Square Enix has a Christmas gift for Kingdom Hearts fans. Today, they announce that 3DS title Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is coming to North America and Europe next year.

It's Square Enix meets Disney again, now with new worlds, new gameplay elements, new enemies and allies, and fancy pants 3D visuals. In it you'll be able to play as either of the series' top protagonists, Riku or Sora. This is a key chapter for the franchise, and director Tetsuya Nomura said he wanted it on the 3DS to "discover new realms of possibility."

It's confirmed for 2012, and I'm sure we'll see the narrowing down of that date in the coming months.

For now, check out the new screenshots in our gallery.
