Neku Sakuraba appearing alongside Sora in Kingdom Hearts 3D (Dream Drop Distance). Though Square Enix has yet to answer fans prayers and put out a sequel to The World Ends With You, it has plopped the DS RPG’s hero into the next Kingdom Hearts game, according to a demo shown at Tokyo Game Show.
“Neku appears as a guest character in Sora’s side of the TGS demo — though not a playable guest. Both Neku and his rival/friend/frienemy Riku team up with captured dream-monsters this time around rather than fighting alongside licensed characters. Neku’s role is more that of the Disney-world guests from previous games.
He shows up, reveals that he’s caught in a “game,” leaving him 43 minutes to win or die. Naturally, he asks Sora to be his partner but ultimately decides the tousle-haired protagonist is ‘a weird guy’ and takes off. Sora follows, riding rails in pursuit of Neku, but quickly encounters a boss battle set in a cul-de-sac of Traverse Town.”
