In the Kingdom Hearts series, the player character often teams up with two other party members as you explore the game's various Disney worlds. In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance however, players use friendly versions the game's monsters—called "Dream Eaters"—as party members instead of the usual Disney characters.

Besides leveling-up through battle, your Dream Eaters can be improved in a series of augmented reality games using the 3DS' cameras. And though these AR games are playable, they're still not very good.

Check out the video above to see a few of these AR games in action.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance was released in Japan on March 29, 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS. A western release is planned for sometime in summer 2012.
