Hold up... Tron Legacy in Kingdom Hearts?

Square-Enix released a new trailer from Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for the 3DS and it is filled with spoilers everywhere a month before it comes out at Japan (You are warned! - Footage from the main two games are in this clip). What struck out for me, well its the first time I seen it, is Tron Legacy stuff in a Kingdom Hearts game. I think this is replacing the original Tron content for the rest of the franchise and the characters from the movie make cameo appearances from the protagonist, Olivia Wilde's character, and Jeff Bridges too. In terms of the spoilers, main story stuff is revealed if you can understand what in the world is going on as I expect Nomura to screw things somehow. He also said in some interview that it is some prologue for Kingdom Hearts III, whenever they decide to make that game. Anyway, Kingdom Hearts 3D should be coming out later this year stateside coinciding with the franchise's 10th anniversary.

Prepare to get Rick-Rolled on Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone as Harmonix finally delivers arguably their most requested song for Rock Band 3 DLC today with Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." There are other songs out today as well like Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," but getting rick-rolled is the main highlight of the bunch.

Oh... as for the rest of the week on this blog, expect hands-on impressions of the Mass Effect 3 demo and Street Fighter X Tekken as I hope to play that at Wednesday Night Fights tomorrow night.
