To do:
  • There are many things that need to be added to the page, images first of all.
  • Unused HUD graphics and screenshots from the early stages of the game's development still exist in the game's files, along with a few minimaps.
  • At least two unused items, the Whirligig and Fireworks, can be found.
  • References to a scrapped Jungle Book world (more specifically, a Dive Mode map for the world) can be found, along with several unused and untextured room maps, one of which suggests Treasure Planet was originally planned to appear in this game.
  • Supposedly, Riku's Keyblade list in the files mentions Kingdom Key D, which can be used by him and even has a different appearance for when being used inside The Grid.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is the seventh game in the Kingdom Hearts series.

Scrapped Worlds

To do:
  • Screenshots and/or a rip of the pirate ship model.
  • What is the filename for the room with the pirate ship in it, for clarity's sake?
  • Can anything be seen/ripped from the Jungle Book map, or is it completely inaccessible?

11 rooms for a world with the prefix "tp" can be found in the game's files. While 10 of these rooms point to the same placeholder area, one of the rooms leads to an empty void with a featureless and textureless pirate ship placed in the middle of it. Based on the pirate ship's presence, as well as the prefix of the world ("tp", other worlds in the series have used similar designations/abbrevations for their names, eg. "hb" for Hollow Bastion and "tt" for Twilight Town), it's been assumed these are remnants of a world based on Treasure Planet that was cut from the game.

In addition, a Dive Mode map with the prefix of "jb" (the same prefix used for the scrapped rooms based on the Jungle Book in Birth by Sleep) has also been found.
