Kingdom Hearts

To my son I honored this post…

Kingdom Hearts (キングダムハーツ ,Kingudamu Hātsu?) is an action role-playing game that was created in Japan. Developed and published by Square Co. (now Square Enix) which originated in Japan. It was released in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 video game console.

Kingdom Hearts was a departure from Square’s standard role-playing games by introducing a substantial action-adventure element to the gameplay. In addition, it has an all-star voice cast which includes many of the Disney characters’ official voice actors. Kingdom Hearts was longtime Square character designer Tetsuya Nomura’s first time in a directorial position.

The game was praised for its unusual combination of action and role-playing, as well as its unexpectedly harmonious mix of Square and Disney motifs. It received numerous year-end “Best” video game awards, was a dominating presence in the 2002 holiday season, and went on to achieve Sony “Greatest Hits” status. Since its release, Kingdom Hearts has sold over 5.6 million copies worldwide and has prompted two sequels. Three more titles are currently being developed, which have a connection to a future, unannounced game.

I’m so proud of all the success it’s had and I can’t wait for the 3rd game to come out! There’s also a game coming out for Nintendo DS focusing on the character Roxas and Organization XIII.
