On January 25th,2019. Square Enix Released the newest addition to complete the Kingdom Hearts Trilogy. For many people, this game franchise is a cherished memory and has been long overdue.

The game takes place in a Disney/ Pixar universe, you play as Sora, the main protagonist in the game franchise, and explore different worlds made up of certain movies, for instance, Monsters Inc., Tangled, Pirates of The Carribean, Toy Story, and several others. Sora’s job is to keep the planet’s order and guarantee it’s safety, along with Donald and Goofy, you experience a long action-packed story, along with several funny moments and amazing graphics.

But what is an action game without a few villains? In the Kingdom Hearts universe, there is a group of villains known as Organization XIII. These villains and heroes have clashed several times in the previous games and will continue as long as Darkness and LIght exist.

Sora and the other “half pints”, Donald and Goofy, are not alone in the fight against the Dark, there are 7 key players on the side of light, and 13 for the side of the dark. Throughout the game series, the 7 heroes of the light wield “Keyblades”. While the dark side contains 13 wielders of darkness. For the seven keyblade wielders there are Sora, Riku, Axel, Kyrie, Aqua, Ventus, and Roxas.  For the thirteen Darknesses, there are Master Xehanort, Xemnas, Ansem, young Xehanort, Xigbar, Saix, Luxord, Demyx, Marluxia, Vanitas, larxene, and Vexen.

Wait a minute… That was only 12! Who is the thirteenth? Master Xehanort intended for Sora to be the thirteenth darkness, through discourage and loss of hope, a heart can be taken in the world of Kingdom Hearts, and it can also be controlled. Master Xehanort has almost captured Sora a few times throughout the game series.

Kingdom Hearts as a series is a very good one. It will almost absolutely bring a smile on your face from the wacky humor embedded in the game’s code, along with the intense moments and extraordinary storyline. Kingdom Hearts 3 is an extremely fun game and is nearly guaranteed to bring you a good time as you play through the immense story.
