I have been obsessed with this game probably since the seventh or eight grade. Now although it is a kids game and I am now 27 years old going to be 28 years old, I dare say that this is one of the greatest games I have ever played.
If you guys have followed my blog and my books then you will know that I am also a Final Fantasy freak. I eat Square Enix for breakfast. I have played Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12. No I have not played 15. It didnt get my attention.
Yes, I love Kingdom Hearts more than Final Fantasy and finally Square Enix (Nomura) decided on a release date. 2018 is going to be a huge year for RPG gamers and Disney lovers. With the recent trailer revealing the world of Toy Story fans went crazy, my self included.
The wait was torture and the side quest were annoying. Side quest such as 365 days, Dream Drop Distance, Re:coded and Unchained. It was just a way for Square enix to juice more money out of the franchise which I happily gave them my wallet. Nomura focuses on quality which I appreciate, however, I think the wait was too long and yet……I am glad that it took so much.
Why waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3 for so long was actually a good thing.
Let me put it this way. After watching the trailer with Sora in the world of Toy Story, how good do you think it would have looked like in the PS2 or PS3. Think about that for a moment. The Unreal Engine software has given Kingdom Hearts such a realistic and smooth look not only that put it has also allowed the developers to add more movement to Sora’s virtual body.
Sure, Kingdom Hearts 2 for PS2 was cool and then the HD version for PS3 was alright. However, quality is important and that is why it was better to wait for the game to be released for the PS4. I am not sure if you noticed but the worlds in Kingdom Hearts 3 are going to be massive. Look at the Herculies world. It is 10 times bigger than in the other games. There are areas that we have not even seen yet. It is almost like an open world (Skyrium anyone). If Nomura was in too much of a hurry and release the game for PS3, we would not have seen have the goodness that we have seen in previous trailers.
In one of the 2017 trailers, we saw Sora running in the rain. There has never been a weather system in Kingdom Hearts but it looks like now it will happen. Also the many Keyblade transformations, the vehicle summoning, the new drive forms and now you can have more than 3 party members in your team. The story will be longer. There will be more gameplay, more things to do. Honestly, always felt as though the kingdom hearts games for the PS one and PS2 were short. the first game could be finished within 24 hours. The second game could be finished within 48 hours. Now it seems that it will take a good 80 hours of game play to finish the game. This also means that the level up system might change due to the massive world.
All this could not have been done if part 3 was released for the PS3. I am glad that they waited. As angry as I was over the years, it was a good choice to wait for the PS4 to come out.
I am an author and I have experience problems when releasing a book to quick. Especially now with self publishing. Indie authors are too quick to release a book with many spelling errors. Square Enix is all about quality and as a gamer you should expect the best quality game, instead of some half ass project released as a draft.
The kingdom hearts worlds have gotten bigger and bigger. Sora can now do park core…..YES PARK CORE.
Along with other amazing stunts that we will soon see.

and that is all I know for now.
This game is like meth and cocaine for me. I played the old games more than ten times. I heard that Spider Man was suppose to join Kingdom Hearts since Disney bought Marvel but I would want that. They also said they were pondering about adding Wolverine. I say maybe as a secret boss.
Anyways, thanks for reading.
