20 Years of Kingdom Hearts

I’ve been having these weird thoughts lately…like is any of this for real or not?

On this day 20 years ago Disney and Square Enix released one of the most bestselling video games of all time, Kingdom Hearts………Edd: In Japan. Ok sure it wasn’t released in America yet but still technically it’s the 28th in Japan right now. Kingdom Hearts is a series that means a lot to my brother and me. I’ve already talked about my history and praise for this series three years ago so I’m not going to repeat myself. Instead, I’ve decided to share a few Kingdom Hearts themed top 10 lists.
