    I love the entire series of Kingdom Hearts as a whole and throughout the entire series there have been moments that make me feel overwhelmed with happiness, moments that would make my heart ache with sadness, and moments that would shock me and fill me with so much intrigue. Despite my desire to list off all of the different amazing moments of Kingdom Hearts I will say that my one most fond memory of Kingdom Hearts would be the very end of my 100% playthrough of Kingdom Hearts 1 when I was collecting synthesis items to make the ultimate weapon and defeating waves of heartless to hit level 100 while listening to a playlist of different Kingdom Hearts original tracks, remixes, and covers. When I had first started Kingdom Hearts 1 I didn't really hate it but I also didn't consider it to be my favorite game and by the time I had reached this moment I had absolutely fallen in love with the game a thousand times over. To this day Kingdom Hearts 1 is still my favorite game of all time and I honestly don't think anything will ever top it. I'm so happy that I had decided to play through this series because it brought me so much joy.

    While I could write an essay on why I love the series and what it means to me, instead I'm gonna focus on a few specific memories that really stand out. My first experience with the series was watching my older cousin play kh1. I was completely enthralled by all the characters and flashy gameplay and so I begged my mom to buy me a copy. We weren't able to afford much at the time so I had to go to my faithful video rental store and rent a copy for myself. Of course I wasn't able to finish the game in a few days since I was 6 or 7 so I had to wait months until my birthday before I had my own copy. Once my birthday rolled around, I still wasn't able to get it but my cousin gave me his copy (we played the entire day trying to do everything). Whenever I think of kh1 it brings me back to those warm summer days spent with my cousin. After that point, I was hooked. We didn't have internet or anything like that at my home for years and so anytime I was around a computer l, I was watching kh videos. Whether it was the openings, soundtracks, or the classic "kh3 trailers with box art", I watched it all. I also remember the first time I went to the beach and decided to make it a tradition to stand in the waves listening to dearly beloved (which I still do to this day haha). Another tradition I had during my time in school was playing through the kh2 prologue 7 days before school starting. I would play each day in real life and the game up until my "summer vacation was over". As I was writing this, more and more memories kept resurfacing. Long story short, I love this series beyond explanation and it provides me with so much nostalgia of happier days when everything was simple and clean. Thanks for reading.

    Kingdom hearts itself is a memory for me. I played it during some hard times in my life and the idea of getting to play the game always made the struggles worth it. My favorite memory is using "Simple and Clean" to help ease my anxiety. Anytime I had an anxiety attack I just sang "regardless of warning the future doesn't scare me at all" and it helped ease my nerves.

    I have been playing kh since it came out. Throughout the many years and many replays its hard to pinpoint a fond memory. If i had to it would be when kingdom hearts 2 came out. My mom got it for me as an Easter present and i knee she did so i begged her if i could play it early, just for a bit. She let me. I wound beating the game the day before easter. My mom not so pleased but she did rewrap the game and give it back to me. Also, I remember toting around my ps3 to play it at different houses. When the truth came out about roxas i was so sad for him. I went to softball practice and I remembered just standing on the field and just started crying over it. My team didnt get it, but it meant a lot to me. <3

    That is the part that always bugged me about the timeline, until I finally found that basically the YX we see meet Ansem in DDD has the appeareance of Xehanort AFTER the main story of Dark Road (notice the hair bangs) compared to DR where in that same meeting Xehanort has his first hair style (let's call him Student Xehanort) So I spent a long time thinking that they actually meet twice, and the meeting in DDD takes place after the mains story of DR since we do see Student Xehanort sporting the hair bangs in the time skips, but apparently nope, the Xehanort in the DDD screenshot should've always been Student Xehanort, not enough time to do that extra model I guess (could've fixed for the HD and saved me a headache though!) But considering YX is supposed to be the correct model with the hair bangs (only the one in the cutscene above is wrong) Student Xehanort at Scala should NOT have experienced the events of DDD yet or YX in DDD and KH3 would have student's Xehanort hair, I think that when Ansem came back to "set him in the appointed path and gave him the ability to move through time" it was still a long while until he went on with the mission Ansem gave him, up until he already was studying darkness I think one day (after already growing into the age of Young Xehanort) the dormant memory/mission/piece of future Xehanort inside him just "awakened" and that's when he started recruiting the other selves, and probably got his Yellow Eyes (after the main story but before he is named master and recieves no name since he uses another keyblade in DDD and KH3) Another thing is I think the whole game was made to show the folly of blindy following a fate that wasn't meant for you, there are many clues that Xehanort was NOT the child of prophecy, or rather he could've been but failed Just because he can connect and feel others' hearts would mean that he is one, as Baldr also had that ability, and that's what caused his downfall To be precise, Xehanort doesn't "hail from the isles of destiny" yes, he spent his childhood there, but wasn't BORN there, he "hails" from Scala, this might be a nitpick if you think that because he lived 99% of his life in DI he hails from them but could also be taken as a clue that Blue Robe guy was trying to "force" the prophecy into being about him, which brings us to... Blue Robe guy expresses their own doubts about Xehanort being the child, at first he is all like "IT'S NO DOUBT YOU ARE IT" but by the end of the conversation he says it might be too soon (Xehanort is shown asleep by this point so he wouldn't hear that part And of course we have the hindsight of knowing what ends up being of Xehanort's life, he Blue Robe's words about how the Child of Destiny would be the one who can feel and connect with others' heart and become one with them, he kinda does that but in an evil way, using others hearts to manipulate them and even take over their bodies, he doesn't care about connecting with others, even in KH3 he is shown that he doesn't particularly care for the wellbeing of the people who are his vessels, he doesn't fight to defeat darkness but to manipulate it, while the true Child would be the one who actually connects with people, who accepts their hearts into himself and uses those connections to increase his power and the one who truly hails from destiny islands, fighting to keep the light safe and fend off darkness, Sora Going back to what I said before Xehanort COULD have been the child of prophecy but his destiny was altered, as you mention Blue Robe explains that he was taken to the islands to hide him from darkness until he was strong enough, but he only leaves the islands because Ansem appears and opens the portal to the other worlds, so we can't be sure that Xehanort was truly ready to leave the islands, that could've been the first step to have darkness be drawn to him and start his downfall (poison his heart as blue robe says it), Xehanort only knows that he is a special child destined for greatness so in his mind whatever path he takes must be the righteous one which eventually evolves into his complex of: "everyone else is weak, and those who think they are strong are faking it, only some people (me) are truly strong" "I've learned the reason for my existance" "the world needs someone to stand up and lead" Not to mention that I think MoM also kinda sabotaged Xehanort a little bit, I think he planed to have him be a vessel for the last remaining darkness that we now know must be out there, that's why he spured him into going out and see the world, to learn how to resist darkness with the coat and then outgrowing it, having him experience conflict the same way he did with the foretellers in UX, so that he would become the perfect bait for darkness to try to get inside him Would explain MoM's line of "a keyblade wielder willing to side with the darkness?????" he even says it in such a cheeky way, like he was taunting him, MoM's methods may be considered ruthless and too pragmatic but if there is one thing we know is that everything he does it in order to defeat the primordial darknesses, no matter what it takes, so him just being OK with a strong wielder like Xehanort to side with his true enemy, darkness, always seem weird....... that is, unless he wanted Xehanort to feel the need to understand and get closer to darkness so he could be the final vessel to hold them in place until they can be truly defeated, basically the goal of the next Saga

    I've been having a blast drawing Y!Xehanort recently. Even more so while I wait for the unknown date of it's update release of Dark Road. I may consider drawing something Xehanort related from the story that stood out to me and post it every week...maybe. We'll see how my energy will sustain itself. But something to keep me occupied. This scene stuck with me since I first watched it back in 2020. Even more so that it was the final nail in the coffin that made Y!Xehanort my favorite character in the series. It made me want to learn more about him and I want the update to get here sooner to finally have all the answers that I needed.

    Bring Arts Roxas and Ventus.

    True, I will try to find in Ebay or asked around in the community who either sells them or in other areas. These 2 boys are just so rare to find now a days. Unless in the future Bringarts figures of Roxas they plan to release Roxas Twilight Town Outfit. That would be worth to get him.

    The ARTNIA cafe, a locale often used for video game-themed collaborations, has teased new artwork for their tenth anniversary. One such illustration by Tetsuya Nomura depicts Brain from Kingdom Hearts, Jack Garland from Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin, and Zack Fair from the Final Fantasy VII series. If clearer photos of this illustration are shared, we'll update this article. As of now, it is planned to be displayed at the cafe.

    I have had so many memories with this series, starting at the early age of 7, my journey with Kingdom Hearts has been incredible, emotional, and unique to me. After playing all the games to this point, I would most certainly say that my fondest memory of this game has to be my reaction to the ending cutscene of KH3 with "Don't Think Twice" playing alongside it. The moment Sora disappears hit me unbelievably hard, but it overloaded me with so many memories I've had playing this game. At that moment, I was reminded just how much this game means to me and how long it has been a part of my life. Growing up with this game and seeing Sora gone had me in disbelief. it made me wonder how much a small video game has impacted my life. I don't think that will ever change; Kingdom Hearts just does that to me. Thank you for the experiences and I can't wait to continue following the path this amazing game takes.

    When I went to the Kingdom Hearts concert and heard the music live for the first time. It was so emotional! The first song they played was Simple and Clean orchestral with the Dream Drop Distance opening playing on the screen, and now hearing that song still gets me a little emotional

    Yes, please, if they do port FFXIII, I hope it’s with the DLCs - but they didn’t do that with the PC port so I don’t think I’ll get my hopes up I wonder why it’s taken so long for them to port FFXIII since it’s considered “old” by now. It wasn’t that poorly received…

    In the end I chose Hoder because her design makes it clear and believable that she's Baldr's sister, but it was so hard to choose! They're all so well designed!

    Dark Road has come to an end, and with it, we got new revelations into what led Xehanort down his dark path to become a seeker of darkness. However, not everything was revealed and some questions remain. This was even brought up in a recent Q&A for Dark Road: Therefore, knowing what we do know, I will attempt to put together a timeline of Xehanort's life together, starting with when he was born and ending with Birth by Sleep since I feel that after that the events of his life become pretty straightforward. During that time, I will point out when I believe Xehanort became the seeker of darkness.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake has received many unique mods, comprising cosmetic alterations to gameplay changes. Recently, one standout mod that can be seen as a fusion of both umbrella avenues is by user ColossalCake, depicting protagonist Cloud Strife with the iconic Kingdom Key. This weapon was actually made from scratch to fit Final Fantasy VII Remake's world better, as its size should reflect. In fact, the sheer difference in size between this recreation and the Kingdom Key in Kingdom Hearts proper has to do with it mimicking the hitboxes of Cloud's weapons in-game. However, the sound effects emitted from the Kingdom Key here are cleverly taken from Kingdom Hearts III. Regarding gameplay incorporations, the Kingdom Key houses four unique Materia slots, which, for those unaware, are essentially ways to customize weapon builds. Additionally, it can replace either the Buster Sword or Mythril Blade weapons for Cloud. Lastly of note is that aside from ColossalCake performing the mod's texture and modeling work, the following individuals also provided noteworthy contributions of their own: matyalatte for their FF7R-mesh-importer, FF7R-DDS-tools, and Blender-Uasset-Add-on tool. Yoraiz0r for their AudioMog tool. spiritovod for their Umodel tool. FluffyQuack for their unrealpak tool. If you'd like to download this impressive mod and/or view additional screenshots, check out its dedicated Nexus Mods page. View full article

    “Interestingly, Nomura states how he was the one being picky about Sora's recent inclusion into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, not Disney. The latter party was actually quite eager, while Nomura thought it would clash with the "established lore in Kingdom Hearts and the Disney worlds." ” Nomura, I love you, but there doesn’t always have to be lore reasons 😅

    Recreation of the KH4 trailer music!

    Hey yall, I recreated the KH4 trailer music with some other musicians and thought you might enjoy it! It sounds super accurate to the real deal too! I know others have done their versions of this first, but I've really been working super hard for the last month to make sure it's the highest quality possible, so I'd really appreciate the support https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-D1XZaBC9sc

    As in Riku and Kairi taking over asSora’s main party members instead of Donald and Goofy because I think it’s high time we got more of them together as a trio for the sake of interaction, development and seeing the original three (humans) together. Something KH III refused to give us.

    My Wishlist for Kingdom Hearts IV

    OI want Nomura to be totally free and not feel tied down to anything. I loved the Dark Seeker Saga and I was happy with what we got in terms of lore, but now is a fresh start. In terms of a darker game, the stakes need to be there. My biggest gripe was that you didn’t fear for the main vast, yes bad things happened, but there was an assumption it would be sorted out. We need a valid reason to fear the antagonists. In terms of worlds, no issue with Star Wars or marvel done well. As long as they are fun, that’s what matters. I never enjoyed Beauty and the Beast as a film, sure did enjoy Beast’s Castle for an example.

    My Wishlist for Kingdom Hearts IV

    I love the idea of playing as Yozora sometimes. He's a pretty awesome character. I also like the idea of this entry having a darker tone, as Sora has done a lot of growing up and it would be nice to see the game grow with him. I also completely agree that they should keep the properties used to just original Disney rather than purchased properties. Unfortunately, there's a theory that Star Wars will be appearing in this entry, and unfortunately the evidence is pretty hard to refute right now. In the announcement trailer, you can make out what appears to be an AT-ST foot in the forest section, indicating that the forest in question is actually the Forest Moon of Endor from Return of the Jedi. I'm really hoping this turns out to be untrue, but at this point I could see it happening.

    I hope that "Kingdom Hearts 4" are coming in 2024 to the game consoles and the beginning of a new story arc, "Lost Master arc", since E3 2022 event had been cancelled on this year, because of COVID-19 pandemic!!! Now, I can't wait for see more details about Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary celebration, a sneak preview of the upcoming games, the last chapter of "Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road" in the updates, "Kingdom Hearts: Missing-Link" and "Kingdom Hearts 4"!!! And that must be work in progress for a new game, "Kingdom Hearts 4" and "Kingdom Hearts: Missing-Link", which take place after "Kingdom Hearts: Union x(cross)" and before "Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road", which was going back in time!! And also, the legendary Kingdom Hearts characters are finally coming to Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary celebration, "The World's Most Magical Celebration", because Sora, Riku, Kairi, Lea, Roxas, Xion, Terra, Ventus and Aqua are looking everywhere for King Mickey and his friends and all characters in the alternate dimensions as "EARTH"!! And because of Disney announcements, I've attended on D23 Expo 2022 event on this September!!! Because I want to see every Disney movies, games, TV Shows, shorts, specials, documentaries, books and music, along with more details about Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary event, EPCOT's transformation, Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary celebration and The Walt Disney Company's 100th anniversary celebration!!! LET'S GO AND SEE THEM ALL, AGAIN!!!

    I think there will definitely be a new game announced. While it would like it to be KH IV, I imagine it's more likely to be a game to bridge the gap between KHIII and IV. That being said, though, I think the bridge game will be in the realm of Verum Rex, and we will play as Yozora, learning who he is, what his world is like, how the Nameless Star ended up in the Final World, etc. I'm also reeeeally hoping for a Union Cross port to consoles, because the story was so interesting, but it got so hard to play.

    We know ultimately that it’s all Three Terra, Aqua & Ventus. but Imo It’s Ventus. 1. the Game starts with Ventus as He Dives to the Heart (just like Sora and Roxas), and he’s mainly the Main controllable character in the Prologue. 2. Most artworks of BBS has Ventus sitting in the center 3. The story of Birth by Sleep is mostly about Xehanort wanting to forge The X-blade (Ventus) in order to take control of kingdom hearts. the only reason he even needs a younger body (Terra) is just to make sure he can see his plans come to fruition before his old body gives out. 4. Vanitas and the Unversed came from Ventus, Xehanort tasks Vanitas to spread his Unversed everywhere just to lure Ventus to the outside world, and it also forced Eraqus to send Terra and Aqua to the outside world as well. 5. Ventus has a big connection with Sora and Master Xehanort. 6. He’s at the center of every conflict, everyone is either after him or worried about him. Terra and Aqua trying to protect him, Eraqus is trying to dispose of him for the sake of the world, Xehanort wants him for his big plan, Vanitas wants to fuse with him to obtain the legendary χ-blade. 7. He saves worlds and many people on his journey, and he doesn’t leave any mess behind (similar to Aqua). 8. He Has the most epic flashy cinematic final boss battle among the Wayfinder trio. 9. His heroic sacrifice stopped the X-blade for good. 10. Ventus goes through character development and even faces his obstacles and conquers them, he faces Vanitas and succeeds in destroying the X-blade and ruins Xehanort’s plan (Terra meanwhile does also have some character development in his story, but he fails in conquering his obstacles and gets possessed by the villain and becomes the main antagonist of the Series. and Aqua is like the hero of the trio, but she doesn’t go through a clear character development until the sequel game 0.2, and also in her debuted game she like Terra, failed in conquering her obstacles cause she couldn’t save Ventus from the X-blade, and she let Xehanort roam free with Terra’s body)

    Thanks for letting me know about that @WakelessDream regarding spoilers on the Kingdom Hearts games and on films in general I greatly appreciate it. I agree the designer who made the Soul Keyblade really captured the themes and design found in the film. My favorite as you said it yourself is the Piano keys being the teeth of the keyblade, the hilt being the badges for the soul's characteristics and the Maple seed leaf that 22 in Joe's body discovered as the keychain. Just imagine the different Keyblades from the different Pixar worlds we may visit (e.g. Coco, Inside Out, Onward, etc.) in the next games, I imagine the Coco keyblade be based on Héctor's Guitar. Speaking of which a user made fan keyblades of Coco and Inside Out along with several others in the links down below: Coco's themed Keyblade. Inside Out themed Keyblade Fanart Keyblade Gallery 1 Fanart Keyblade Gallery 2 Finally regarding on Raya and the Last Dragon trailer, I agree while it's too early to know for sure how the film would work as a world until the film comes out next month, all I can is that as you said Sisu, the Land of Kumandra and Raya herself as a Party Member for Sora would make for a very awesome level for Kingdom Hearts. Speaking of Party members, I really hope we get more Female Party Members in Sora's party in the Disney worlds for the next games, because I’ve been noticing in the numbered KH titles we ONLY get one female Disney character in Sora’s party for the specific Disney world he visits, cause in the first Kingdom Hearts game it was Ariel, in Kingdom Hearts II we had Mulan and in Kingdom Hearts III it was Rapunzel (until her hair was cut) but for unknown reasons Go Go and Honey Lemon weren't included as party members for San Fransokyo. I do hope that Kingdom Hearts IV breaks the mold and brings in more female Disney characters in Sora's party such as Judy Hopps, Moana, Merida, Violet Parr, Helen Parr/Elasti Girl, Raya, Elsa, and Anna, instead of leaving it with just ONE female Disney character. But back on Raya as a party member I imagine her having a good dynamic with Sora and Co. and the sword (which also is an Urumi) can be an interesting weapon she uses in combat for short range and long range attacks, plus Imagine the teamup limit she would have with Sora. Regarding Sisu, I agree I can imagine her humorous and sassy attitude when she interacts with Sora, Donald and Goofy and be the next Disney character that will have fun interactions to the Trio after the Genie, Mushu and Olaf. The environment and lands of Kumandra as seen in the trailer would also be fun areas to explore, it just would all come down to how much of the world in terms of exploration would be explored, if it's different from the other Disney worlds (new and returning) in terms of environment and especially if Nomura and his team are interested on including the film as a world for the next numbered KH title (which I'm very confident it will be in KHIV for sure, no question). My biggest hope is that if the film becomes a world it doesn't suffer the same treatment as Arendelle and especially Kingdom of Corona from Kingdom Hearts III, but that would be a discussion on another topic.

    Indeed I too am excited for the KH3 soundtrack. Although I am sad because I'm going to have to get used to calling the tracks by their official names and not their fan made names. I'll have to forget about "Key To All" and call it "Dark Domination" instead. Honestly, some fan made names are absolute fire!
