Kingdom Hearts 3

It seems as though Kingdom Hearts fans are super thirsty because Square Enix has already shipped 5 million copies of Kingdom Hearts 3. While this doesn't necessarily mean that the game has sold 5 million units, it's still a very good indicator that the game is selling like hot cakes. Kingdom Hearts 3 was just released on January 29, 2019.

Square Enix did confirm that the 5 million figure does include both digital and physical units. They also go on to confirm that Kingdom Hearts 3 is the fastest selling game in the history of the franchise. This game is also the first one in the franchise to release on both PlayStation and Xbox platforms. It's actually kind of weird that the previous games were never released on the Xbox but Kingdom Hearts 3 was. Ah well, not my problem.

The shipment and digital sales numbers for the long-awaited installment in the blockbuster franchise have been matched with critical adoration. Media across the world are lauding KINGDOM HEARTS III for its breathtaking visuals and widespread appeal to newcomers and series veterans alike, with Bleacher Report praising that the adventure is “accessible for even the most casual of gamers” and “a sheer thrill to take in,” and CNET raving that KINGDOM HEARTS III is “the best looking Kingdom Hearts game.”

KINGDOM HEARTS III tells a heartwarming story about the power of friendship and light vs. darkness, as players follow a young Keyblade wielder named Sora, who is joined by Donald Duck, Goofy and his friends to protect the universe from an evil force known as the Heartless. Set in a vast array of worlds including but not limited to Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen, Tangled, Big Hero 6 and Hercules; Pixar Animation Studios’ Toy Story and Monsters, Inc.; and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, Sora and his friends unite with iconic Disney and Pixar characters to overcome tremendous challenges and persevere against the darkness invading their worlds.
As for me, I just started playing the first Kingdom Hearts game (specifically Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix in the PS4 bundle) for the first time ever last night. That sure is a game. Yup. That's about all I have to say about that right now.
