Today is September 17th 2022. 20 years ago, on this day, Square Enix and Disney released the first instalment of the Kingdom Hearts franchise.

Over 13 titles later, the series has grown stronger than ever. Happy anniversary to this wonderful series :)

Happy 20th KH-NA! Can’t believe it’s been two decades. For those who may not know, this release was the first appearance of Sephiroth, Ice Titan, and Kurt Zisa as they were absent from the original Japanese version. This lead to the creation of Final Mix for Japan, which added even more.

(Sad there wasn’t a peep from the official KH social media accounts, but not surprised.)

I still remember being starstruck by the commercials (both Utada's voice and the visuals), begging my parents to buy it for me, being hyped for it all day at school (only for nobody else in the world to know what it was it seemed like...), and then staying up for the next week and a half playing it and being a zombie during classes. I had to keep playing until I saw the scenes of Ursula and Maleficent that were in the ads, and they didn't disappoint. <3

These days Kingdom Hearts and other things I liked as a child (such as Sailor Moon) seem so much more mainstream. It's so weird to be at a store and see merchandise for them when it felt like they existed in another universe only available online for me as a child. So many memories thanks to this franchise, and hopefully many more to come. Happy anniversary, KH. :)

Happy anniversary to Kingdom Hearts, my favorite gaming series. It might be a crazy mess at times, but I love this series and will continue to follow it for as long as it runs!

Happy 20th NA Anniversary KH, I started playing the series back in 2010 when BBS was coming out. I remember being on Youtube back in 2007 when KH2 was still new. And seeing these random anime AMVS starring a random kid with big ass shoes running up a staircase and then being shocked at freaking Donald Duck accompanying him. That was the start of this crazy ass journey going strong to this day and my introduction to Sora one of my favorite video game characters <3
