The Kingdom Hearts TV series pilot finally sees the light of day thanks to the original director

An interesting insight into what could have been. Did you know that a Kingdom Hearts TV series was in development back in the day? Well it was, and the original director shared the pilot earlier this week. The Kingdom Hearts TV series was an American developed take on the original game, but it never got off the ground. While bits and pieces of the show have appeared online over the years, like storyboards and various pieces of art, a full pilot has been the holy grail that fans have been after for years. Now, director of the project Seth Kearsley…

Kingdom Hearts is beatable with a Dance Dance Revolution pad, as proven by a Twitch streamer

MomoPkmn95 was inspired by similar challenge runs. Turns out that the first Kingdom Hearts can be beaten in its entirety using a Dance Dance Revolution 2 pad, as proven by a Twitch streamer. While we’re all waiting on the next two installments of Kingdom Hearts, certain players have taken the liberty of proving that there’s more than one way to beat the games (via PCGamesN). Twitch streamer MomoPkmn95, inspired by players beating games in silly ways, decided to try out something similar, and landed on beating the original Kingdom Hearts with a DDR2 dance pad. “I became curious about using…

Kingdom Hearts 4 Sleuthers Find Sora’s Apartment IRL, And It Ain’t Cheap

Kingdom Hearts stans are tearing all the meat off the bones from the recent Kingdom Hearts IV announcement trailer, picking it apart for any and all possible details about Sora’s upcoming adventure. There’s a bit of disappointment to go with the hype, like the painful revelation that our big-shoed hero doesn’t actually have big feet. On the positive side, however, there’s been some intrepid detective work that’s turned up some compelling results. One self-proclaimed “Square Enix fangirl” named Audrey “aitaikimochi” Lamsam has found the actual Tokyo apartment that seems to be the basis for the one in which Sora wakes…

Kingdom Hearts 4 announced, and some think it’s hinting at a Star Wars crossover

Over the weekend, Square Enix surprise-announced Kingdom Hearts 4, the next big game in their incomprehensible RPG series which stars Disney cartoon characters as pop-punk boyband multiverse superheroes. I am mildly distressed to see KH4 lean towards a ‘realistic’ art style in parts, though I would be curious to see a Kingdom Hearts Mickey Mouse that’s just a wee mouse wrapped in leather, plaid, buckles, and zips. While KH4 is largely a mystery for now, eagle-eyed viewers think the announcement trailer hints at a crossover with the Disney Princess world of Star Wars. Read more

An Extremely Goofy Performance Of ‘Simple And Clean’

You don’t have to be a Kingdom Hearts fan to experience goosebumps running up your arm when you hear the first infectious notes of Hikaru Utada’s “Simple and Clean.” From its early appearance in commercials to its continued use in the series, “Simple and Clean” is a beloved anthem of Kingdom Hearts thanks to Utada’s beautifully angelic vocals. But what if Goofy, the captain of the Royal Knights of King Mickey’s court, sang the classic tune instead?
