Kingdoms Hearts is an early/mid 2000s classic for all that grew up playing video games during those years. It is a RPG/adventure series drawing on lovable Disney and Anime characters.

The main cast includes the likes of characters such as Sora and Riku, and even more familiar ones like Mickey Mouse and Goofy.

It would be a 13-year long wait for KH fans to get to the recently released Kingdom Hearts III as the previous release was back in 2005 with Kingdom Hearts II.

This came as a shock to many as the last time an update on development for the game was back in 2013. At last, Tetsuya Nomura made it clear that Kingdom Hearts III was to be released on January 29, 2019.

The first week sales? They were crazy. Square Enix would in their first week alone sell over 5 million units (including physical and digital sales). This would make it the fastest selling installment in the series by far. Similarly, another beloved remake was also on the market, Resident Evil 2, and it also sold units with flying colors.

Even now in mid-February, people continue to rush to the stores to purchase the game and relive the memories of their youth.
