To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the popular yet convoluted Kingdom Hearts series, Square Enix, the folks who make the video game, announced two new entries to the series along with a bunch of merchandise.
Hot Dog! Here We Go Again!
In the 7 minutes and 40 seconds long Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary Announcement Trailer, Square Enix unveiled two new games in the series: Kingdom Hearts Missing Link, a mobile game that looks like a web game made in flash, and Kingdom Hearts 4, the ~13th game in the series.
Here’s the trailer:
Skip to a little past the 4-minute mark if you want to see teenagers with faces like infants fighting Ultraman sized kaiju like a Kamen Rider.
If you’re like some of us and feel that the story of Kingdom Hearts is as clear as concrete and just as impenetrable, here’s A Good Enough Summary of Kingdom Hearts by Barry Kramer [recommendation]. There’s also a follow-up video for Kingdom Hearts 3 and it’s good.
The Money Pit
Alongside the games, Square Enix also announced Kingdom Hearts merchandise to go along with the celebration and there are a lot of them.
There’s Play Arts Kai Action Figure, plushies, keychains, rings, pendants, plates, pins bags and more.
With the current exchange rates, there’s almost nothing you can buy with the ePemula government assistance.
