A little more backstory: In Kingdom Hearts, Sora wields the magical keyblade in search of his lost friends, making new ones with Disney’s Goofy and Donald along the way. The story continues through classic Disney stories like Aladdin, Hercules, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, and The Nightmare Before Christmas! Utilizing RPG mechanics and gaining new exploratory powers throughout his adventure, Sora solidified himself as a starry-eyed hero that bridged Disney classics with a unique overarching story of friendship and courage.

Final Fantasy fans can expect appearances by famous characters such as Cloud, Selphie, Aeris, and Cid, or even the infamous fan favorite Sephiroth!

It’s a great time to get started on the series if you’re a newcomer now that this edition is being made exclusively available to PlayStation 3 with full trophy support. But long-time fans will likewise be thrilled to replay the original and see their favorite moments relived in crisp HD colors and graphics.
