It’s been nearly 15 years since the release of Kingdom Hearts II, on Sony’s PlayStation 2, back in December 2005. And while there have been a myriad of oddly playing, obscurely-titled off-shoots in between, they never quite scratched the fandom’s itch. It’s been nearly two years since we’ve posted a story here, for the release of another of Square’s long awaited titles in Final Fantasy XV, but for something we were all wishing for back in this site’s heyday - it felt appropriate to come back for this: Kingdom Hearts III has, at long last, released worldwide. 15 years to write that. Crazy. So for the fans of the series who have waited an eternity - and to anyone who’s read our KHIII coverage over the years - we hope it’s everything you have wanted it to be. Enjoy~

While the additional development time has yielded significant improvements to FINAL FANTASY XV, the whole situation is still a bit suspicious.

I would argue that position has been usurped by the consistently excellent anime Brotherhood. Whereas Brotherhood is quite good, Kingsglaive is just good enough. This isn’t to say that Kingsglaive is bad. With stunning visuals and a gripping score, the foundation for an excellent movie...
