BY KAVAN MCDAID: The Kingdom Hearts series has always been special to me since my childhood. A classic RPG with a simple message for those viewing the world through a dark lens; “Kingdom Hearts is light”.
My first introduction to Kingdom Hearts was during a sleepover at a friend’s house where we played the first game together. Being young at the time I wasn’t really able to quite grasp the controls and what exactly was going on but I loved the aesthetic of traverse town and Sora as a character. Then one fateful day afterwards, I saw it, Kingdom Hearts 2 for PS2. I got home, put it in the disk tray and started on my magical journey. With a very little idea about what to expect next, I was blown away that the title sequence alone.
