My Favourite Disney Game - Kingdom Hearts

Hello lovelies! Lize in Disney are back for another collaboration and this time we're talking about our favourite Disney games! Basically we're trying to convince each other to play our favourite game and we're hoping we can convince some of you guys to try them too!

If you've been following me for a while on Instagram or Twitter it will probably be no surprise to you that I'm going to be talking about Kingdom Hearts for my post. I started playing these games for the first time last year and I fell in love pretty much right from the start! Since then they've become a huge part of my life and I've even had to create a second Instagram account to contain all my KH fangirling!

As the Kingdom Hearts storyline isn't the easiest to get your head around, I thought I'd explain these games by splitting my explanation into questions and answers of the sorts of things I wanted to know when I started playing. I hope this helps explain this beautiful series a little!

What's Kingdom Hearts about?
Kingdom Hearts are action role-playing games which mainly involve around Sora and his two friends Riku and Kairi (the Pop figure in the photo above) as they seek out new worlds and ultimately try to keep the balance between light and darkness.

How are they Disney games?
Kingdom Hearts is a collaboration between Square Enix (who makes the Final Fantasy and new Tomb Raider games) and Disney so it's packed full of Disney characters and worlds you can explore. Most of the time you're joined on your adventures with Donald and Goofy as your sidekicks and oh my goodness, if you didn't love these two before, you will after Kingdom Hearts. I would protect grumpy ol' Donald with my life now!

What Disney movies are in the games?
There's so many Disney films that feature throughout the games - some you'll see in quite a few of the games such as Aladdin and Hercules and there's even some of the more modern classics too like Tangled, Frozen and Big Hero 6 in the latest game! You'll also see your favourite classic Disney characters too such as Mickey and Chip & Dale.

How many games are there?
There are 3 games in the main trilogy but 10 games overall and 1 movie in the storyline. Although Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and 3 are the main games, there's important content for the overall storyline in all of the games and the movie so if you want to play Kingdom Hearts 3 (the latest game) you'll need to have played or watched the cutscene movies of all the instalments to be able to understand what the heck is going on!

Try not to worry about any of this before you play it though, once you try one of the games you'll likely find yourself desperate to find out more of the story anyway!

Which game should I play first?
Although there are games set before it, Kingdom Hearts 1 is the best one to start with because it introduces you to the main characters and setting and the gameplay is pretty easy to understand too!

I'm not really a gamer - will I be able to play Kingdom Hearts?
Yes! KH1 is totally accessible even if you're not a seasoned gamer. I hadn't played a console game in years before I picked up Kingdom Hearts and I had no trouble getting the hang of it!

I want to buy it! What should I get?
Because Kingdom Hearts 1 came out way back in 2002 it's since been remastered which is called "Kingdom Hearts Final Mix". If you have a Playstation 4 you can get the "Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX" collection which has six of the games on including Final Mix or if you want to get everything in one go, the Playstation Store has the "Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Package" which has every instalment on (even the new Kingdom Hearts 3) except the mobile game.

Enough with all this text! Is there a video I can watch to get an idea of what it's like?
This trailer gives a good picture of what Kingdom Hearts 1 is like. You can also watch the cinematic opening too - this was what originally got me interested in the games!

I really hope this post convinces someone to try these games because it's the most wholesome, fun and heartbreaking series I've ever played! If there's anything you'd like to ask about Kingdom Hearts or if you'd just like to fangirl with me over these games, feel free to pop me a message on my Kingdom Hearts Instagram account.
