Kingdom Hearts release date
The good folks at SquareSoft have made it official: Kingdom Hearts will ship to stores nationwide on the 17th of September. The Disney meets Final Fantasy hybrid is one of the most anticipated titles of the year, and thus far has been one of the most herald titles of the year in the press.
"KINGDOM HEARTS will deliver a unique interactive gaming experience that melds Square and Disney entertainment legacies of animation, design, story-telling and character development," said Jun Iwasaki, president of Square Electronic Arts. "KINGDOM HEARTS represents a truly unique role-playing game experience, combining more than 100 Disney characters and new and familiar Disney worlds in one game. We are also excited to offer new elements in the North American version that are not available in the Japanese version of the game."
"We are excited to launch KINGDOM HEARTS in North America, which combines the magic of Disney and game development expertise of Square in one adventurous game," said Jan Smith, president of Disney Interactive. "This innovative new game will be a unique experience for both Disney and Square fans alike."
