It’s been 14 years since Kingdom Hearts II debuted on PlayStation 2, and while there have been several spinoffs and related games released in that timeframe, fans have been clamoring for the conclusion to the main trilogy since, well, the second one ended. Sure, there were handheld iterations that helped to fill in the blanks for the series’ oft-confusing story, but those did little more than act as a Band-Aid to make the wait for the newest game feel somewhat less like an eternity.
Kingdom Hearts III is the final entry in the main trilogy, and follows Sora, Donald, and Goofy on their quest throughout various Disney worlds, such as Tangled’s Kingdom of Corona, Toy Story’s Toy Box, Monsters, Inc.’s Monstropolis. Why are they there in the first place, you ask? Oh, goodness us, we aren’t going to spoil any of that after you’ve been waiting so long to play.
As you can imagine, the elation, the excitement, and the memes are deep. Some folks are just happy they’ve finally got the game. Others are making us laugh so hard, we’re spitting out our sea salt ice cream.

Played Kingdom Hearts for 3 hours last night on the midnight release, and had to wake up at 5:30 this morning….
By some miracle, I’m not dead yet.

Even Sonic the Hedgehog‘s social media team is congratulating the Kingdom Hearts team on the game’s huge launch. It’s big news, after all.
