A little over a year ago Disney and Square(makers of the immensly popular "Final Fantasy" series)announced that they were teaming up to make a ground breaking title for the Playstation-2, which was still in developement at the time. Well, today comes additional information about the upcoming title, which is set to be called "Kingdom Hearts". "Kingdom Hearts is due out in Japan this fall and here in the U.S.A. by fall of 2002. With it's immersive environments(many of which we're familiar with)and rich movie-like graphics, KHs promises to be a whole heck of alot of fun. ``Kingdom Hearts'' is an epic story of adventure, heroism, teamwork and life's most important lessons. It is the story of Sora, a 15-year-old boy whose world is turned upside down when a violent storm crashes into his idyllic island-paradise home, and he is separated from those closest to him: his best friend Riku -- a 16-year-old boy -- and a young girl named Kairi. The storm's force scatters the friends to three different and unknown worlds. At the same time, there's turmoil in the world of the Disney Castle. King Mickey is missing and protectors Court Wizard Donald and Captain Goofy set out on a mission to find him. On their travels they meet Sora, who is on his own mission to search for his lost friends. The three are told of dark, ominous creatures known as the Heartless, beings without hearts derived from an unknown dimension and, as it turns out, the ones responsible for the devastating tornado. Imbued with the ability to morph and change their form, the Heartless' ultimate goal is to recruit the Disney Villains to help them steal the pure hearts and souls of others. Upon learning of the link between the Heartless, the storm and the disappearance of King Mickey, Sora, Donald and Goofy decide to join forces to recover Sora's friends, return the king to his rightful position and save the universe from the Heartless. On their adventures, they journey through a fantasy Disney Universe, where each land is its own unique world. The heroes visit many different worlds, including those of ``Disney's Aladdin,'' ``Disney's Tarzan(TM),'' ``Disney's Peter Pan'' and many more Disney and new, original worlds, where they interact with the characters of those worlds and battle their way across dimensions. More than two years in development, ``Kingdom Hearts'' has a production team of more than 100 people, representing the best creative talent from both Disney Interactive and Square. I'll keep you updated once the first previews come out.
