Kingdom Hearts 3 Has Been The Bestselling PS4 Game in January
It’s no surprise that Kingdom Hearts 3 has been the bestselling PS4 game in January since it was the most sought-after game of 2019. Nonetheless, the game is fascinating, and the Kingdom Hearts franchise has many fans.
“Nearly eight years after Kingdom Hearts II went live, the sequel took another six years to come to light, but the wait is over. Kingdom Hearts III is real and ready to light a fire under fans better than a well-timed Firaga,” said Comicbook’s Megan Peters in her Kingdom Hearts 3 review.
“To say Kingdom Hearts III has plenty to live up to would be putting it lightly. Its prolonged development period pushed fans to rally behind its release, and support for Sora has reached an all-time high. The hype for the game would mean one serious fall from grace should Kingdom Hearts III disappoint, but the game lives up to those expectations and then some,” she added.
