Kingdom Hearts : PlayStation 2 Description
Anything is possible in this game featuring over 100 Disney characters. You have to see this to believe it. The world of a young boy, Sora (voiced by a young Haley Joel Osment), is destroyed by a violent storm and he is separated from his closest friends. At the same time, there is turmoil in the Disney castle as King Mickey is missing. Court Wizard Donald and Captain Goofy set off to find King Mickey and meet up with Sora. They must save their world from the Heartless, beings without hearts from an unknown dimension. Great Disney animation, over 100 Disney characters from Pooh, to Goofy, to Tarzan, Mulan, Snow White, Peter Pan, Ariel, Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Bambi, and lots more.
Created with the support of two multimedia entertainment powerhouses, Kingdom Hearts provides a new adventure with some familiar faces. This 3D action-oriented role-playing title from developers at Square features popular Disney characters like Donald Duck and Goofy adventuring alongside more conventional Final Fantasy-styled heroes.
Tetsuya Nomura, who designed several of the characters in earlier Final Fantasy titles, supervised this game's development. In addition to the well-established Donald and Goofy, Kingdom Hearts introduces several new characters to the Disney universe.
The heroes must embark on a long and dangerous quest to rescue lost friends. Players guide thier characters through sleepy city streets and mysterious torch-lit tombs, facing clever enemies and large boss characters. Most of the action is played out in real-time. Though it features characters often associated with children's programs, Kingdom Hearts is designed to offer a thoughtful, serious role-playing adventure for gamers of all ages.
