The Kingdom Hearts universe (キングダム ハーツ, Kingdom Hearts) refers to the Smash Bros. series' collection of characters, stages, and properties that hail from the action role-playing game (ARPG) franchise created by Square Enix (formerly Squaresoft) in collaboration with Disney, the official owner of the franchise. The series primarily centers around the adventures of Sora, who travels across various worlds themed after properties owned by Disney and its subsidiaries while stopping schemes plotted by both original antagonists and Disney villains. Since the release of its first installment in 2002, the franchise has been one of the best-selling action RPG series in the world and is most notable for its crossing-over of Disney properties with various Square Enix properties, such as Final Fantasy. Alongside Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts is considered a flagship franchise for Square Enix.
The origins of Kingdom Hearts can be traced back to conversations between Squaresoft executive Shinji Hashimoto and Final Fantasy series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi in the late 1990s. The developer was in a financially unstable position at the time and needed a blockbuster success to save them from going bankrupt. The two bemoaned about Square needing a game like Super Mario 64, but realizing only a company like Disney has characters that could rival the popularity of Mario. Final Fantasy character designer Tetsuya Nomura overheard these conversations and volunteered to create this project. By a stroke of luck, Square and Disney of Japan shared an office building at the time. Hashimoto would have a chance encounter with a Disney executive in an elevator which allowed him to pitch the concept of using Disney properties in this game, which was eventually approved in 2000.
It was eventually decided that the game would be a crossover title with Disney and Final Fantasy characters interacting with original characters, however contention arose when settling on the game's premise and direction. The lead protagonist was undecided between the two companies, so Nomura created an original character, Sora, to serve as the protagonist instead. Disney approved the concept on the condition that all original characters, settings, and assets would be fully owned by them. The storyline and narrative would be helmed by Nomura, marking his debut as a director and lead writer, and it was originally planned to be a simple narrative meant to appeal to Disney's core audience. However after a meeting with Sakaguchi, Nomura elevated the storyline to better appeal to Final Fantasy fans. The game eventually morphed into Kingdom Hearts, which released for the PlayStation 2 on March 28, 2002.
The game was a critical and financial success both in Japan and internationally, eventually becoming the tenth best-selling game on the system. The release outside of Japan is notable for having content that was not in the initial release due to time constraints. The game received a Director's Cut re-released in Japan with this new content along with more content made specifically for this version, titled Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix. This started a trend of games getting the Final Mix treatment, with most of them being exclusive to Japan for years. Due to the success of the first game’s sales, the real time aerial action RPG battle system of Kingdom Hearts became the main basis for some modern Final Fantasy games, particularly the arena fighting game spin-off series Dissidia Final Fantasy, and Final Fantasy XV. Similar aerial combat scenes are also shown in the animated spin-off follow up movie to Final Fantasy VII, Advent Children.
A sequel was immediately put into production. To tide fans over, an interquel was co-developed by Jupiter for the Game Boy Advance in 2004 titled Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. The game experimented by having a card-based combat system that has been referenced but never replicated. Unlike other side projects, Chain of Memories is integral to the overall plot and is directly referenced in future installments. The game was fully remade in 2007 for PlayStation 2, titled Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, and this version has been re-released ever since.
Another side project for Verizon mobile phones titled Kingdom Hearts V CAST released in 2004. It is not considered canon and is one of the few entries not developed by Square Enix. The game can no longer be legally purchased after the shut down of the Verizon V CAST in 2012.
The proper sequel, Kingdom Hearts II, released on PlayStation 2 in 2005. The game picks up right after the events of Chain of Memories left off and received praise for improving on the first game in many ways. A Final Mix version was released in 2007 with new content.
Another mobile game was released in 2008 titled Kingdom Hearts coded. This game was released episodically over a year and exists to explain plot holes in Kingdom Hearts II. All episodes were later combined and released on Nintendo DS in 2011, titled Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. A web browser game tie in titled Kingdom Hearts Re:coded Gummiship Studio released as a studio to make a Gummi Ship. Around the same time, a mobile domain titled Kingdom Hearts Mobile was released and contained all episodes of coded as well as ringtones, wallpapers, and minigames.
A proper console release came in 2009 with Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (pronounced Three-Five-Eight Days Over Two). The game is based on the adventures of Roxas parallel to the events of Chain of Memories and explains plot holes in several games. A tie in web browser game titled Kingdom Hearts Magical Puzzle Clash released as a minigame collection.
A prequel entry titled Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep released on PlayStation Portable in 2010. Based on the adventures of Aqua, Terra, and Ventus, the game is set ten years before the events of the first game and explains plot mysteries that have persisted since the beginning. This game received the Final Mix treatment in 2011.
An entry for Nintendo 3DS titled Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance in 2012 and was the first game since Kingdom Hearts II to properly advance the story. The game was remastered as Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD in 2017.
In 2013, a web browser game titled Kingdom Hearts χ (pronounced key) was released as a prequel to every game released prior. The game was fully remade for mobile devices in 2015 titled Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, which was renamed in 2017 to Kingdom Hearts Union χ (pronounced Union Cross). A companion game was released in 2020, titled Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road, that explains the origin of several characters. The games have since been shut down, but the cutscenes in theatre mode are still available to download.
In addition to Kingdom Hearts χ, 2013 brought forth to light the beginning of compiling the series in HD remaster collections. Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, and remade cutscenes of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days were compiled on PlayStation 3 as Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. In 2014, HD remasters of Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep: Final Mix, and remade cutscenes of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded were also collected on PlayStation 3 as Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX. In 2017, both collections were remastered again and combined on PlayStation 4 as Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX; the same year. Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD, an abbreviated cinematic adaptation of Kingdom Hearts χ titled Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover and an original entry titled Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- were collected on PlayStation 4 as Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. The two collections were then placed into another collection for the PlayStation 4 as one called Kingdom Hearts The Story So Far.
All the way back in 2013, a teaser trailer for Kingdom Hearts III was revealed to be in development, with Nomura admitting the game was announced to the public far too early. Development progress was slow and steady, as Nomura was also directing Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake. Sporadic updates occurred for many years afterward until it was finally released in early 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This game's story marked the end to the Dark Seeker Saga, which had been going on since the first game. Also in 2019, Kingdom Hearts VR Experience released exclusively on PlayStation VR as a walking simulator of various worlds. The series's first official piece downloadable content was released roughly one year later as Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind, which explains plot elements in the base game, reintroduces elements seen in Final Mixes, and opens the door to a brand new story arc for the franchise. Kingdom Hearts III would later be bundled with everything seen in the The Story So Far bundle and released as Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Package.
A rhythm game released in 2020 titled Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. It is also the first game in the series to appear on a Nintendo console since Dream Drop Distance eight years prior.
The Kingdom Hearts franchise also comprises several other media, including soundtracks, several different series of manga and light novels, Ultimania novels and a canceled television series.

One of many wildly popular worlds in the Disney and Pixar universe/metaverse, Kingdom Hearts (and the character of Sora) grabs the hearts and minds of countless fans around the globe. But with the wide cast of characters in the KH realm, some fans are asking questions about the ownership of the world, as well as at least one of the main characters, a male character named Sora. Two big questions have been swirling around the internet of late. The first is, “Does Disney own Kingdom Hearts?” And the second usually goes, “Does Disney own Sora?” You’re in luck! We have the answers to both questions right here.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article misrepresented Sora’s involvement with Final Fantasy. The character of Sora first appeared in Kingdom Hearts.
What Is Kingdom Hearts?
Kingdom Hearts is a VERY interesting property, because it’s not just ONE THING.
It’s actually a TON of different things that all come together and wrap up in a universe of Disney and video game characters.
The official Kingdom Hearts Fandom page puts it like this:
“Kingdom Hearts [is a] game series, a crossover between Final Fantasy and Disney properties, developed and published by Square Enix.”Kingdom Hearts Wiki on Fandom
So you can see right away that, with Final Fantasy involved…
This is not a simple product of Disney characters in a world together (which would already be a lot!).
In fact, the Kingdom Hearts world spans even outside of console and mobile gaming, to include:
- Books, novels, and manga
- Popular soundtrack music
- Collectible merchandise
- And even a potential TV series on Disney Plus
Much of this is thanks, in large part, to the creator and designer Tetsuya Nomura at Square Enix.
To add a little more clarity, here’s how Wikipedia describes the Kingdom Hearts franchise:
“Kingdom Hearts is a crossover of various Disney properties based in an original fictional universe. The series centers on the main character, Sora, and his journey and experiences with various Disney and Pixar characters, as well as some from Square Enix properties, as Final Fantasy, The World Ends With You and Einhänder characters, in addition to original characters and locations created specifically for the series. The primary plotline of the series sees the protagonists clash against the multiple incarnations of Xehanort, the primary antagonist.”Wikipedia
So, that’s the world of Kingdom Hearts in a brief nutshell.
Now, let’s get into the questions of the day!
Does Disney Own Sora?
With all these properties interacting and coexisting in the same gaming and storytelling universe/world…
You can see how quickly it might get tricky to sort it all out from an IP perspective.
Especially when you’ve got two big companies like Disney and Square Enix involved.
Remember, we’re talking about Mickey Mouse and Final Fantasy, here!
These are two of the biggest properties in the history of media / multimedia.
In other words, who actually owns all these characters?
Does Disney own Kingdom Hearts? Does Square Enix own Kingdom Hearts? Does Disney own the character Sora, or does Square Enix?
These (and others like them!) are the main hot topic questions that fans around the world are asking right now.
Here are the answers to these two burning questions…
Does Disney own Kingdom Hearts? Yes, Disney owns Kingdom Hearts. According to former Disney VP of Production John Vignocchi: “A lot of people are confused about who exactly owns Kingdom Hearts, but it’s Disney — it’s developed in partnership with Square-Enix.”
So, here’s the definitive answer: Disney owns Kingdom Hearts — 100%.
OK, so that’s one answer out of the way…
But what about Sora? Who owns the character Sora, with connections to Final Fantasy? Is Sora owned by Disney or Square Enix or Nintendo, or another company altogether?
Here’s the answer to that one, too…
Does Disney own Sora? Yes, it appears that the character of Sora is owned by Disney, who owns Kingdom Hearts, even though the gaming company Square Enix develops the characters and gameplay for Kingdom Hearts (KH).
Because he is attached to Final Fantasy (FF), which is developed and owned by Square Enix, that company also has access to the intellectual property (IP) for development purposes in partnerships with The Walt Disney Company.
(Here’s a KH/FF forum post with various references to dig into more.)
According to the Final Fantasy Fandom page:
“Sora is a minor character in World of Final Fantasy. He is a Grymoirian incarnation of Sora originating from the Kingdom Hearts series and is the sole character representative of that franchise.
Sora does not make an appearance in the game’s main storyline, but was temporarily available as a summonable Champion as free downloadable content with the update patch to version 1.03. Sora is unavailable in the standalone Maxima versions, however.
In the Japanese version, Miyu Irino voiced Sora for his summon sequence. However, the English version doesn’t have any dialogue.”Final Fantasy Wiki via Fandom
More Sora Ownership Confusion?
Now, this seems to create even more confusion between Kingdom Hearts and Sora…
But it doesn’t have to!
There’s a very good explanation for all of it, actually.
Here’s how it all works out for Disney, Square Enix, Nintendo, and others with regard to the ownership of Kingdom Hearts and Sora:
How can Nintendo use Sora from Kingdom Hearts in Super Smash Bros.? Nintendo can use the character of Sora of Kingdom Hearts in Super Smash Bros. partnership with Disney/Square Enix, without owning Sora outright.
Nintendo owns Super Smash Bros, and Disney owns Kingdom Hearts.
Disney owns Sora (and partners with Square Enix to develop his character and the game).
But they can both use him in their games by partnering with Square Enix to do so!
Hopefully that answers all your burning Sora and Kingdom Hearts questions.
If not, let me know on Twitter @disfordisney_.
Have a magical day!

Main article: List of Kingdom Hearts media
- Kingdom Hearts is the first game in the series, released in Japan on March 28, 2002 for PlayStation 2. Tetsuya Nomura served as game director, his first time in this position. Kingdom Hearts introduced the main characters (Sora, Kairi and Riku) of the series, and established the plot's framework involving hearts and dark beings known as the Heartless. It also established the role of Disney characters in the series, with character cameos from the Final Fantasy series.

It was released on the Game Boy Advance in Japan on November 11, 2004.Chain of Memories was touted as a bridge between the two PlayStation 2 titles, introducing and previewing plot elements that would be explored in the next game. The gameplay system is a departure from the original and employs card game mechanics in real time. Players construct decks out of cards that correspond to different actions in battle, such as attacking or using magic. It was remade into a PlayStation 2 game titled Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, which contains polygonal graphics instead of the sprites used in the original game. The remake was released in Japan as a second disc packaged with Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix on March 29, 2007, and in North America as a standalone title on December 2, 2008.
- Kingdom Hearts II takes place one year after the events of Chain of Memories. It was released for the PlayStation 2 in Japan on December 22, 2005.

Though Kingdom Hearts III was the end of the "Dark Seeker Saga" which revolved around Xehanort, it had been decided where certain characters end up in order to potentially continue their stories in future games. In January 2020, Nomura said there would need to be "more time" before the next main entry in the series. Additionally, he revealed that there were two new development teams, separate from those that worked on the Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind DLC and the Union χ/Dark Road team, working on Kingdom Hearts content. In September 2020, Nomura stated that the development team was "in the process of discussing our future plans within Square Enix and with Disney and nothing has been set in stone, but I do have some concepts percolating in my head." He added that Yozora would "definitely... be involved" in the future of the series, in an unexpected and surprising way.
Disney and Square Enix characters
Further information: Characters of Kingdom Hearts
Kingdom Hearts features a mixture of familiar Disney and Square Enix characters, as well as several new characters designed and created by Nomura. In addition to original locations, the Kingdom Hearts series features many worlds from Disney films. Sora must visit these worlds and interact with various Disney characters to protect them from enemies. Often, his actions in these worlds closely follow the storylines of their respective Disney films. The main characters try not to interfere with the affairs of other worlds, as it could negatively affect the universe's order. Various Final Fantasy characters also make appearances within several worlds throughout the series. This includes Moogles, small creatures who are another common element in the games. They provide the player with a synthesis shop in order to create and purchase items used in the game. The main cast from The World Ends with You also makes an appearance in the series in Dream Drop Distance, and Kingdom Hearts III features characters from Pixar films such as the Toy Story series and Monsters, Inc., as well as Schwarzgeist, one of the bosses from Einhänder. Nevertheless, the usage of Disney characters is not without restrictions. For example, Nomura had requested the use of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in Kingdom Hearts III, but the response from Disney was that the character would be "too difficult" to use, with no further clarification or details from Disney.
The series starts with Kingdom Hearts, where a 14-year-old boy named Sora is separated from his friends Riku and Kairi when their home Destiny Islands is consumed in darkness. At that moment Sora obtained a weapon called the Keyblade that allows him to fight the Heartless, creatures that originate from the Realm of Darkness, before ending up in another world, Traverse Town, where he meets Donald Duck and Goofy, two emissaries from Disney Castle sent to find the Keyblade wielder under orders from their missing king, Mickey Mouse. As the three band together and travel to save various worlds from the Heartless while searching for their companions, encounter a group of Disney villains whose ability to control the Heartless was given to them by Maleficent, who enlists Riku's aid in seeking seven maidens called the Princesses of Heart whose power would open the way to Kingdom Hearts, the heart of all worlds. Though eventually defeating Maleficent and reunited with Kairi after sacrificing himself to restore her heart to her body, Sora learns that Maleficent was manipulated by a sentient Heartless who possesses Riku and claims himself as the Heartless researcher Ansem. Though Sora defeats Ansem, he is forced to trap Riku and Mickey in the Realm of Darkness after sealing the door and resolute to find them while Kairi remains at the Destiny Islands for their return. Sometime after his first visit to Hollow Bastion, Sora meets and is challenged by a powerful unknown figure (Xemnas). After winning the fight, the figure disappears while Sora continues on his journey.
In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Sora's search for Riku and Mickey leads his group to Castle Oblivion, a fortress controlled by a mysterious group of non-existent "Nobodies" called Organization XIII, the castle's overseer Marluxia using the power of a girl named Naminé to alter the group's memories for his agenda. After Marluxia's defeat, the three are placed in a year-long sleep by Naminé to restore their original memories while losing their experience in Castle Oblivion. At the same time Sora ventured through Castle Oblivion, Riku ended up in the basement levels and ascends to the ground floor with Mickey's aid while dealing with a Replica of himself that fought Sora. Finding the comatose Sora while joining forces with the mysterious DiZ, Riku helps Naminé keep his friend safe until he is awoken. In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, a snag in the plan over the year forces Riku to capture Roxas—Sora's Nobody and Organization XIII member that came into being when Sora briefly became a Heartless in the first game-after he was forced to defeat and absorb Xion, a Replica of Sora in Kairi's image.
In Kingdom Hearts II, after Roxas was integrated back into him, an awakened Sora and his friends resume their search for Riku and King Mickey, the latter's mentor Yen Sid re-familiarizing the trio with the Nobodies and Organization XIII's remaining members whom they deal alongside Maleficent and her right hand Pete. The three reunite with King Mickey and encounter Organization XIII's leader Xemnas, him and the Heartless Ansem revealed to the splintered halves of the real Ansem's apprentice Xehanort. The Organization's plan is also revealed: regaining their lost hearts by using Keyblade users to create an artificial Kingdom Hearts from slain Emblem Heartless. Axel, a rogue Organization member who is Roxas' friend and first encountered Sora in Castle Oblivion, abducts Kairi in an attempt to see Roxas. But Axel's action only give Saix, his former friend and Xemnas' enforcer, leverage to force Sora into finishing what Roxas and Xion began. Axel sacrifices himself to help Sora's group reach The World That Never Was (Organization XIII's headquarters) and, after defeating Xemnas's right hand Xigbar, reunite with Riku and Kairi. DiZ, revealed to be the real Ansem, attempts dissipating some of the artificial Kingdom Hearts before being engulfed in an explosion when his extraction device self-destructs and is sent to the Realm of Darkness. Sora and his friends then battle Xemnas. After Sora and Riku defeat Xemnas, they get trapped in the Realm of Darkness, but a letter from Kairi summons a gateway for them, and the two are reunited with their friends at their home. Sometime after his first adventure in Disney Castle, Sora discovered a portal at Disney Castle, and ventured through it to find a mysterious armour referred to as 'Lingering Will'. During their exchange, it mistook Sora for Xehanort, after which Sora fought the mysterious armour. Sora won the battle, and the Lingering Will merely knelt down after this, saying that he once felt the power Sora possessed.
Sometime later after the events of the game, Sora, Riku, and Kairi receive a letter from King Mickey. The letter, written by Mickey during the events of Kingdom Hearts Coded, describes the parts of their past that Naminé learned while restoring Sora's memory. As they read the letter, they learn of Xehanort's true identity as a Keyblade Master who sought the secrets of the Keyblade War which created their current reality and the fates that befall the apprentices of his friend Eraqus during the events of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep: Terra having ended up possessed by Xehanort and made into the original being of Xehanort's Heartless and Xemnas were split from; Ventus sacrificing his heart by fighting his dark counterpart Vanitas while to prevent Xehanort from recreating the legendary χ-blade which allows the user to control Kingdom Hearts and hiding within four-year-old Sora's heart; and new Keyblade Master Aqua trapped within the Realm of Darkness while an amnesic Xehanort ended up Ansem's apprentice alongside his accomplice Braig (Xigbar's original self). King Mickey also discovers that the destruction of "Ansem" and Xemnas has led to Xehanort's restoration. To combat the new threat Xehanort poses, Sora and Riku take an exam to attain the Mark of Mastery that will allow them to become Keyblade Masters themselves.
During the test in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Sora and Riku enter the Realm of Sleep where they encounter a young version of Xehanort who can travel through time. The two Keyblade wielders also learn how Xehanort has long manipulated events since Birth by Sleep with Organization XIII's true purpose in providing thirteens vessels for him to inhabit and use against seven hearts of pure light in an ultimate battle to recreate the χ-blade. But Sora's interference forced Xehanort to retrieve his alternate selves, Marluxia, Larxene, Demyx, Luxord, Vantias, and Xion from across time in Replica bodies to form his ideal Organization XIII with Xigbar, Saix, and Vexen. Sora is narrowly saved from being Xehanort's final vessel with the aid of Lea (Axel's original self) and Riku learns about data that Ansem the Wise had implanted within Sora during his year-long sleep, which may be used to save those connected to Sora. At the end of the exam, Riku is declared a Keyblade Master; in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Sora embarks on another journey to regain his "Power of Waking" while Riku helps Mickey find Aqua, Yen Sid training Kairi and Lea so they can help in the final battle against Xehanort and keep him from the Princesses of Heart.
In Kingdom Hearts III, Sora regains his "Power of Waking" in his group's travels while Riku and Mickey retrace Aqua's steps to find her and Terra. Sora later discovers Eraqus's Keyblade on the beach and uses it to open a door to the Realm of Darkness, finding Aqua who has been consumed by darkness after Ansem was abducted by Xehanort's Heartless. Once Aqua is purified by Sora and Riku, she leads them to Castle Oblivion which she restores to its true form as the Land of Departure to revive Ventus despite Vanitas' interference. The group are joined by Kairi and Lea as they face Xehanort and his followers, with a Riku Replica completing the group, at the Keyblade Graveyard. After initially losing the fight, Sora once again uses the "Power of Waking" to restore the guardians and call upon the "Lingering Will" armour, to assist in the fight. Afterwards it is revealed that Saix and Vexen sabotaged the Organization's plan by restoring Roxas as Sora's group manage to defeat all of Xehanort's remaining selves while freeing Xion and Terra from his control. Xehanort kills Kairi to force Sora to manifest the χ-blade, revealing his true plan is to use the true Kingdom Hearts to wipe the slate on reality clean before finally being defeated. Xehanort departs with Eraqus's spirit into the light as Sora closes Kingdom Hearts. Sora also sacrifices himself by using the "Power of Waking" once more to revive Kairi. Sometime later, all the guardians, including their close friends and allies, celebrate victory at Destiny Islands. But Xigbar, revealed to be the current incarnation of the ancient Keyblade Master Luxu from the time of the Keyblade War, summons the Foretellers, his fellow Keyblade Masters, to the present for the next phase of his mission. A year later, all attempts to find a clue to Sora's current whereabouts have proven to be futile until Riku and Kairi, with the help of the Fairy Godmother, find clues that lead them to believe that Sora has been transported outside of their reality. Riku embarks on a search for him after opening a portal to another reality in the Final World. Elsewhere, Sora meets Yozora, a supposedly fictional character from a video game. During their exchange Yozora claims that he is tasked to "save Sora" and the world is transported into Shibuya. Sora is challenged to a fight by Yozora, whom he defeats. Yozora fades away as Sora returns to The Final World. Both Sora and Yozora wonder if their meeting was real, with neither character making sense of it.
The Kingdom Hearts games contain elements of actionrole-playing video games with hack-and-slash elements. The games are driven by a linear progression from one story event to the next, usually shown in the form of a cutscene, though there are numerous side quests available that provide bonus benefits to the characters. In most games, the player primarily controls the principal protagonist of the series, Sora. Sora is usually accompanied by Donald Duck and Goofy, who are artificial intelligence-controllednon-playable characters that aid Sora in battle. In the first and third game, their behavior can be altered to suit different combat objectives. The games feature real-time combat that incorporates physical attacks, magic, and summonings, though each game handles battles differently. The game also allows for items to be used on the field of battle to heal oneself or one's party members.
Gummi Ships are another common element of the series, which serve as the main mode of transportation between worlds in the games. The gameplay for the Gummi Ship sections is more akin to a rail shooter. Because it received negative criticism in the first game, it was modified in the third title. Most games also feature a journal which is accessible from the main menu. This journal keeps track of information regarding the story, characters, enemies, and locations. In Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts III, the journal is kept by Jiminy Cricket, who was appointed by Queen Minnie as the royal chronicler. In 358/2 Days, Birth by Sleep and Dream Drop Distance, the main characters write their own journal entries.
The games are influenced by their parent franchise, Final Fantasy, and carry its gameplay elements over into their own action-based, hack-and-slash system. Like many traditional role-playing games, Kingdom Hearts features an experience point system which determines character development. As enemies are defeated, the player gains experience which culminates in a "level-up", where the characters grow stronger and gain access to new abilities. The amount of experience is shared with all party members and each character grows stronger as experience is gained.
Further information: Music of Kingdom Hearts
The music for the series has been primarily composed by Yoko Shimomura. Kaoru Wada works as the arranger for orchestral music, including orchestral renditions of the main vocal themes and the ending themes. The orchestral music was performed by the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. Soundtracks were released for the first and third installments following the release of their respective games. A compilation soundtrack was later released that included soundtracks for the entire series, including reworked tracks for the re-released Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.
While the themes for some of the Disney-based worlds are taken directly from their Disney film counterparts, most of them are given entirely original musical scores. In addition to each world having unique background music, each is given its own battle theme rather than having a common theme to cover all fights. Several of the main characters have themes, and the final boss of each game has several themes played in the various phases of those fights. The fights with Sephiroth feature a modified version of Nobuo Uematsu's "One-Winged Angel" from Final Fantasy VII.
The main theme songs for the Kingdom Hearts games were written and performed by Japanese pop star, Hikaru Utada. The three main themes are "Hikari", originally from Kingdom Hearts, "Passion", from Kingdom Hearts II, and "Oath" from Kingdom Hearts III. Each song has an English counterpart, "Simple and Clean", "Sanctuary", and "Don't Think Twice" respectively, for the North American and European releases. Utada was the only singer Tetsuya Nomura had in mind for the first Kingdom Hearts theme song. This marked the first time Utada had produced a song for a video game. Both of the first two theme songs reached notable popularity; on weekly Oricon charts, "Hikari" reached No. 1 in 2002 and "Passion" reached No. 4 in 2005.
The initial idea for Kingdom Hearts began with a discussion between Shinji Hashimoto and Hironobu Sakaguchi about Super Mario 64. They were planning to make a game with freedom of movement in three dimensions like Super Mario 64 but lamented that only characters as popular as Disney's could rival a Mario game. Tetsuya Nomura, overhearing their conversation, volunteered to lead the project and the two producers agreed to let him direct. A chance meeting between Hashimoto and a Disney executive in an elevator—Square and Disney had previously worked in the same building in Japan—allowed Hashimoto to pitch the idea directly to Disney. Development began in February 2000 with Nomura as director and Hashimoto as producer. While Nomura had done previous work in the Final Fantasy series as monster designer and graphic director, he did not gain widespread recognition until he was the lead character designer for Final Fantasy VII. Kingdom Hearts marked his transition into a directorial position, though he also served as the game's character designer. Scenarios were provided by Kazushige Nojima who was a scenario writer for Square from Final Fantasy VII until he left in 2003. Originally the development focused on the gameplay with a simple story to appeal to Disney's target age range. After Kingdom Hearts executive producer Hironobu Sakaguchi told Nomura the game would be a failure if it did not aim for the same level as the Final Fantasy series, he began to develop the story further. In June 2013, Nomura stated the name of the game came from him thinking about Disney Theme Parks, especially Animal Kingdom. However, Nomura could not get the IP with just "Kingdom", so the development team began to think about "heart" as a core part of the story, so they decided to combine the two to form "Kingdom Hearts".
Nomura placed a secret trailer in Kingdom Hearts in hopes that fans would want a sequel. He was unsure if fans would want a sequel and felt that if they did not, then it would be best to leave certain events in the first game unexplained. After Kingdom Hearts Final Mix was completed, development for Kingdom Hearts II began. There were several obstacles to clear before development could begin on a sequel. One was the development team's desire to showcase Mickey Mouse more; Mickey's inclusion in the first game was restricted to a very small role. Nomura had planned for the sequel to take place a year after the first and originally intended for the events of that year to be left unexplained. To bridge the gap between the two games, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories was developed. Nomura was hesitant about releasing a game on the Game Boy Advance because he felt the 3D graphics of the original game would not translate well into 2D. He changed his position after hearing that children wanted to play Kingdom Hearts on the handheld system.
Creation and design
Though Disney gave Nomura freedom in the characters and worlds used for the games, he and his staff tried to stay within the established roles of characters and boundaries of the worlds. Nomura has stated that though many of the Disney characters are not normally dark and serious, there were not many challenges making them so for the story and despite this, their personalities shine because they maintain their own characteristics. He also felt managing and keeping multiple worlds was problematic. When deciding which worlds to include in the game, the development staff tried to take into account worlds with Disney characters that would be interesting and made an effort to minimize any overlap in the overall look and feel of each world.
The inclusion of specific Final Fantasy characters was based on the opinions of both fans and staff. Another criterion for inclusion was whether the staff felt the characters would fit into the storyline and in the Kingdom Hearts universe. Initially, Nomura was hesitant to use characters he did not design, because he was unfamiliar with the backstory of such characters. For Kingdom Hearts II, he changed his mind after receiving pressure from his staff. Throughout the development of the games, Nomura has often left certain events and connections between characters unexplained until the release of future games. Nomura does this because he feels that games should have room for fans to speculate and use their imagination. He has stated that with speculation, even though a game gets old, people can still be happy with it.
The first Kingdom Hearts was announced at E3 in May 2001. Initial details were that it would be a collaboration between Square and Disney Interactive, and would feature worlds developed by both companies and Disney characters. New characters were designed by Nomura and include Sora, Riku, Kairi, and the Heartless. On May 14, 2002, a press release announced a list of the English voice actors. The list included Haley Joel Osment, David Gallagher, and Hayden Panettiere as the three new characters introduced into the game. It was also announced that many of the Disney characters would be voiced by the official voice actors from their respective Disney films.
A secret trailer in the first Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix hinted at the possibility of a sequel. Rumors for a sequel on the PlayStation 2 were spurred in Japan when a Japanese video game site, Quiter, stated that "an internal (and anonymous) source at Square Japan" confirmed that development of Kingdom Hearts II had begun. It was not until Kingdom Hearts II was announced, along with Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, at the Tokyo Game Show in September 2003 that rumors were confirmed. Initial details were that it would take place some time after Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, which takes place directly after the first game. Other details included the return of Sora, Donald, and Goofy, as well as new costumes. At the 2004 Square Enix E3 press conference, the producer, Shinji Hashimoto, stated that many mysteries of the first game would be answered.
To help market the games, websites were set up for each game and demos were on display at gaming events. Each game in the main series was also re-released in Japan with additional content and served as canonical updates to the series. The additional content foreshadowed later plot elements in the series. The rereleases of the main series games had the term "Final Mix" added after the title, while Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Coded were re-released as Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and released on the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS, respectively, with 3D graphics, voice overs during some cutscenes, and new game content.
The Kingdom Hearts series has been critically and commercially successful. As of March 2014, the series has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. The three main games in the series all met with positive sales at the time of their releases. In the first two months since the North American release of Kingdom Hearts, it was one of the top three highest-selling video games.Chain of Memories sold 104,000 units in 48 hours in Japan, a record for a Game Boy Advance title at the time. Its positive debut sales placed it in the top spot of sales charts in Japan. In the first month of its North American release, it was ranked 1st on GameSpot's ChartSpot for portable systems and 6th for all consoles. Within three days of the Kingdom Hearts II release in Japan, it shipped 1 million copies, selling through within a month. By the end of March 2006, the NPD Group reported that Kingdom Hearts II was the highest-selling console game in North America, with 614,000 copies. In the month after its release in North America, Kingdom Hearts II sold an estimated 1 million copies. As of February 2019, the Kingdom Hearts series has shipped more than 30 million copies worldwide. This number reached to 32 million copies shipped by June 2019.
The games have also received high ratings and positive comments from reviewers. All of the main games in the series have scored a 36 out of 40 or higher from the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, known for its harsh grading. All six games have been praised for their visuals. Game Informer considers the series the eleventh "must-play PlayStation 2" series. The individual games have also won several awards. GameSpot commented that the concept of mixing the serious elements of Final Fantasy with the lighter elements of Disney seemed impossible, but was pulled off quite well. Because of that they awarded Kingdom Hearts "Best Crossover Since Capcom vs. SNK" in their 2002 Best and Worst of the Year awards.IGN named Kingdom Hearts "Best Art Style/Direction" in their 2003 list of "Best Looking Games on PS2".G4 awarded it "Best Story" at their 2003 G-Phoria awards show.Electronic Gaming Monthly awarded Kingdom Hearts II "Best Sequel" of 2006. It tied with Resident Evil 4 as Famitsu's Game of the Year 2005. The manga series has also been well received. Several of the manga volumes were listed on USA Today's "Top 150 best sellers". The highest ranked volume was Kingdom Hearts volume 4 at #73. Every volume listed stayed on the list for at least two weeks; Kingdom Hearts volume 4 stayed the longest at four weeks.
Both Square Enix and Disney have released a wide variety of Kingdom Hearts merchandise including toys, figurines, clothing, and jewelry. Two of the games, Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II, had a soundtrack released to coincide with the video games. These were followed by a nine CD complete set which featured both soundtracks and unreleased tracks.Kingdom Hearts has been adapted as a trading card game by the Tomy corporation of Japan. An English version of the game was released in November 2007 by Fantasy Flight Games. The video games have also been adapted into manga and novel series.
Like the Final Fantasy games, a series of "Ultimania" books were released in Japan for many of the games. These books include game walkthroughs, interviews, and extra information from the developers. Kingdom Hearts -Another Report- was released along with Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ and features game information, visuals by Shiro Amano, and a director interview. In North America, Brady Games released strategy guides for each game. For Kingdom Hearts II, they released two versions, a standard version and a limited edition version. The limited edition was available in four different covers and included a copy of Jiminy's Journal along with 400 stickers.
Sora has made guest appearances in other video games, including World of Final Fantasy and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
A manga based on the Kingdom Hearts storyline has been released in Japan and the United States. The story and art are done by Shiro Amano, who is also known for his manga adaptation of the Legend of Mana video game. The story follows the events that took place in the video games with differences to account for the loss of interactivity a video game provides. The manga was originally serialized in Japan by Square Enix's Monthly Shōnen Gangan and eventually released in tankōbon format. The first tankōbon was released in Japan in October 2003. The manga was released in the US by Tokyopop two years later in October 2005. Yen Press now holds the rights to publish the books for the USA market. The first series, Kingdom Hearts, consists of four volumes, while the second series, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, has two volumes. The third series, Kingdom Hearts II, has ten volumes total, taking a hiatus to publish a fourth series based on Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days which has five volumes total, after which Kingdom Hearts II resumed. As of April 2019, a fifth series based on Kingdom Hearts III has been serialised monthly in Gangan Online with Amano returning to do story and artwork. Yen Press also licensed the series and published it online in English on apps such as Comixology and BookWalker alongside the Japanese release. This series will soon have two volumes published in tankōbon format.
The games have also been adapted as a light novel series, written by Tomoco Kanemaki and illustrated by Shiro Amano. Like the manga series, it is divided into separate series based on the games. Kingdom Hearts is divided into two volumes; "The First Door" and "Darkness Within".Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories is divided into two volumes. Kingdom Hearts II is divided into four volumes; "Roxas—Seven Days", "The Destruction of Hollow Bastion", "Tears of Nobody", and "Anthem—Meet Again/Axel Last Stand".
On May 27, 2020, It was reported that a TV series based on the franchise was in development for Disney+.

|This article is about the castle.|
You may be looking for the town.
Disney Castle is a world introduced in Kingdom Hearts. It is surrounded by Disney Town, and contains a portal to its past form, Timeless River. It is the home of King Mickey, Queen Minnie, Daisy, Donald, Goofy, and the other classic animated characters created by Walt Disney. As such, Disney Castle is considered to represent Disney's short films and cartoons, although that role would later be shared with Timeless River. Disney Castle's design is derived from the real-world Magic Kingdom, which is in turn based upon "Cinderella Castle".
In Kingdom Hearts, Disney Castle first appeared during the opening and closing scenes. It was unplayable, although visible throughout the game on the Gummi Map screen to the left of Traverse Town.
In Kingdom Hearts II, Disney Castle took on a more active role when the barrier protecting Disney Castle, the Cornerstone of Light, was corrupted by Maleficent and the world was invaded by the Heartless. This brought Disney Castle's attention to Sora and his friends, who rescued the castle with the help of Queen Minnie and the inhabitants of Timeless River.
In Kingdom Hearts coded, Disney Castle appears in cutscenes. In coded, Mickey and Jiminy discover a message in Jiminy's Journal that says "We must free them from their torment" and create a data version of Sora.
In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts III, Disney Castle also appears in cutscenes.
Disney Castle was shown as a playable world in an early trailer for Kingdom Hearts, but was removed from the finished game.
Settings and Areas
Though Disney Castle shows the palace and Disney Town on the World Map, exploration is limited to only within the castle, in almost all places that had been seen in the first game. King Mickey and Queen Minnie and other members of the royal organization hold meetings in the Audience Chamber (謁見室, Ekken-shitsu?). Hidden below Mickey's throne is another room called the Hall of the Cornerstone (礎の間, Ishizue no Ma?) where the Cornerstone of Light is kept safe.
In the Audience Chamber, there are statues of Donald and Goofy in full regalia, or their ancestors, and in the Library, there are two portraits of Mickey's ancestors. The Audience Chamber also contains a sculpture resembling the Kingdom Hearts logo. On the desk in the library there is a photo of King Mickey and Queen Minnie in their normal Disney clothes.
Below the castle is the Gummi Hangar (格納庫, Kakunōko?, lit. "Hangar"), a room for storing and maintaining the Gummi Ship, controlled by Chip and Dale. This room is accessed by entering a castle-like arrangement of foliage in the courtyard, several of the hedges in the Courtyard are patterned after the band players from The Band Concert, one of them bearing a resemblance to Horace Horsecollar. Sora and his party later enter Disney Castle through this room when they visit in Kingdom Hearts II.
Other places to be explored include the Library (書斎, Shosai?, lit. "Study"), where Donald, Minnie, Daisy, and Goofy first read the letter from King Mickey about the danger of the universe. Minnie, Daisy, and a broom servant can also be seen here anytime after Sora saves the castle from Maleficent after returning from Timeless River. The Courtyard (中庭, Nakaniwa?) is the place where Donald catches Goofy napping, and where Queen Minnie and Daisy ask Donald to explain things in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts. The Colonnade (廊下, Rōka?, lit. "Corridor") in the castle connects the Courtyard to the rest of the castle.
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
The interior of the castle is used as part of the Castle Circuit racing track in the Rumble Racing competitions hosted in Disney Town.
Donald Duck walks into the Audience Chamber to wish King Mickey a good morning, but is shocked to find him missing. Pluto comes out from behind Mickey's throne and gives Donald a letter from the absent King. King Mickey states in the letter that he has left to try and figure out why stars have been blinking out all over the world and he tells Donald and Goofy to find "someone with a key" and stick with him. Mickey tells them to begin their quest by going to Traverse Town and asking Leon for help. Donald and Goofy are ordered by Queen Minnie to find the "Key" and the King. Jiminy Cricket is assigned by the Queen to become their royal chronicler. As they are leaving the world, Pluto jumps on the Gummi Ship to follow them. Donald and Goofy begin their journey from here on.
Following the defeat of Ansem, Huey, Dewey, and Louie return to Disney Castle after the order of the worlds is restored.
Kingdom Hearts II
When Pete and Maleficent attempt to defile the Cornerstone and try to take over the castle by going back to the past to alter the present, Sora visits the castle for the first time and he protects Queen Minnie. Eventually, he goes to Timeless River, a past version of Disney Castle before it was built, with Donald and Goofy to stop Pete from destroying the Cornerstone. The Keyblade Graveyard, where Sora fights the Lingering Will, is also accessible via the Hall of the Cornerstone. Some time after Xemnas's defeat, Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Scrooge McDuck, Pluto, Huey, Dewey, and Louie all return to Disney Castle.
Kingdom Hearts coded
Not long after returning to the castle, Jiminy Cricket re-organizes his journal and finds a mysterious message, which is later digitized by King Mickey to create a Sora out of data in hopes of discovering when the entry was added by reliving the moment. King Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Jiminy and Pete are sucked into the data world of Disney Castle. Meanwhile, in the real Disney Castle, Chip and Dale finds a way to contact them. When the data world is completely debugged and erased, they are sent back to the real Disney Castle, where King Mickey writes a letter to Sora about his findings (Terra, Aqua and Ven) and sends it to him in a bottle.
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
Maleficent and Pete return to Disney Castle, take Minnie hostage and summon Mickey, Donald and Goofy to speak with them. Maleficent demands access to the Data Worlds once again, but Mickey refuses. As Maleficent attacks them, Lea arrives and stops her, rescuing Minnie from Pete in the process. Maleficent and Pete take their leave, while Mickey, Lea, Donald and Goofy return to the Mysterious Tower.
Kingdom Hearts III
Throughout Sora's journey, Chip and Dale contact and give him information from the Gummiphone in the library in Disney Castle.
Following Master Xehanort's defeat, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy reunite with Minnie, Daisy, and Pluto at Disney Castle. After Yen Sid, Chip, and Dale arrive, the group watches fireworks high above the Castle. Sora, Kairi, and Chirithy are also present, enjoying the celebration.
