Kingdom Hearts VR: “Magical” Series Moments Every Fan Needs

I love Kingdom Hearts. I love this series so much that Critical Mode is my default. I love it so much that I’ve bought jewel packs in KHUx. I love Kingdom Hearts so much that I could explain the plot to you before you could make another joke about it not making sense. So when I heard that Kingdom Hearts VR was happening, I wanted to rip my red shorts off and do a Trinity dance. Having played these games so many times, though, I couldn’t help but wonder what I could possibly do in a big doofy headset that I hadn’t had my fill of on a Dualshock. So I had to dig real deep. This is what I could come up with.

1. Have Donald not heal me.

This was an obvious choice. For once in my life, I want to actually see Donald’s Thundaga happen rather than hear him scream off screen as his MP drains with my hopeless HP.

2. Swim like an idiot (and sing about it!) in Atlantica

Who didn’t love running into walls and getting thrown around in all directions in KH1? Who didn’t ADORE the unwavering cringe of having all the game’s action stop to have a sing-a-long in KH2? I can’t wait to reevaluate my life choices in this world in VR.

3. Watch Goofy Die up close.

Part of the appeal of this franchise for me is how it can take me back to feeling like a kid again, which is why I’m really looking forward to watching one of my favorite Disney characters suffer a concussion so severe that it pushes Mickey and Donald over the edge into a depressed rage that results in dozens of Nobodies crushed in their wake. Oh yeah, and then Goofy doesn’t die.

4. Work summer jobs for days in Twilight Town

The best part of playing KH2, clearly, was when I popped it in my PS2 after weeks of saving my allowance and waiting in anticipation to push a cart up a hill with Roxas. I have to do that again, especially now that I have a full time job and all.

5. See my Faction to Vulpes on the Lux Leaderboards again

Having Unicornis come in second place on my phone screen is one thing. Having it blown up on an iPad is another. But man, if I don’t get to see the two factions twitch back and forth on the leaderboards before Vulpes inevitably takes the lead with double my faction’s Lux, can we even call it KH VR?

6. Stare into Johnny Depp’s weird, static eyes in Port Royal

Again, simpler times are what keeps us moving forward, and nowhere is that embodied more than in Kingdom Hearts. This is exactly why I want to go back to when I wasn’t aware of how terrible Johnny Depp is so that I can look at Jack

Sparrow’s sullen, unmoving eyes in 480p.

7. Get swarmed by bees in Twilight Town

I really thought about putting Pooh’s mini games on this list somewhere, but all I could think of was how much I wanted to bust my bumbles in Twilight Town. We all know that the best part of any game in the series was this swarm of bees, so it had to make the list.

Are there moments you would love to see in KH VR? Let me know! And remember, there’s no wAY YOU’RE TAKING KAIRI’S HEART.
