Kingdom Hearts

15 years ago on this very day the first game in the Kingdom Hearts series made its way to North America. In Japan, it released earlier that year on March 28, so the wait was agonizing for those looking forward to Square Enix’s Disney and Final Fantasy crossover title. Few knew how big of a hit the series would become, as it’s still going strong a decade and a half after it debuted.

To celebrate this occasion, we’re taking an updated look back at the best and worst Kingdom Hearts games. Will the original title, that debuted 15 years ago in North America, be able to take the top honors?

Before we get onto the list, here are a few things to consider. First off, only games released on PlayStation systems were considered for ranking. So that means no mobile offerings. Second, and most importantly, there wasn’t some mathematical formula to come up with this list. It’s all just a matter of opinion.

Check our our ranking of the Kingdom Hearts series below:

We hope you enjoyed our look back at the Kingdom Hearts series on PlayStation on this . It wasn’t easy to decide which game took top honors, as each entry in the series has its own merits!
