These ‘Memory Archives’ aim to set you up for Kingdom Hearts III

Settle down and I’ll tell you a tale

It’s a commonly-held belief that Square Enix Kingdom Hearts has one of the most convoluted stories in video games. A commonly-held belief, that is, because it’s entirely true. But fret not, because publishers Square Enix has dropped a series of videos, hoping to get new fans up and ready for Kingdom Hearts III.

The “Memory Archives” are a series of five videos designed to give new and old fans alike a refresher course on the events of previous games and the varied cast of characters that popular the Disney crossover universe. Literally only a few minutes in length each, they’re nothing if not abridged, but should at least get you started on the history of Sora, Kairi, the Keyblade, the Heartless, and that awful Little Mermaid section in Kingdom Hearts II.

Kingdom Hearts III launched last week in Japan on PS4 and Xbox One some six years after its initial E3 announcement. The highly-anticipated sequel hits shelves worldwide on January 29
