The Kingdom Hearts series will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, as the original PlayStation 2 game was released on March 28, 2002 in Japan. As part of that, Square Enix has announced a special Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary event for April 10, 2022 in Tokyo, and video will be made available later. The event will feature a mini-concert playing some iconic Kingdom Hearts songs, a Q&A session with the developers, an “exhibition,” and more. Hopefully, there will be some exciting video game announcements as well, as the ending of Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory left fans asking questions about the series’s future.

In the meantime, Square Enix has confirmed the release date for the cloud versions of the mainline Kingdom Hearts titles on Nintendo Switch, which are scheduled to launch on February 10, 2022. The pricing for these versions is quite high in multiple regions, with online reactions leaning more towards the negative side. However, if you preorder any of them, you will receive a 20% discount.
2022 has the potential to be an excellent celebration of the Kingdom Hearts series, so hopefully, the 20th anniversary event in April delivers some exciting news for fans. Are you looking forward to celebrating the 20th anniversary of Kingdom Hearts with whatever happens at this Tokyo event? Square Enix has plenty of other content cooking right now as well, including Triangle Strategy on Nintendo Switch.
