Today on NOCLIP we’re going to be talking about Kingdom Hearts. As an Action RPG that largely defined the genre moving forward, this highly influential game mixed the worlds of Final Fantasy and Disney with some original concepts that miraculously ended up not being a horrible mess. As one of JJ and Andy’s favorite games, they have a lot to say while I (Chad) am mostly along for the ride. We go deep on how the combat feels, why you would ever use magic and how the aesthetic and story design work together to create a massively successful game that’s largely about tone.
Join us again in two weeks when we talk about Undertale!
