Because the first game wasn't horrible enough,
the new game will have an official single so we can enjoy Kingdom Hearts
II even when we are not playing.
A strange grouping of friends indeed.
Kingdom Hearts II Re-hires Hit Singer for Theme Song
OK, so I know that people in all walks of life
swear by Kingdom Hearts. I'm going to respectfully disagree regarding
the quality of the game. First, the game was preposterously easy. To be
fair, I became so insanely bored part way through I didn't finish it. A
friend assures me it has one of the hardest final bosses ever, but even
with that, the game stunk.
Next, the cut scenes were vast and propagandist. They bored me before I even had control of the character. Also, I was concerned by the repeated idea that we had to "restore the world order" and "trust the king." Lest I seem alarmist, I will mention the cut scene where Alice is held captive and the characters want to save her, but Goofy, representing the "dumb" one, says in an incredulous and obviously petulantly childish voice "But we can't interfere!" Add that onto the release date of the game, and we have propaganda.
When I heard they were making a Kingdom Hearts II, I decided not
to be surprised (after all, they made a Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigolo
sequel), but just accept the media for what it was. But now, according to
Enix announced today that bilingual Japanese vocalist Hikaru Utada will
sing the Kingdom Hearts II theme song, titled "Passion." For the
original Kingdom Hearts released in 2002, Utada sang the theme
song "Hikari" in two versions, one in English and one in Japanese."
a website devoted to the game and its upcoming sequel, rumored to come out
this winter, posted excitedly about the the Square-Enix Party 2005, which
began in Tokyo. So, obviously I am just cynical and this seems not at all
lame to most people.
And there will also be a single, for those of you who want to hear the Kingdom
Hearts II theme song in your car, on your I pod, or just anywhere.
Do they have no sense of humor, or just a really good one?
Stay tuned for updates.
