Kingdom Hearts (Japanese: キングダム ハーツ Kingudamu Hātsu) is a series of action role-playing games and a collaboration between Disney Interactive and Square Enix. The series was co-created by Shinji Hashimoto and Tetsuya Nomura, and was born through a chance meeting between Hashimoto and a Disney executive in an elevator, as both Squaresoft and Disney Interactive shared a building at that time. The Kingdom Hearts series is most well-known for its blending of traditional Japanese role-playing elements with characters and worlds from a large variety of Disney and Pixar properties, as well as for including said characters alongside those from the Final Fantasy series and The World Ends With You.
The series primarily focuses around a fourteen year-old boy named Sora, who is taken from his world of the Destiny Islands after it is engulfed in darkness, throwing him into a mecca for those without worlds known as Traverse Town and is separated from his friends Riku and Kairi in the process. Here he meets up with Donald Duck and Goofy, who are on their own journey to locate King Mickey, who too has disappeared from Disney Castle. From there, the trio get sucked into a battle between the light and darkness, centring around a man named Xehanort and his quest to acquire the legendary χ-blade and harness the power of Kingdom Hearts for his own ends.
