Kingdom Hearts or: How I Learned to Tolerate Those Yaoi Fans
Hosted by Oliver Surpless

Kingdom Hearts is a series that has had less than 7 games in a decade or so, yet is accused of being a franchise that milks its fans. Don’t think too hard about that criticism. That’s my job, seeing as this panel is hosted by a video game lover who is far too analytical for his own good. The topic is a little series that started off as with Mickey Mouse as the main character. Square didn’t seem to believe that original characters would help sell the game, but Disney was reluctant to commit their most famous character to a financially questionable product. Thankfully, this led to the tale of Sora, the kid with the Mickey Mouse shoes and a giant key for a weapon. Hmm, not much actually changed… Come by and let’s discuss how KH has evolved into one of the deepest and most complex stories in RPG’s. KH cosplayers welcome, but only if you know what the 13th Order is, the details of Another Side, Another Story (Deep Dive), or recognize the name Paul St. Peter… (just kidding!)
