Every Kingdom Hearts title features a ton of Keyblades for players to collect and with Kingdom Hearts 3 being no different, we’ve outlined how to unlock one of the most exclusive ones ahead of the game’s official release.

Kingdom Hearts 3 promises to be one of the most expansive games in the series with many new locations to visit and, more importantly, new amazing looking Keyblades to unlock.

One of the newest Keyblades to enter the franchise, the Starlight Keyblade, can actually be unlocked before even picking up the game when it releases in just over two weeks.

Unlocking this exclusive Keyblade is actually quite simple, but it does require players to download and play the popular Kingdom Hearts Union X mobile game.

Don’t worry, however, as unlocking the Starlight Keyblade doesn’t take much time and can be done without spending a single cent on the game.

Kingdom Hearts Union X was released in 2015 and remains one of the most popular mobile games around.

After downloading the game on iOS or Android, all you need to do is play a set of minigames and tally high scores in each one by following these simple steps:

  • Go to the ‘[ex tres]’ section of the game (located under the “Other” menu)
  • Select ‘Classic Kingdom’
  • Here you will find the five minigames that must be played
  • Beat the high score on all five games
  • And that’s it!

After beating the final high score, simply head to the ‘Limited-Time Challenge’ tab under the [ex tres] menu and you will find a code for the Starlight Keyblade once it’s available.

There’s been no word on just when the code will actually pop up, but completing the above steps will allow you to unlock the Keyblade as soon as it does finally go live.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is set for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 29.

A new viral TikTok sweeping the internet is a near-perfect real-life portrayal of Kingdom Hearts’ main character, Sora.

The Kingdom Hearts series is arguably the most popular set of Disney video games to ever come out, and as a result, they’ve built up a legion of fans over the years.

Like any good fanbase, Kingdom Hearts enthusiasts aren’t afraid to poke a little fun at their favorite games, especially the unique animation styles some of the characters have.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is the latest game in the series.

Of course, Sora, as the game’s main protagonist, is the focus for most of fan’s jokes and memes about the game, and the latest viral Kingdom Hearts content is no different.

A new TikTok, set to the music of the game’s infamous ‘Tarzan’ jungle level, is making the rounds on Twitter – and it seems to be a perfect recreation of Sora’s animations.

Armed with his signature Keyblade and puffy red vest, the TikToker cosplaying as Sora struts into view, perfectly replicating the character’s bizarre gait.

In addition to walking (and running) around, the TikTok Sora also perfectly executes some attacks, with a little help from the magic of video editing, of course.

At the time of writing, the clip has more than 1 million views and over 100,000 likes on Twitter, and even more on TikTok, itself.

The responses are filled with players praising how accurate the TikToker’s walk was – and, of course, how much they hated the Kingdom Hearts jungle level.

One user said that “the walk was perfect,” and based on the number of favorites their reply received, plenty of people agreed with them.

Other users complained that  the music brought back bad memories of Kingdom Hearts’ infamous Tarzan level.

The original creator of the TikTok video himself, Cloudie McDoom, even appeared in the comments and thanked users for their support, so it might be worth checking him out for similar content.

In other Kingdom Hearts news, several of the games in the series are now finally available on XBox One with the “Kingdom Hearts Collection,” so even if you’ve been team Xbox all these years, you finally have the chance to play the series for yourself.
