Kingdom Hearts 3 releases worldwide for Xbox One and PS4 on January 29, over 13 years after Kingdom Hearts 2. With such a huge gap, new players and seasoned fans alike are in desperate need of a refresher course on the lore surrounding the legendary Disney franchise.

Kingdom Hearts follows Sora, a teenager separated from his friends who obtains a weapon called the Keyblade. Recruited by Donald Duck and Goofy to aid King Mickey in their fight against evil nemesis Xehanort, Sora travels from world to world defeating enemies as he tries to locate his friends.

Kingdom Hearts tells the story of Sora.

For those who need to get to grips with the story of Kingdom Hearts, Twitch streamer Ludwig Ahgren has created a 53 second breakdown that will get you up to speed with the franchise on his Twitch channel on Thursday, January 24.

Ahgren explains how main villain Xehanort splits himself into two different versions before the beginning of Kingdom Hearts, with Sora battling the Heartless version in the first game, and then taking n the Nobody incarnation of the antagonist.

Xehanort is attempting to create the x-Blade in the hopes of turning himself into a god, with Sora set to face off against Xehanort once again in Kingdom Hearts 3, but this time the villain has been able to reunite both versions of himself, making this the toughest battle yet for our hero.

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.

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.
