Kingdom Hearts 3 has finally been released after a decade from the last sequential chapter in the franchise, but Twitch streamer Sodapoppin might not be on board for the lightheartedness of its story and characters.

Square Enix has released its highly anticipated sequel on January 29, and while longtime fans of the games are infinitely pleased to finally play it, newcomers might be taken aback by the story and its mushiness.

During his playthrough of the game, Sodapoppin reached a cutscene where (no spoilers) Sora took a moment to appreciate his friends, like he usually does, but this proved to be too much for the streamer to take.

Throughout numerous instances in his playthrough, Soda had encountered moments in the game that bewildered him be it through the dialogue or the convoluted story.

If anything, Sodapoppin’s VODs are filled with hilarious moments of the streamer at the end of his wits because of the RPG.

After multiple hours of his painstaking playthrough, he finally decided to call it quits on the game. He apologized to Kingdom Hearts fans because he was decidedly done with the new release, and announced it would be his last time playing it.

“I’m done. I am done. GG. I cannot,” Sodapoppin said. “Not a bad game. [It’s] got some interesting mechanics, ish. But I don’t know what the fuck’s going on with this story, and I’m not gonna beat this game.”

The moment is a perfect way to cap off the misery he’s been through so far, and who knows if done the line Soda will come back to finish the story.

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.
