And now one of the most popular intellectual properties of the past couple decades appears to finally be getting the video game it deserves.

Kingdom Hearts fans know how to wait. They’ve probably played the waiting game for longer than they’ve played any of the Kingdom Hearts games, so these next few months until the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 should be a piece of cake after we’ve already waited 13 years. It’s fine. It’s totally fine.
But wait! Before you go crazy waiting for Kingdom Hearts 3 to hit shelves on January 25, 2019, the wait for any and all Kingdom Hearts content will be a tiny bit shorter thanks to a Kingdom Hearts VR experience debuting on the PlayStation VR this holiday season.

One of the best video game adaptations of all time is undoubtedly GoldenEye 64. The game took the first James Bond movie starring Pierce Brosnan and turned it into a polygonal first-person shooter that also gave us one of the most endlessly entertaining multiplayer experiences of any video game in history.
