Kingdom Hearts 3
Fans have been waiting a long, long time for Kingdom Hearts 3, so it’s no surprise that it’s the most popular JRPG of 2019 so far. The game saw a strong reception at launch, garnering an 83 on Metacritic, based on over 80 official reviews.
To make matters even better, though, the game has an 8.3 user rating with over a whopping 1400 scores. Kingdom Hearts 3’s success isn’t just based on scores, however, oh no. The latest game broke a sales record for the franchise, becoming the fastest-selling Kingdom Hearts game in history, with over 5 million copies just over a week after launch.
We haven’t seen any more numbers since then, but that number has surely gone up, and with Critical Mode and other free DLC coming, Kingdom Hearts 3 is bound to sell even more by the end of the year. It’s amazing to think that only one month into 2019 we already had a strong candidate for best RPG of 2019.
