New tips Kingdom Hearts: A speedrunner tries a completely crazy trophy hunt

It’s a major challenge that a German speedrunner has just set himself by setting himself an absurd goal combining both speedrunning and trophy hunting. And it does not make it easy when you know that his choice is on the vast universe of Kingdom Hearts.

Seven games, seven platinums, in seven days


Kingdom Hearts is a well-known franchise for fans of action-RPG type video games. Developed and published by Square Enix, this series is the result of an association between the Japanese studio and Disney Interactive Studios, the whole being headed by Tetsuya Nomura. A universe as rich as it is extensive that the German streamer and speedrunner named “desa” has chosen to launch a masterful challenge. Indeed, at the beginning of the week, on August 7 exactly, the latter has decided to try to win seven platinum trophies, corresponding to the seven games of the main series reissued and released on PlayStation 4, and this as quickly as possible. These are precisely the following titles:

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep 0.2
  • Kingdom Hearts 3

And the challenge does not stop there since “desa” is fixed seven days to do soan average of one platinum per day.

An ambitious challenge

By estimating around 20 to 30 hours to complete each episode in a straight line, that is to say by just following the main story, it is therefore not necessary no less than 115 hours to complete the set. Knowing that seven days equal 168 hours, the margin is not very high. In addition, trophy hunters will agree that it is not enough to complete the game to obtain the precious platinum. Most often, other trophies, called annexes, require you to perform very specific actions or collect objects, for example, which can quickly become very time-consuming.

According to his posts on Twitter, since the speedrunner started his challenge, it went platinum for Kingdom Hearts Final Mix in 11 hours and for the episode titled Re: Chain of Memories in less than 20 hoursnot without encountering a few hiccups on the rest of the program and having lost a few hours. Final result to follow by August 15th…

If the idea seems completely crazy, it’s also an original way to wait before getting your hands on the next opus. Moreover, if Kingdom Hearts IV was announced as being in development on the occasion of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the franchise, it is not expected immediately and remains no less mysterious.
