From the very first game in the series, Final Fantasy played an important role with the inclusion of characters such as Cloud and Sephiroth. Although the use of Final Fantasy characters in Kingdom Hearts has been scaled back, there’s no reason why they couldn’t celebrate.
This came about thanks to a special image on the official Kingdom Hearts Japan Twitter, which you can see above. This is similar to them honoring the 20th anniversary with a photo of Sora in front of Merlin tower as seen below in a tweet from this date in 2017.
It’s become a tradition for Kingdom Hearts to help celebrate Final Fantasy VII’s release date, so it will be interesting to see what they have in store for the 30th anniversary and beyond!
