The Game’s Opening is Already a Music Video, But Okay
Hikaru Utada and Skrillex’s opening song for Kingdom Hearts 3 has received an official music video that shows off a ton of the game’s shiny cutscenes and gameplay. Spoilers inside.
The video features the Japanese version of Face My Fears and a ton of game footage that ultimately looks like a fan-made FMV. It likely is, as Skrillex is an admitted fan of the series – I would not be at all shocked to learn that he edited it himself. Be careful though, as someone whose already finished the game, I was shocked to see some decent spoilers in it.
As a single, the song has been seeing quite a bit of success, being Hikaru Utada’s first ever song on the US Billboard Top 100 at #98, and hitting #1 on the World Digital Song Sales according to Nielson music.
The game itself hasn’t been doing too bad either, hitting over 600,000 sales in Japan alone in its first week.
