If you are a fan of the Kingdom Hearts franchise then you may want to take some time out to participate in a brand new survey from Square Enix regarding the series. It shouldn’t take too long to complete and is a good way to make your voice be heard over at Square Enix, as we haven’t had a new Kingdom Hearts game on the Nintendo 3DS for a while. Here’s the link to the short survey.
Square Enix has released on online survey to gauge fan feedback on the popular Kingdom Hearts franchise. The survey asks what platforms gamers are playing on and which genre’s people prefer.
