10 strange facts about the Kingdom Hearts franchise

We've unearthed the following 10 strange facts about the franchise

Kingdom Hearts has a weird obsession with the number "13"

Remember that awful Jim Carrey movie where he kept seeing the number "21" everywhere? Kingdom Hearts does the same thing with the number "13." In multiple instances throughout the series, "13" keeps popping up all over the place, and a lot of these examples are downright mind-blowing. Don't believe us?

Well, let's start the most obvious. Kingdom Hearts' main group of bad guys is called "Organization XIII," made up of the 13 members. "Kingdom Hearts" has 13 letters in the title. In the opening sequence of the first Kingdom Hearts, the "M" in the title zooms towards the screen - and M is the 13th letter in the alphabet. Still not convinced? Add up the sum of the number of letters in the names of the main trio - Sora, Kairi, and Riku. It's thirteen. Remember the Ultima Weapon from Kingdom Hearts II? Guess how many Orichalcum+ you need to create it. Thirteen. How many worlds are in Kingdom Hearts, KH2, and Birth By Sleep? THIRTEEN.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
