Kingdom Hearts PC save files are tucked inside cute PNG images, because of course they are

Kingdom Hearts is renowned for its endearing but needlessly complex story, and apparently its eccentricities don’t stop there, extending even into its software design. As discovered by Reddit user PerhapsUnexpected, it appears that save files in Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix are stored inside a single PNG image. Seriously!

The internet sleuths found the strange 7MB image while digging through the files of the recently released Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX PC port. They were probably expecting to find a typical save file format like a .txt, but all they could find were two PNG images—one with Mickey Mouse ears called System Data and another with Sora’s face called Save Data. Confused, they tried opening the Sora image with a hex editor and found what appears to be their save data embedded inside the PNG’s metadata. Watch the discovery recorded by Perhaps below.
