Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia have announced the winners of the Playstation Awards 2019. Since Playstation's inception in 1994, these awards have been held annually to honor hit video game titles sold in the Playstation format.

Among this year's winners was Kingdom Hearts 3, which received the Platinum Prize for exceeding 1 million units sold in the Japan/Asia region! Kingdom Hearts Brand Manager Shinji Hashimoto and Executive Producer Ichiro Hazama received the award on the team's behalf.

Hashimoto thanks the staff and fans worldwide for making this possible. He comments that it is a great honor to be able to receive this award in the same year that Playstation celebrates their 25th anniversary. While it is customary for the director to receive the award at the ceremony, Tetsuya Nomura was unable to attend as he and the Osaka team are currently hard at work on the upcoming DLC. Hashimoto briefly discusses the series's history on Playstation, having begun as a new IP on the PS2, and how much it's grown over the years. The success of this collaboration between Disney and Square Enix could not have been made possible without everyone's support.

That's nice. Too bad Nomura wasn't there to personally accept the award
He was probably thrilled he didn't have to go. Nomura doesn't like making public appearances.

Ah nice. It's cool that KH won an award. And that in a major anniversary year. The game might be flawed, but it's still a lot of strong points and is a lot of fun to play.

And considering how Nomura is always being pulled in every which way, having to go to some award show would just be added stress.
