After debuting on consoles nearly 20 years ago, Square Enix’s critically acclaimed action role-playing Disney crossover series, Kingdom Hearts, is finally coming to the PC. You won’t be able to play them on Steam, however, as Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 Remix, Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind, and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory are all exclusive to the Epic Games Store. The collection will be available to purchase on March 30.
“It is truly a great pleasure to bring so many KINGDOM HEARTS adventures to PC gamers around the world,” explained KINGDOM HEARTS series Producer Ichiro Hazama. “Our collaboration with Epic Games is one that stretches back to the development of KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and as part of this ongoing relationship, the team at Epic Games have been incredibly supportive in helping us make this a reality. I’m incredibly excited for so many new players to discover and enjoy the action, magic and friendship of KINGDOM HEARTS on PC.”
“For the uninitiated, the KINGDOM HEARTS series tells a story of light and friendship overcoming the power of darkness, where players travel to a multitude of beloved Disney and Pixar worlds. Throughout much of the series you’ll play as Sora, who is of course joined by Donald and Goofy, on this mission, though in certain titles you’ll play as other original KINGDOM HEARTS characters (not to mention various Disney characters, too).”
It isn’t clear when the Kingdom Hearts series might be released on Steam and other platforms, but here is an overview of the titles that will be available through the Epic Games Store. All of the games will be available for $59.99 aside from Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 Remix ($49.99), an HD remastered collection of six individual games.
