It's official and finally happening, the entire Kingdom Hearts franchise is coming to the PC platform. The entire series was once a console exclusive, but the critically acclaimed and fan favorite games will be coming to PC on March 30th as an Epic Games Store exclusive. At this point it is not known whether it is a timed exclusive and coming to Steam at a later date, or whether it's a full exclusive to the EGS.

Revealed at yesterday's Epic Games Store Spring Showcase, the entire Kingdom Hearts collection will include 4 games: 

If you're a big Kingdom Hearts fan, then you may be wondering: "hey, Game Debate, I thought there were way more games in the Kingdom Hearts franchise? There's only 4 listed there." And yes, you would be correct. There's a lot of Kingdom Hearts titles. Like... a lot a lot...

Yes there are. In fact, let's break down this very confusing situation. Some of the titles listed above actually include multiple titles within them as a sort of collection of games. It's mostly just the first two titles that are a little bit confusing in that regard, but here's a full breakdown:

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX includes:

  • KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories
  • KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days (HD Remastered cinematics)
  • KINGDOM HEARTS II FINAL MIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep Final MIX
  • KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded (HD Remastered cinematics)

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue includes:

  • KINGDOM HEARTS Dream Drop Distance HD: A full-HD remaster. Sora and Riku take on the Mark of Mastery exam in preparation for their coming showdown with Master Xehanort.
  • KINGDOM HEARTS χ Back Cover (movie): A new HD movie that tells the mysterious story of the Foretellers from the series’ origins
  • KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage – : A brand new episode that links to KINGDOM HEARTS III.

Kingdom Hearts 3 includes:

  • Re Mind (DLC)

Additionally, Square Enix have also provided the official PC system requirements for each game, some of which are a bit more demanding than you would expect from these games in all honesty. So without further ado, let's take a look at the Kingdom Hearts PC system requirements...

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX

Hmm, I still have no motivation to get into this series. Maybe if it goes on sale I'll bite. Also Epic still sucks.

ROFL at that price, I think I'll just sit this one out until I can get everything for 40 euros or less (maybe a steam release might rectify that) either way no freakin way I'm paying 200 euros for all that.

if it is only on Epic Games store, then it might as well still be on console.

Definitely interested in picking them up. I always wanted to give Kingdom Heaths a try, but never got a chance. So yeah, happy to see them porting it to PC. But dear lord, this is many games... I guess first step is stop being poor, second one is buy them all,... not sure about profits, but first step takes care of that. :-D Jokes aside, will need to decide where is best to start, I guess.

How nice, I've never played a single game from this franchise, but now is the time, the time to wait for Epic to put them all out for free, maybe by next Christmas?

As a fan trapped into the series since 2004, good luck for those who will grab it and enjoy it...
But if you managed to survive without it till 2021 just do yourself a BIG pleasure and stay miles AWAY from this, you won't get out of it so easily.

Nice, no regional pricing and more expensive by over 2 USD in my region. That's why multiple launchers and competition is good, because now there's only 1 terrible price.
