The Kingdom Hearts series is coming to PC for the first time, exclusively via the Epic Games Store. That includes Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, 2.5 Remix, 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, 2019’s Kingdom Hearts 3, and 2020’s rhythm action spin-off Melody Of Memory. They’ll be released on March 30th, so not long to wait.
The Kingdom Hearts reveal was one of the announcements during the Epic Games Store Spring showcase. You can read all our coverage of that here. The showcase was marred by heavy compression artefacts on all trailers though, and at the time of writing seems to have been pulled offline. Presumably it’ll be back shortly.
Epic confirmed the news with a tweet that embedded the trailer, however.

The Kingdom Hearts series blends characters from across multiple Disney films with characters and storytelling by Square Enix. Think big spiky-haired anime heroes hanging out with Mickey, Goofy, and Olaf from Frozen, as per the image above. It also develops its own convoluted mythology over the series, like many JRPGs. That’s maybe obvious from the fact one of the games is called “2.8 Final Chapter Prologue”.
We’ll start scrambling around to cover these games in more detail soon.
