Square Enix and Disney must not like making money, as after announcing that the Kingdom Hearts remasters would be making their way onto Xbox One this year, they’ve just unceremoniously dumped them on the Xbox Store.
Xbox One owners can now play through the entire Kingdom Hearts series, with Kingdom Hearts III‘s Re Mind DLC also set to launch on the console in a week’s time.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX have been bundled together on Xbox One. Priced at £39.99/$49.99, they include Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded. Complete with Xbox One X support, we think they’re worth forking out for, even though Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded are just cinematics.
Also available, with Xbox One X support, is Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Priced at £47.99/$59.99, it includes Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage –, and the movie Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover. Compared to the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 & 2.5 ReMIX bundle, we don’t think it offers great value for money, so you might want to wait for it to go on sale.
Of course, these prices are in line with the digital releases on the PlayStation store, but physical PS4 copies can be picked up much cheaper. The Story So Far, for example, which includes Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5, 2.5 ReMIX and 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue can be purchased for just £14.17 on Amazon UK. Additionally, the All-in-One package that also includes Kingdom Hearts III can be pre-ordered via Amazon US for just $49.99. Strangely, though, it doesn’t seem to include the Re Mind DLC. All-In-One indeed.
In related news, it has just been announced that Kingdom Hearts III is set to join Xbox Game Pass this month, so if you haven’t played it yet and are a subscriber, look forward to that. If you want to enjoy the new Re Mind DLC, however, which launches on Xbox One on February 25th, you’ll have to buy it for £24.99/$29.99.
