With how stealthily they were snuck onto the Xbox Store back in February, you might not be aware that both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue are now available on Xbox One.
Even better, until the end of next Tuesday, they’re available dirt cheap, too.
At launch, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue were overpriced on Xbox One at £39.99/$49.99 and £47.99/$49.99 respectively. In comparison, PS4 owners can get a physical copy The Story So Far for a fraction of their combined price on Amazon. Thanks to Deals With Gold, however, Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can pick the games up with a huge discount.
With a whopping 4000 Gamerscore, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX is a steal at £15.99/$19.99, while with just 2000 Gamerscore Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is less impressive but still worth picking up for £15.83/$19.79. For Xbox One owners looking for an entry point in the series, this is it. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX offers the ultimate versions of both mainline entries in the series, allowing you to roll into Kingdom Hearts 3 with a good idea of what’s happening. You should play them all, however, if you want the full picture.
