Kingdom Hearts is coming to PC as an Epic Store exclusive

4.2
The Kingdom Hearts series, which began on the PlayStation 2 in 2002, is finally coming to PC. During its showcase today, Epic Games ran a trailer for the Kingdom Hearts series, coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store in March.

The release, set for March 30th, includes the following games:

Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind DLC ($60)
Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue ($60)
Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory ($60)
Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 Remix ($50)



If you find those names confusing, you're not alone. That's kinda Kingdom Hearts' thing, so I'll break it down. Kingdom Hearts 3 is the latest mainline game in the series, released in early 2019. It was a long, long wait after Kingdom Hearts 2, which came out way back in 2005. In the intervening years there were a bunch of Kingdom Hearts spin-offs and re-releases, several of which are contained here. Melody of Memory is the most recent: It's a rhythm game, recently released on consoles in November 2020.

Now it gets a bit more confusing. HD I.5 + II.5 Remix actually includes a bunch of games:

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
Kingdom Hearts RE:coded


Several of those are HD ports of games that first appeared on handheld consoles. Finally, there's HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which includes three pieces that were meant to lead up to the release of Kingdom Hearts 3.

Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, a movie
Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep - A Fragmentary passage, a one-off episode


All the games will be available on the Epic Store on March 30th. There's a series page on the store already, and the individual game pages list their system requirements. Here's the recommended specs to run Kingdom Hearts 3, the most demanding of the bunch.

OS: Windows 10
CPU: Intel Core i5 7500 (3.4GHz), AMD Ryzen 3 3100 (3.1GHz)
RAM: 8GB
Storage: 75GB
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1070 (8GB), Radeon RX Vega 56 (8GB)
