The 'Kingdom Hearts' series is finally coming to PC this March
Nineteen years after the first game launched, Square Enix is finally releasing a huge selection of Kingdom Hearts games on the PC.
Eleven Kingdom Hearts games are coming to PC for the first time ever on March 30, 2021, exclusive to the Epic Games Store.
As shared by Square Enix during the Epic Games Store Spring Showcase 2021, PC gamers will now be able to join Sora, Donald and Goofy to play through two classic Kingdom Hearts collections along with the critically-acclaimed Kingdom Hearts III + Re Mind (DLC) and recently released rhythm-action title Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, all together delivering hundreds of hours of content across 11 magical experiences that make up “the Dark Seeker Saga.”
Kingdom Hearts is an RPG game that fuses the worlds of Disney, Final Fantasy and Square Enix titles together in a fight against the Heartless. Square Enix originally launched the first Kingdom Hearts game for the PlayStation 2 back on March 28, 2002. Previously, the series has been mostly exlusive to PlayStation consoles with some spinoff games being released for Nintendo and Mobile.
“It is truly a great pleasure to bring so many Kingdom Hearts adventures to PC gamers around the world,” said producer Ichiro Hazama in a press statement.
“Our collaboration with Epic Games is one that stretches back to the development of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and as part of this ongoing relationship, the team at Epic Games have been incredibly supportive in helping us make this a reality. I’m incredibly excited for so many new players to discover and enjoy the action, magic and friendship of Kingdom Hearts on PC,” he added.
This release marks the first time Square Enix’s crossover role-playing series has appeared on PC. Titles are currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is also available on the Nintendo Switch.
