As of today, the Kingdom Hearts franchise has truly arrived on the Xbox One. Both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue are now officially available for Xbox One, bringing content from nine different Kingdom Hearts games to the platform. Other than the recent Re Mind DLC for Kingdom Hearts III, this brings Microsoft's console into parity with the PlayStation 4, and even that is set to be added before the end of the month.
This isn't exactly surprising, however, given that Xbox One store listings leaked earlier this month for the titles. Even so, it's a welcome addition, and now an entirely new group of folks can truly embrace the wild, convoluted world of Kingdom Hearts from beginning to end. It's not the recently announced all-in-one package, but it's not nothing either.
Just in case you're not familiar with the two compilation products, here are the games included in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix:
- KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX
- KINGDOM HEARTS Re:Chain of Memories
- KINGDOM HEARTS 358/2 Days (HD remastered cinematics)
- KINGDOM HEARTS II FINAL MIX
- KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX
- KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded (HD remastered cinematics)
And here are those included in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue:
- KINGDOM HEARTS Dream Drop Distance HD
- KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage –
- KINGDOM HEARTS χ Back Cover (movie)
