Kingdom Hearts Series

News covering the general Kingdom Hearts series, including merchandise and other miscellany.

Square-Enix announced earlier today that cloud versions of 'Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX', 'Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue', and Kingdom Hearts III' (with the ReMind DLC) will all be released next month on February 10th! These titles can be purchased individually or by purchasing an all-in-one package called the Integrum Masterpiece. Additionally, those who either purchase the Integrum Masterpiece or 'Kingdom Hearts III' individually will get an exclusive keyblade in 'Kingdom Hearts III' called the Advent Red Keyblade:

One of the announcements made last week as part of the Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary celebration was the release of the entire series on the Nintendo Switch via cloud versions. While many would've preferred a native copy of these ports, series producer Ichiro Hazama is aware of this, as he discussed the possibility with Nintendo Life. Check out the short interview below:
Following the exciting reveal of Sora's addition to 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate', Square-Enix revealed plans for the 20th anniversary of the series:


As the above video shows:
  • Cloud versions of 'Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD ReMix', 'Kingsom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue', and 'Kingdom Hearts III' (with the ReMind DLC included) are coming soon to the Nintendo Switch!
  • Multiple merchandise to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series!
  • The rest of the 'Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road' story (up to the ending!) will be released this winter in one go!
  • A Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary Event will be taking place! More details to come at a later date.
After many requests for his addition into the crossover fighting game 'Super Smah Bros. Ultimate' for the Nintendo Switch, Sora has finally been revealed as the game's final DLC character! In addition to his inclusion, a new stage will also be added to the game based on Hollow Bastion from KH1, and can transform into a Station of Awakening! While Sora's default look is based on his KH1 appearance, he will also have alternate looks based on his KH2, KH3D, KH3, Valor Form, Wisdom Form, Ultimate Form, and Timeless River appearances. He will be available for purchase on October 18 for $5.99! Check out the reveal trailer below:

Small but very cool update: we now have cutscenes from Melody of Memory without subtitles available for download.

This was made possible by a member of the KH modding community, Vladabdf, who was able to rip video files directly from the game. He's currently contributing to OpenKH, a project that aims to expand the community's knowledge of how the Kingdom Hearts games run, and make modding them more streamlined. Check out his Twitter and YouTube. If you have any programming knowledge and an interest in the project, I'm sure they'd appreciate some help.

Peace!
