As part of a larger Square Enix sale on the platform, Epic Games Store has revealed that the entire Kingdom Hearts series is currently discounted on its service. There are 4 Kingdom Hearts items in the store, but it can be daunting for newcomers to know what precisely each package contains.
I wrote a piece detailing the best way newcomers can get into this franchise, but if you just want a brief rundown of what each package has, that is provided below.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX is 25% off and should be the first purchase from any prospective fan. It contains the following:
- Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, the director’s cut of the first title in the series.
- Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, a remake of the GBA title taking place right after Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days HD Remastered Cinematics, a cutscene version of the DS title that takes place alongside Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
- Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the title taking place the aforementioned 3 ones
- Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, a prequel taking place 10 years prior to Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Re:coded HD Remastered Cinematics, a cutscene version of the DS title taking place after Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is 25% off and contains the following:
- Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, the game taking place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
- Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage –, best summated as the prologue to Kingdom Hearts III
- Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, an hour-long movie covering some events from the browser and mobile games from a different perspective (don’t stress out over it)
Kingdom Hearts III + Re Mind is 25% off. This package contains the base game and the Re Mind DLC, which adds a plethora of content, such as 14 challenging boss battles and a story episode taking place after the base game’s ending.
Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory is 40% off. This is a rhythm game taking place after Kingdom Hearts III that only contains a light (heh) amount of story.
