Turn Your Dark Console to Light

Square Enix has announced that they will be bringing all the past Kindom Hearts games collections to the Xbox One. That's a total of three collections with six games and three movies.

All the collections will hit the console in 2020. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix is a collection of collections, containing both of the "ReMix" versions of the games. In this group, you can play the original Kingdom Hearts, the weird Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories card game, the amazing sequel Kingdom Hearts II, and fan-favorite prequel game Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. There's also a pair of movies, with one covering the events of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and the other showing Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded.

 

As for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, it contains another two games and a movie. One of the games is a port of Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, which bridges 2 and 3. The other game is the vaguely Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-, a new game that served as a prologue chapter to Kingdom Hearts III. Finally, you get a movie called Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover, which covers the events of the mobile game.

In addition to this, Square Enix notes that a demo of Kingdom Hearts III is now available on all platforms. The demo lets you play the complete world based on Hercules and a chunk of the Toy Story world, which are the first two worlds of the game. You can transfer your demo save to the main game as well, so you can pick up where you left off when you're done. Additionally, the demo lets you watch a movie that sums up all the other games, so there's that too.

 

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue are currently both available on PlayStation 4. Both games will come to Xbox One in 2020.

Are you glad the Xbox platform is finally getting the full nonsense? Did I say the words "Kingdom Hearts" too many in this article? Do you understand the story at all? Let us know in the comments below!
