The words “Kingdom Hearts” alone instill nostalgia deep within me. The series really does bring back to my childhood and I hope to never forget getting the original Kingdom Hearts for Christmas as a young teenager.
I think the series coming to PC is incredible. In my opinion, it’s never a bad thing when an exclusive comes to other consoles and platforms. Doing so allows other people to experience that game and enjoy it without having to buy a platform that they originally wouldn’t have. Although, I certainly don’t regret buying a PS4 so I was able to enjoy the incredible story that was Red Dead Redemption 2.
When is it Coming and Where?
The Kingdom Hearts series is coming to PC on March 30th, 2021.
As of right now, it is only coming to the Epic Game Store. I can’t seem to find any information as to whether this is a permanent exclusive or just a timed exclusive.
What Does it Include?
The Kingdom Hearts series is coming as 4 different installments.
- Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX
- Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
- Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind
- Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory
Much like previous releases, some of the games have multiple features and games. Listed is their content as shown on the Epic Game Store.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
- KINGDOM HEARTS Dream Drop Distance HD: A full-HD remaster. Sora and Riku take on the Mark of Mastery exam in preparation for their coming showdown with Master Xehanort.

- KINGDOM HEARTS 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage – : A brand new episode that links to KINGDOM HEARTS III.
Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind

I can honestly say I’m excited for this announcement. I recently replayed through 2.5 on my PS4 and loved the nostalgia blast. While I am a big fan of the series, I have put off playing Kingdom Hearts 3 fully, so this gives me no excuses to not finish the trilogy.
