When Does Kingdom Hearts Release on PC? Price, Gameplay, How to Download

One of the most successful gaming franchise in recent memory finally makes its debut on computer this week, as Kingdom Hearts is released in PC format.

Launched two decades ago, the franchise is a crossover between members of the Disney family such as Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck and characters of Japanese RPG series Final Fantasy.

From Nintendo to PlayStation and from GameBoy to PSP, the franchise became a cult series across different consoles but had been unavailable to PC gamers up until now.

The PC version lands on March 30 and will feature all 11 Kingdom Hearts games—including remastered versions of the original games—split in four separate titles.

Here's all you need to know about the release.

Kingdom Hearts PC release date

Kingdom Hearts comes to PC on Tuesday and all four games will be available to download from the Epic Games Store from March 30.

How to download Kingdom Hearts for PC

Kingdom Hearts will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC and won't be available on Steam. Prices for the four games will vary between $49.99 and $59.99, with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX on sale at $49.99, while Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory will cost $59.99 each.

Which games are included?

All 11 entries of the Kingdom Hearts franchise will be available to download but will be split in four different chapters, loosely organized in chronological order.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX will include Kingdom Hearts Final Mix—a remaster of the original Kingdom Hearts game released in 2002—and Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories—a remake of the original Game Boy Advance game.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered Cinematics) and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix—the sequel to Kingdom Hearts—as well as Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded (HD Remastered Cinematics).

The former is a remake of the 2010 PSP game, while the latter was originally a mobile-only game.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue includes Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD—a remaster of the 2012 3DS game—along with Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage.

The remaining two games are Kingdom Hearts III + ReMind and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. The former is the third chapter of the Kingdom Hearts saga, while the latter is a so-called rhythm game, which draws on the series' popular soundtrack.
