The latest in the Kingdom Hearts series is Kingdom Hearts 3 which released on consoles in early 2019, mixing a number Disney worlds including Frozen, Toy Story and more. This was quite the wait as the previous title Kingdom Hearts 2 came out in 2005. However, in between those two games were a number of spin-off titles and re-releases.
Both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix ($49.99) contain multiple games:
- Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD remastered cinematics)
- Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD remastered cinematics)
While the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (59.99) includes these titles:
- Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
- Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A fragmentary passage –
- Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (movie)
Kingdom Hearts 3 and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory are priced at $59.99 on PC.
The Kingdom Hearts franchise is quite a long-running one, that has become rather complex with each game. After experiencing Kingdom Hearts 3 for myself, and jumping into the entanglement of plot lines, I would highly suggest either playing the previous games in the series or at least finding a good rundown video if you decided to play the most recent game.
