The Kingdom Hearts Franchise Is Coming To The Epic Games Store
The Epic Games Store Spring Showcase starts today, and there’s already been a big announcement: The entire Kingdom Hearts saga is coming to PC for the very first time. This means that, starting now, you can pre-purchase Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Kingdom Hearts III, and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 comes with a whopping six titles: Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (with HD Remastered cinematics), Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (with HD Remastered cinematics).
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue contains two games and one movie leading up to Kingdom Hearts III. Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep — a fragmentary passage — rounds out the playable experiences while the Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover movie tells the mysterious story of the Foretellers.
Kingdom Hearts III is the most recent mainline installment in the extensive franchise and serves as the final chapter in Sora, Donald, and Goofy’s long odyssey. Melody of Memory, however, is a musical game that gives long-time fans a chance to relive their favorite moments in the series through playable songs.
Our Kingdom Hearts expert, Kim Wallace, ultimately enjoyed Melody of Memory and said, “I didn’t realize how much Kingdom Hearts’ soundtrack has impacted me until I played Melody of Memory. As a fan of the series, I’ve always praised the score, but something about actually going back through various tracks and tapping to the beats on familiar backdrops showcased just how powerful these songs have been. Melody of Memory delivers great music and tons of unlockables to keep you listening.”
The entire Kingdom Hearts franchise comes to the Epic Games Store on March 30 and will be joined by the highly-anticipated Axiom Verge 2.
