Kingdom Hearts, one of the most beloved action role-playing franchises of all time, is finally coming to PC. The long-running series, which first debuted in 2002, will be making its debut on PC via the Epic Games Store on March 30, 2021.

All 9 games in the Dark Seeker Saga will be available to purchase on PC through the various Kingdom Hearts bundles that have released on consoles in recent years. However, not all of them are actually playable games. Some are just HD remastered cinematics that recap the story of what transpired in the game. That said, as someone who just played through the entire Dark Seeker Saga over the past year, I can safely say that you’ll get the full experience through these versions.

Here are the different bundles and games that will be available on PC via the Epic Games Store:

Kingdom Hearts HD 1+5+2.5 ReMIX

  • 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)

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (movie)

Kingdom Hearts III + Re Mind (DLC)

Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory

To give you a bit of context, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX features the two main installments in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, plus some of the in-between games that release on various platforms and filled in the blanks with some side stories.

While waiting for Kingdom Hearts III to arrive, Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue which served as a nice preview for what was waiting in KHIII.

More from App and Gaming News

Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory is the most recent game in the franchise and also the most different. It basically a retelling of the events in the series so far with gameplay in the form of a rhythm action game. It’s unlike anything else in the series but does a great job paying homage to the franchise’s amazing soundtrack. I recommend playing this after you beat the entire Saga.

Playing through the entire Kingdom Hearts “Dark Seeker Saga” has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me. Being a Disney fan is what initially drew me to the franchise but the story evolves into so much more than this Mickey Mouse crossover. While some of the individual moments border on cheesy, the overall story is definitely one worth experiencing.
