Critically-Acclaimed KINGDOM HEARTS Series to Debut on PC via the Epic Games Store this March 30th
By Square Enix Team
While the series first debuted on console nearly twenty years ago, on March 30 it makes its comprehensive PC debut with eleven magical gameplay experiences across 4 amazing titles. For the first time ever, PC gamers can now catch up on this critically acclaimed series and see why it has such a devoted and avid fan following.
“It is truly a great pleasure to bring so many KINGDOM HEARTS adventures to PC gamers around the world,” explains KINGDOM HEARTS series Producer Ichiro Hazama. “Our collaboration with Epic Games is one that stretches back to the development of KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and as part of this ongoing relationship, the team at Epic Games have been incredibly supportive in helping us make this a reality. I’m incredibly excited for so many new players to discover and enjoy the action, magic and friendship of KINGDOM HEARTS on PC.”
For the uninitiated, the KINGDOM HEARTS series tells a story of light and friendship overcoming the power of darkness, where players travel to a multitude of beloved Disney and Pixar worlds. Throughout much of the series you’ll play as Sora, who is of course joined by Donald and Goofy, on this mission, though in certain titles you’ll play as other original KINGDOM HEARTS characters (not to mention various Disney characters, too).
Whether you played the original KINGDOM HEARTS way back when, or maybe you haven’t dipped your toes into the series at all, with the PC versions you can dive right in at the very beginning and experience the story from the very first entry.
Beyond seeing where the series began and getting in on the ground floor, PC gamers can experience the entirety of the Dark Seeker Saga on (what else?) PC. You might ask yourself, “what is this Dark Seeker Saga?” Good question!
The Dark Seeker Saga is essentially the epic adventure of Sora and friends spanning from the first game in the series to the most recent release: KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory. The story, while it takes place in many different locations and during different time periods, all ties into one main antagonist. Spread out over eleven experiences and hundreds of hours of gameplay, you can look forward to seeing the story culminate in a final, climatic conclusion all on PC.
As you play through the series, you’ll visit a multitude of Disney and Pixar worlds allowing you to explore these iconic locales in new and unexpected ways. Ever wanted to explore the eponymous factory from Monsters, Inc.? Or climb the snowy mountains to Elsa’s icy citadel? What about soar over the San Fransokyo skyline as seen in Big Hero 6? Well, each is possible in KINGDOM HEARTS III + Re Mind (DLC).
Locations aside (but to be clear, we’re talking about top notch worlds, including Atlantica, Agrabah, Halloween Town, Cinderella’s Castle and so many more), you’ll of course run into a parade of Disney characters on your adventures. Many Disney characters will join your party and fight alongside you, allowing you to live out some of your wildest crossover dreams.
KINGDOM HEARTS is one of gaming’s most unique and magical series, and on March 30 it’ll be available on PC for the first time ever. We hope you pick up your keyblade and join Sora, Donald, and Goofy on this incredible journey of a lifetime!
