That’s right, Kingdom Hearts has finally made its way onto PC. As of March 30, 2021, the entire Kingdom Hearts collection is available on the Epic Games Store. Previously the series was available on just about every platform except PC including PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, and there was even a browser game! So let’s talk about Kingdom Hearts on PC. What is it? How much is it? Which games are available on the Epic Games Store?

What is Kingdom Hearts?

“KINGDOM HEARTS is a series of role-playing games created through the collaboration of Disney and Square Enix. Since the first KINGDOM HEARTS was released in March 2002 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the series has expanded with several additional entries. The series celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2017 and has shipped over 33 million units worldwide. Most-recently, KINGDOM HEARTS III, in 2019, allowed players to join forces with Donald Duck and Goofy for the adventure of a lifetime traveling across worlds based on beloved films like Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story, and Monsters, Inc., and Walt Disney Studios’ Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Hero 6, Tangled, Frozen and more.”

You can even pick up the game at a pretty big discount of 20% if you purchase the game on the Epic Games Store. “To celebrate the launch of the KINGDOM HEARTS series on PC for the first time, a 20% discount* is available on all KINGDOM HEARTS games sold via the Epic Games Store until April 6, 2021.” You’ll want to act fast though, because it looks like you’ve only got until April 6 to purchase the game while it’s on sale. Here’s the price of each game available on sale on PC:

  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX: $49.99 ($39.99)
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue $59.99 ($47.99)

Disney Plus

Alongside a nice discount, Epic is also offering players who purchase Kingdom Hearts III + Re Mind (DLC) by May 31, 2021 a free 3-month subscription to Disney Plus! “Additionally, people who purchase KINGDOM HEARTS III + Re Mind (DLC) via the Epic Games Store by May 31, 2021 and are not current subscribers will receive a three month subscription to Disney+ courtesy of the Epic Games Store** in North America and select countries. Disney+ is the exclusive streaming home of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star wars and National Geographic plus Star in select overseas markets.”

A free 3-month subscription to Disney Plus? That’s huge. Especially when Kingdom Hearts has a whole list of characters from the Disney universe included in the games. It’s pretty big news that Kingdom Hearts is finally available to play on PC; this allows for a whole new audience to come in and experience the game for the first or fiftieth time. Who knows, maybe I’ll even pick it up on PC one of these days (I could use a free subscription to Disney Plus)!
