Have you been seeing all the excitement for Kingdom Hearts III, but you don’t know where to begin? With so many entries and remixes, it’s difficult and confusing. The only person here who could really explain the story at this point is Kyle, and he could probably teach a doctorate-level college course on it.
Square Enix must realize that, so they have compiled all the games, in their final and HD-ified forms, into one package. Kingdom Hearts – The Story So Far is a combination of all the content from Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.
There is so much content here. First, we have the obvious Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 Final Mix. That takes care of the first two games. Then, we can add Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. There are “HD Remastered cinematics” for 358/2 and Re:coded.
That was just the games included in 1.5 and 2.5. From Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, you can add Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep –A Fragmentary Passage-, and, the CG film, Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover.
With all of the games in one package, you can be ready for Kingdom Hearts III’s release on January 29th, even though you may not be able to play through all the games by that time.
Kingdom Hearts III – The Story So Far will release on October 30th for $39.99. It is currently available for pre-order at the Square Enix store, but it should also be coming to your favorite retailers. It will finally put all the games in one package until the inevitable mega package that will include Kingdom Hearts III. You know it’s coming eventually.
Press Release from Square Enix
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
