I was very late to the Kingdom Hearts craze. Like very, very late. In fact, I never really played any of these games until about three years ago. But once I picked up a remastered copy for PlayStation 4, I was instantly hooked.
Today, SquareEnix announced a brand new collection of games that will hit the PS4 very soon. If you want to know all the details, and find out exactly when and for how much, hit the “Continue Reading” below!
As the image above boasts, the Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Package includes ten (count ’em) “magical Kingdom Hearsts experiences” all in one box. The collection will hit stores on March 17, and will run what I think is a very reasonable $49.99 (USD).
This is basically the Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far package that came out ahead of Kingdom Hearts III packaged in with the just-mentioned third mainline title of the series. So what you’re getting in the box would be the following:
- Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts III
- Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
- Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
- Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
- Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep: Final Mix
- Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage
- Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover (movie)
If there’s one thing SquareEnix and Disney have learned how to do, it’s how to repackage and resell Kingdom Hearts collections. This appears to be no different. It’s pretty much everything you need to enjoy the entire saga together (minus the Kingdom Hearts III downloadable content, which will run an additional $29.99).
But still, this is a pretty good value for everything you get here. The quick math says (and you can double check me) that this boils down to $5 per entry. So if you’ve never had the chance to enjoy the adventures of Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Mickey (and many MANY others) – this is a great way to jump in.
And when you do, you might need this to explain the whole thing. It’s a wonderful game, but the confusion can be pretty intense – even for those who have played it from the beginning!
