SQUARE ENIX DEBUTS KINGDOM HEARTS SERIES ON STEAM

  Today, SQUARE ENIX’s beloved KINGDOM HEARTS series has launched on Steam, bringing the iconic RPG series to a whole new world of players. All three collections released today—KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue and KINGDOM HEARTS III + Re Mind DLC— can be played both on PC and on-the-go on Steam Deck devices, and available at a special discounted price for a limited time*.

Watch the announcement trailer, featuring the re-recorded single “Simple and Clean” from Hikaru Utada, here.

“For the daunting challenge of re-recording one of my most loved songs I enlisted the help of my friend and collaborator A. G. Cook. The new versions of “Simple and Clean”/“Hikari” are still the songs I wrote 22 years ago, but they come from a different place, a different viewpoint. They’re reflective, wiser, and kinder. There are no such thing as wins or losses in life, just what we take away from our experiences. I’m in awe of all the lives that KINGDOM HEARTS has touched and enriched, and looking forward to more to come.” – Hikaru Utada, singer-songwriter

Certain playable titles included in KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX and KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue will feature textural updates to their graphics. Users who purchase KINGDOM HEARTS III + Re Mind (DLC) will also receive the new platform exclusive Keyblade, “Dead of Night.”
