Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far is The Easiest Way To Get Caught Up on the Series Before Kingdom Hearts 3

A new collection combines past Kingdom Hearts games in a convenient package.

After years of waiting, Kingdom Hearts 3 is finally coming out early next year. If you haven't played a Kigndom Hearts game before, possibly because the series is honestly a little intimidating, then Square Enix and Disney have the perfect collection for you. It's called Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far, and it includes basically every game in the franchise in a single package for PS4.

Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far includes PS4 versions of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX as well as Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Here's the breakdown of both editions included in The Story So Far.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered Cinematics}
  • Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts ReCoded (HD Remastered Cinematics)

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage –
  • Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover (Movie)

Not everything included in The Story So Far are games. Some, like 358/2 Days and ReCoded are remastered versions of the cinematics from the title with added scenes. Other like A Fragmentary Passage or Back Cover are movies and other story additions.

The collection will let players catch up on the wonderfully byzantine story ahead of the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 on January 29, 2019 for both PS4 and Xbox One. Kingdom Hearts 3 includes new Disney worlds for recent films like Big Hero 6 and Frozen. Meanwhile actors from both the Disney films and past Kingdom Hearts games will reprise their iconic roles for Kingdom Hearts 3.

Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far is available for pre-order now on October 30 for $39.99. For more, check out our Kingdom Hearts 3 guide for trailers, previews, news, and everything we know about the upcoming Square Enix Disney crossover.
