  • The titles have skipped Xbox One in the past.
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue just appeared on the Microsoft Store.

At X019, Microsoft and Square Enix announced that the critically-acclaimed Kingdom Hearts games were coming to Xbox One in 2020. While we haven't heard much since then, Twitter user "WalkingCat" just posted a link to the Microsoft Store page for "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue."

We can learn quite a few things from the listing. Firstly, the title is Xbox One X Enhaned and appears to be running at 4K resolution on the system. It should look phenomenal on a 4K display. Secondly, the file size is around 30 GB so it'll be quite a hefty download. Lastly, the release date right now appears to be February 18, so in a few weeks, but that might just be a placeholder. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
