What you need to know

  • Kingdom Hearts is an incredible third-person action series from Square Enix.
  • It fuses Disney and Final Fantasy games into one unique experience.
  • The previous Kingdom Hearts games are available in New Zealand.
  • You can purchase them through the country's Microsoft Store.

Updated February 17, 2020: Both of the games are available in the United Kingdom and are expected to release at midnight in the United States. It's official everyone, Kingdom Hearts has properly landed on the console!

A few days ago, "Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix" and "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" were spotted on the Xbox Store. The games had a release date of February 18, but it was unclear if this was a placeholder or the actual release date. Today, we got our answer.

If you're in New Zealand, or are feeling adventurous, you can purchase both games from the Xbox Store in the country. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix costs NZ$89.90 and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is NZ$104.90. This means that the games are probably going to be $50 and $60 in the United States when they launch at midnight.

We haven't received any confirmation that the games will be available today. For all we know, this may be a mistake on Square Enix's part. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. However, be sure to pick both of them up because they're incredible titles that all Xbox One owners should have in my opinion. They're regarded as cult classics nowadays.
