What you need to know
- Kingdom Hearts is an incredible third-person action series from Square Enix.
- It fuses many Disney and Final Fantasy franchises into one unique experience.
- The two recent releases appear to be running at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X.
- You can purchase both Kingdom Hearts games through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).
A few weeks ago, "Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix" and "Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" were spotted on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One. The games subsequently launched on the console last week, but many gamers were curious as to how they perform on Microsoft's machine, particularily the Xbox One X.
We were able to test them out recently and can confirm that they appear to be 4K resolution or very close. What's even better is that they run at 60 frames per second (FPS) on Xbox One X. Many gamers thought that the titles, since they're third-person action games, would be 30 FPS, but that isn't the case.
Since I don't have a standard Xbox One anymore, I can't confirm how they run on base hardware, but on Xbox One X, they're an absolutely glorious experience. There are so many titles packed into the two collections that I can't help but recommend them. If you own an Xbox One X, both Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue are must-buys in my opinion.
