Square Enix has dropped a series of announcements in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the video game series “Kingdom Hearts” in March 2022. You can check out the complete announcement video, or the round-up of announcements below.
First up, “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix”, “Kingdom Hearts HD2.8 Final Chapter Prologue”, and “Kingdom Hearts III” are all coming to the Nintendo Switch. Relive some of your favourite “Kingdom Hearts” adventures in a whole new way!
“Kingdom Hearts Union Cross” — depicting the “Keyblade War” is set to be streamed for free, while “Kingdom Hearts Dark Road” — which shows the story of Master Xehanort in his youth, will be included in the Ver.5.0 update this winter.
For those who love a bit of a gamble with their figure collecting, “Ichiban Kuji” is releasing a special “Kingdom Hearts” line in 2022 — the highlights of which include figures of Sora and Kairi from “Kingdom Hearts III”.
If betting all your cash on kuji was not enough, a luxurious gold and silver chess set patterned after Master Eraqus and Master Xehanort’s in KHIII will also be made available for collectors. Priced at a princely JPY 77,000, reservations are currently accepted at the Square Enix store.
Last but not least, a special event will be held to commemorate the 20th anniversary of “Kingdom Hearts”. Details will be announced at a later date — so stay tuned!
