Nearly All of the Kingdom Hearts Games Dropped on Steam Today

If you’ve ever been interested in Kingdom Hearts but have been intimidated by these games’ deeply confusing names and the fact that they’re spread out across seemingly every game console and handheld in existence, you’ll be excited to hear that Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece fixes at least one of these problems. It’s a collection that finally hit Steam after several years of PC exclusivity on the Epic Game Store, and it brings together nearly every entry in the series into a convenient package, albeit one that you’ll need a glossary and several Wikipedia articles to make sense of.

The Kingdom Hearts series, which blends together Disney properties, Square Enix characters, and its own convoluted original world, has been running for over two decades now. While there are only three numbered games in the series, there have been many more entries along the way, including multiple that were released on handhelds or phones. Over the last few years, most of these have been re-released and remastered in collections with perplexing names.

Integrum Masterpiece bundles together three of these collections at a discounted price, although each collection can be purchased separately on Steam. The first collection is Kingdom -HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX-, which contains HD versions of Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, most of the cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and most of the cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. Basically, this is a combination of two previous collections that came out on the PS3, and altogether, this one includes four HD re-releases and two cutscene compilations. Got it so far?

The second of the three collections is Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, which contains Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-, and Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (which is an hour-long film that summarizes the browser game Kingdom Hearts χ). Still with me? Almost there. Lastly, the final of the three collections is Kingdom Hearts III bundled with that game’s DLC. Together, these three collections contain some version of most (but not all) of the games in the series, even if multiple installments are cutscene compilations without gameplay.

Additionally, initial reports indicate that the collections seem to run well on the Steam Deck, so if you want to play the games on the go, that seems like a good way to do it. If you start now, you may even be caught up with the series in time for the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts IV.
