It’s a weird old Venn Diagram, the Kingdom Hearts series.

Do you like Disney? Do you like Final Fantasy? And do you like the most baffling anime, with particularly incomprehensible titles to match their baffling storylines? In the middle, in the intersection between the three – that’s where you’ll find Kingdom Hearts.

The trouble – as anyone trying to get caught up before playing Kingdom Hearts 3 last year found – is that it’s also incredibly convoluted. Trying to track nearly 20 years of Tetsuya Nomura’s weirdest cheese dreams made into a video game is difficult if it’s fresh in your mind, never mind if you’ve not played any of it for years, maybe in over a decade.

So with Kingdom Hearts 3 already available through Xbox Game Pass for console, it’s pleasing that lots (not quite all) of the classic Kingdom Hearts games are also now available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. What, exactly, does that entail? All of these games, sorted into two bigger compilation releases.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (with HD remastered cinematics)
  • Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (with HD remastered cinematics)

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (movie)
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage

You can subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for console for £7.99 a month.

If you sign up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – which includes an Xbox Live Gold subscription, which usually costs £6.99 – you can get your first month for just £1.

It’ll jump up to the full price of £10.99 after that first month, but there’s probably just enough time to play all the Kingdom Hearts games in a month. If you go hell for leather.
