PSA - Kingdom Hearts Series coming to Xbox One in 2020
Last week was full of announcements for Xbox gamers. One of two announcements was that classic games in the Kingdom Heart series will be released on the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X in 2020. When in 2020 we dont know, but they are coming.
Square Enix and Disney state that p ayers will soon be able to experience where it all began with the following two compilations;
KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX
- KINGDOM HEARTS FINAL MIX

In addition, for those gamers out there who are yet to experience Kingdom Hearts III, a free demo is now available, featuring the magical worlds of Hercules and Toy Story. The demo is available as a free download on the Xbox One. In the demo, players will face off against the formidable Rock Titan in the picturesque, yet dangerous, world of Olympus from Disney’s Hercules. Players can also team up with beloved characters Buzz and Woody from Toy Story to take down the Heartless and explore Galaxy Toys.
For players eager to continue their adventure after the demo ends, save data until the end of the Hercules section can be transferred into the full retail version of the game. Additionally, the demo allows players to view the “Memory Archive” videos, a collection of essential cutscenes that allow players to get caught up on the story of Kingdom Hearts.
As we post this, we know a XBA staffer, or two, who is somewhat cynical to this announcement, but regardless, everyone here is happy for Kingdom Hearts fans who own an Xbox One.
