Kingdom Hearts Series on Switch Cloud Version Release Date Announced

Square Enix has recently released a release date reveal trailer for the Nintendo Switch version of the Kingdom Hearts franchise. For those who are not aware, cloud versions of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 Remix, 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and Kingdom Hearts III were first announced during the final Mr. Sakurai Presents Super Smash Brothers Ultimate Character reveal. Those who are not familiar with the franchise the selection of games is the same set of games that were included on the Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far collection for PS4 and other various combined collections of the games as well as the Kingdom Hearts 3 Re:Mind DLC. The cloud versions of the Kingdom Hearts franchise will launch for the Nintendo Switch on February 10. Additionally, demoes of the games are now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

The games include:

  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMix
  • Kingdom Hearts FINAL MIX
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered Cinematics)
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix
  • Kingdom Hearts II FINAL MIX
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final MIX
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD Remastered Cinematics)
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 FINAL CHAPTER PROLOGUE
  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep –A fragmentary passage–
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (movie)
  • Kingdom Hearts III
  • Kingdom Hearts III Re: Mind DLC

While it is great to see the games launch for the Nintendo Switch it is still a shame the games will only be cloud versions. The games feature a ton of combos and various other abilities that could be drastically affected due to slow internet speeds as well as the potential of delayed inputs. That being said hopefully one day Square Enix will reconsider and at least make native versions of the games available one day sans maybe Kingdom Hearts III since that one makes more sense due to it being a modern game.
