The Kingdom Hearts series is coming to Nintendo Switch

The rest of the games are following Sora onto the Switch

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Nintendo revealed the final DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Sora from Kingdom Hearts, on Tuesday morning. But in his final presentation, game director Masahiro Sakurai also revealed that Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts games are coming to the Nintendo Switch.

All of the Kingdom Hearts titles and their collections will come to Nintendo’s latest console, including Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and Kingdom Hearts 3. The first two games include the original PlayStation 2 games and all the bizarre spin-offs that spawned out of them.

Sakurai didn’t reveal a Switch release date for the Kingdom Hearts titles, whose series celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022. But Sakurai did say that Kingdom Hearts 3 will only be available in a Cloud version — meaning it’ll need internet support in order to run properly.

A follow-up announcement tweet from Nintendo revealed that all of the Kingdom Hearts games will be Cloud versions, although it’s unclear if all of the older games will require that support. The three packages will come to the Switch in a single title.

Nintendo and Square Enix will reveal more information around the Kingdom Hearts games and their Switch debut at a later date.
