kingdom-hearts-2-8-aquaYesterday was a huge day for Kingdom Hearts news.

Let’s start with something minor: this winter, Sora will be added to World of Final Fantasy as a free limited-time DLC Champion.

I’ve been enjoying World of Final Fantasy, and I’m curious if this means they’ll add other characters as time goes on. (Champions are essentially summons.)

Next, in a shocking announcement many people thought would never come, the Kingdom Hearts compilations are coming to the PlayStation 4! Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5 will be available on March 9th in Japan, March 28th in North America, and March 31st 2017 in Europe. You can already pre-order it from Amazon.

If you’re unfamiliar with the remixes, this collection contains:

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD cutscenes only)
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD cutscenes only)

In other words, this is the definitive way to catch up on the series aside from the content included in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. If you’re unsure of the correct order to play the Kingdom Hearts games, I’ve written a guide.

And speaking of which, Square Enix also released the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep 0.2, part of the upcoming 2.8 collection. It’s truly epic.

Finally, two new Kingdom Hearts 3 screenshots were revealed. They show Olympus and Sora using new Drive Forms, which confirms that Drive Forms will return.

Are you excited for Kingdom Hearts 2.8 and Kingdom Hearts 3? What do you think about the full collection finally being available on the PS4? Let me know your thoughts on yesterday’s Kingdom Hearts news and the awesome opening movie in the comments.
