Sora might be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate later this month, but that won’t be the spikey-haired hero’s only foray on Nintendo Switch. The Kingdom Hearts trilogy is coming to the popular hybrid console via cloud streaming, Nintendo announced in a digital showcase today.

Three games from the popular crossover franchise will be available: Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 + II.5 ReMIX, Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue, and the comparatively simple-named Kingdom Hearts III.


  • One step forwards, two steps back. Probably just cloud streaming so they don’t have to port it and use more resources than they might need to. We’re talking about 2 games that could run on the PS2, whilst the third would justify being a cloud streaming title by itself.

  • Well with Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+ 2.5 Remix Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue and Kingdom Hearts III coming to Nintendo Switch I think it will be fun to not only meet with Disney characters like Hercules Winnie the Pooh and Merlin from Disney’s The Sword in the Stone.
    I think it would be fun too if I caught up with Captain Jack Sparrow from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean Elsa from Disney’s Frozen and Rapunzel from Tangled and the Disney Pixar characters from Toy Story and Monster Inc but I also think The Incredibles and Cars would’ve been nice.
    First Kingdom Hearts became a Playstation exclusive when the first Kingdom Hearts game came out in 2002 and now it’s coming to Nintendo Switch very soon.
    Well I got one to say I am excited for the Kingdom Hearts series coming to Nintendo Switch via Cloud streaming service.

  • We haven’t had any of the cloud streaming games on Switch come to Australia yet, so I doubt it will come here. On the other hand, I played both GeForce Now in beta, and Xbox Game Pass Cloud Gaming recently, and both work pretty well in Melbourne on an NBN50 plan. But I’d probably want an NBN100 plan if I was going to game regularly that way.

    Also makes the “game anywhere” prospect of the Switch a bit limited until 5G and bigger data limits get better.
