The Kingdom Hearts games will be released for Nintendo Switch via cloud streaming.
Announced as part of series protagonist Sora’s reveal as a Smash Bros. DLC fighter, the Switch releases will include three titles; Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, Kingdom Hearts JD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue and Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind.
Release dates will be announced in the near future, Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai said on Tuesday.
Following the Smash Bros. presentation, Square Enix published a 20th anniversary Kingdom Hearts video detailing the activities it has planned:
Sora from Kingdom Hearts is the 13th and final DLC character and will be released on October 18, bringing the final roster to a close at 89 fighters.
“I knew that Sora was the most requested fighter,” Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai said, citing a poll that was released when Super Smash Bros was on the Wii U and 3DS. It was decided not to reveal the results at the time, so as not to place extra pressure on Square Enix.
Sora will also be accompanied by a new stage called Rising Falls, which swoops past the Hollow Bastion castle from the series.
Sakurai recently reiterated that the release of the final character would conclude development on the game.
