There’s no doubt many Kingdom Hearts fans are eagerly awaiting the new year; the much-anticipated Kingdom Hearts III comes out on January 29, 2019 on PS4 and Xbox One. The game is just the latest in the Kingdom Hearts saga, which includes a fairly complicated plot that spans more than a dozen releases. Now, PS4 players will be able to easily catch up on the story or replay it from scratch, thanks to a new bundle coming on October 30.
Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far bundles both the collector pack Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, meaning you’ll get access to every Kingdom Hearts game you need to get the full story. This should help you work your way through the series’ sometimes complicated timeline. Here are all the games included with the bundle:
