Square Enix have now released the KINGDOM HEARTS series on Steam, enabling many more people to experience the grand adventure on Steam Deck and desktop Linux easily with Proton.

The beloved KINGDOM HEARTS franchise was first released in 2002 by Square Enix, and led by legendary game director Tetsuya Nomura, thus launching the longstanding collaboration between Square Enix and Disney. Since then, over 36 million copies have shipped worldwide.

Finally, after being Epic Exclusive for so long! Hopefully we won't see such long exclusive deals in future, as part of Square Enix's change in strategy they announced recently.

The Steam release includes all these across different packages:

  • KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX.
  • KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.
  • KINGDOM HEARTS III + Re Mind DLC.
  • KINGDOM HEARTS INTEGRUM MASTERPIECE (bundle that includes all the above compilations).

They're also giving away multiple Steam Decks as announced on X (formerly Twitter). See their official giveaway on how to enter. Good luck if you're planning to enter!

Currently at time of writing there's no Steam Deck rating from Valve on any of them, but I would expect Valve to put them through review soon.

You can buy the series on Steam. The games also 31% off until June 27th.

i mean, why an steamdeck?
Well, they've sold quite a few copies and they're the only specialized game-playing device (that anyone wants) that isn't locked down to a closed ecosystem. Give away a Playstation and somehow it feels a lot more like you're helping a competitor. Technically giving away a Steam Deck is still helping a competitor, but something about the openness of the platform I think makes it feel less like that.

Because they'd look pretty stupid pushing the ROG Ally and its notorious problems and poor aftersales support, I guess.

sure but why not an playstation?
their game sell better on a deck than an playstation? or its because they are promoting the fact that the game launched on steam?

Good hyptothesis, I hadn't thought of that.

Fair! Given that, my best guess is that because Square-Enix has had lower-than-expected sales on Sony's platform in recent times, which contributed to them losing a lot of money, perhaps they wanted to back up their recent announcement of going truly cross-platform by pushing the Steam angle?
