Perhaps the hardest thing about Kingdom Hearts’ sprawling story is following it, but the next-hardest task is just tracking it all down. There have been two main games, plus tons of spinoffs for handheld devices, each one complicating the narrative further. Fortunately, Square has been working on consolidating the number with compilations and rereleases.
On the PS4, Square has gotten it down to just two purchases: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Now they’ve reduced it to one. All you need is Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far, containing every bit of KH-related material produced by Square to date (at least for consoles) in one $39.99 box.

Those who have never dove into the Kingdom Hearts universe might be asking if it’s possible to play all that before January 29, when Kingdom Hearts 3 is released. Probably not, but you can try. Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far will be out on Playstation 4 October 30.
In KINGDOM HEARTS –The Story So Far–, Keyblade wielders can relive the magical adventures of Sora, Donald Duck, Goofy and friends as they attempt to stop the Heartless invasion that threatens their universe. Fans will travel to iconic Disney locales and join forces with beloved Disney and FINAL FANTASY® characters in order to fight back against the threat of darkness and bring back light to all worlds.
