Kingdom Hearts: Order and games necessary to understand the story

It is more than possible that, if you are playing Kingdom Hearts 3 , you are not new to the saga. However, being able to face the whole story of the game can be a bit complicated. What’s more, you may believe by playing the main games you will already know enough, but it is not .

We are talking about 17 years of deliveries to date of the game at hand and that is why we have decided to offer you this brief entry on the essential games to understand the plot of Kingdom Hearts 3 , and how and where to play them without many inconveniences. Of course, keep in mind that you cannot play all of them on a single platform .

What games to buy to understand the history of Kingdom Hearts 3

As we said at the beginning, it is impossible to play all games on a single platform . However, in recent years, a series of compilations have been released that minimize the problems of enjoying the saga:

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix:

This is a compilation of the remasters available on PS3 . This is a pack, available only on PS4 , which includes:

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix.
  • Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories.
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.
  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix.
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix.
  • Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Prologue

This time, we only have three games:

  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance.
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage.
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (which serves as a summary of χ).

As you can see, in principle, apart from playing the original games on their respective platforms, the only way to play them all is to buy the two PS4 compilations . Keep in mind that Union χ , whose story is still in development , is currently playable .

Order in which you should play them

First of all, it should be mentioned that the playable order of the games does not have to do with the chronological order of events in history . Therefore, it is not recommended to play them in chronological order , but in the order in which they were released . The reason is as simple as it is complicated. As new games are released, many of the events that are narrated change the interpretation of previous events completely.

In other words, if you play in chronological order you will be spoiling yourself from the plot twists of the following games, especially when it comes to Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II .

Therefore, the order in which you should play to unravel the story naturally would be the starting order :

Chronological order of the saga

Then, as we have already commented, there is the chronological order of the entire Kingdom Hearts universe to which we have devoted an extensive report, since there is a certain theory that maintains that the temporary location of Union X is not what is thought, but the Chronological order most accepted by the vast majority of players is :

  • Kingdom Hearts: χ.
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover.
  • Kingdom Hearts Unchained Union χ.
  • Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage.
