Looks like a Kingdom Hearts HD Collections release date for the Xbox One is happening a lot sooner than expected, as an official Microsoft Storefront listing has it coming in the next couple of weeks.
According to the store listings, both Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Collections are apparently arriving on February February 18, one week prior to the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 Re:Mind DLC for the Xbox One.
These collections will be the first time the original Kingdom Hearts (one and two) were playable on Xbox consoles, while also offering the spin-offs from the PSP and 3DS handheld systems. In total, players will be getting 9 Kingdom Hearts experiences with a few of those being cutscenes only.
The store also lists that Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Collection will be 28GB in size. No details on the size of the 1.5+2.5 collection, though we expect it won’t differ from that of the PlayStation 4 version.
The collection were first available on PlayStation 4, and leading up to the release of Kingdom Hearts 3, which was also for Xbox One, many fans had wondered if the collection were ever going to make their way to the Xbox. This was eventually cleared up, as Microsoft revealed last November that they would be heading to the console sometimes this year.
We’ve contacted Square Enix regarding this Xbox One version, and if we get a response, we’ll update the post.
