Development and Release[edit | edit source]

Questions about the release of the Kingdom Hearts on the Nintendo Switch began after the release of Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, which was the first title to be released on the Nintendo Switch. Before the release of Melody of Memory, series director Tetsuya Nomura explained that there were no plans at the time to port the series to the platform. He said that the company had attempted to port the games previously, but it had proven to be technologically difficult.[3]

Square Enix announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Cloud Version and the rest of the series would be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on October 5, 2021, as part of the final "Mr. Sakurai Presents" online presentation where Sora had been announced as the final fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.[4] Rather than native ports, the series would be releasing as cloud-based versions.[5] A complete compilation of the series on the Nintendo Switch titled Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece, comprising of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX Cloud Version, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Cloud Version, and Kingdom Hearts III + Re Mind (DLC) Cloud Version would also be available for purchase.

On January 18, 2022, Square Enix announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Cloud Version would release on February 10, 2022 on the Nintendo Switch.[6] Demos for it and the other two cloud titles were made available shortly thereafter. The demo allows the game to be played twice for ten minutes.
