Kingdom Hearts is leaving Xbox Game Pass, but 15 new games are joining

The Kingdom Hearts series is leaving Xbox Game Pass at the end of the month. That’ll happen just after 15 new games join the service, including new EA Play titles.

On May 31, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue both leave the console version of the service. The games were never available on the PC version due to Epic Games Store’s exclusivity deal on the platform.

While that’s a loss for fans, Xbox Game Pass is adding 15 more games by the end of May. Conan Exiles is one of the bigger names in the batch, hitting Cloud and Console on May 27. Other notable additions include Maneater, Slime Rancher, and SnowRunner.

Three EA games are coming to service this month through Game Pass’ EA Play partnership. The multiplayer dodgeball game Knockout City will launch on console, PC, and cloud on May 21. Peggle 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville join the cloud line-up on May 20.

For longtime Xbox fans, there’s one notable surprise here: Fuzion Frenzy is coming to Microsoft’s cloud service on May 27. The multiplayer party game was an original Xbox launch title in 2001.

Here’s the full list of titles joining the service this month.

  • SnowRunner (Cloud, Console, PC) — Available Now
  • Peggle 2 (Cloud) — May 20
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (Cloud) — May 20

The Xbox Games Showcase will return at 10 a.m. PT on June 9. Like all of its showcases, Microsoft plans to stream this presentation across its YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, although it will also give away tickets to see the show in person via Xbox FanFest. According to the Xbox Wire post announcing the livestream, this is Microsoft's "first Showcase featuring games from our portfolio of studios across Activision, Blizzard, Bethesda, and Xbox Game Studios, in addition to titles from our third-party partners."

3 great Xbox Game Pass titles you should try this weekend (April 26-28)
The current gen version of Fallout 4.

This has been a pretty busy week for new releases, with the likes of Another Crab’s Treasure, Stellar Blade, Sand Land, and more coming out. Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s video game subscription service, has also had quite a busy week. Three games in particular stand out as must-plays this weekend for those who want to delve a bit further into the service rather than spend money on a new game.

One is an excellent single-player Star Wars game from 2023 that you might have missed because of how busy last year was for big releases. Another is a new real-time strategy game that earned buzz on Steam in the lead-up to its release. Finally, there’s a Bethesda Game Studios classic that just received an Xbox Series X update that you can experience free of charge via Game Pass. If you're looking for a new game to start this weekend, but don't feel like buying something new, give any of these a try.

April’s most anticipated RPG is coming to Xbox Game Pass
Key art for Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes.

We've learned about the titles that will come to Xbox Game Pass throughout the back half of April, and several of them are games getting added to the catalog the day they launch. Of those, the most notable is Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.

While that name is a mouthful, RPG fans will want to pay attention to Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes as it is a spiritual successor to the long-dormant Konami RPG series Suikoden. Many of the developers who worked on the original Suikoden games worked together to reimagine the concept for the modern era, creating an RPG with over 100 recruitable party members, engaging combat, and a gorgeous pixelated art style that gives Square Enix's HD-2D games a run for their money. Prequel game Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is already on Xbox Game Pass too, so Microsoft seems all-in on backing this Suikoden successor as we wait for Konami to release remasters of those titles or a new game in the series.
