Square Enix announced Monday that many games in its Kingdom Hearts series are finally coming to Steam on June 13. So, if you’ve never played a Kingdom Hearts game before or just want to own it on another platform, you’re in luck.

Kingdom Hearts is an expansive, gigantic series, so not every game is coming to Steam. Some of them were mobile exclusive, for example. That said, 10 games will be available, including the mainline series, along with a bunch of side games that add details to the story.

  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX
    • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
    • Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
    • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
    • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days with HD remastered cinematics
    • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX
    • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded HD cutscene compilation
  • Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
    • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
    • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep — A fragmentary passage
  • Kingdom Hearts III + Re Mind DLC

If you don’t want to buy each game, or are just interested in more of the lore, Square Enix has also included Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover and a couple of other cutscene compilations. The publisher will also be releasing the Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece, which includes all the games above and the compilations.

There’s also an announcement trailer, and while it doesn’t feature any exclusive information, you can listen to Simple and Clean, the famous Kingdom Hearts theme, which has been re-recorded and performed by Hikaru Utada.

The Kingdom Hearts series has been on PC since 2021, but it was exclusive to the Epic Games Store. It seems that exclusivity deal is ending.

Square Enix is also working on Kingdom Hearts 4, which was announced back in 2022 during the series’ 20th anniversary showcase. However, there wasn’t a lot revealed, so we’re still waiting on details.

Visions of Mana paints a promising picture of the RPG series’ return
Red-haired girl with horns and dragon wing in Visions of Mana

The vibrant settings and character designs in Visions of Mana instantly alerted me that I'd be knee-deep into fantasy, riding on the back of a giant black wolf into the grassy plains of Fallow Steppe. A lush landscape welcomed me as I chatted with my teammates on top of my mount and tussled with little woodland monsters.

I had this experience at this year's PAX East, where I went hands-on with a demo of the upcoming RPG. I never played previous Mana games, but I have enough experience with RPGs and real-time combat to name it one of the most gorgeous, action-packed games I played at the show. The shiny open-world and slick combat I experienced point to a strong comeback for the Mana series coming later this summer.

The Steam Deck OLED is starting to show burn-in issues.

YouTuber Wulff Den released a report on the Steam Deck OLED, showing it suffered from OLED burn-in after 1,500 hours of screen time. This isn't the first time we've seen a torture test on the Steam Deck OLED, but Wulff Den's experiment is particularly potent. The YouTuber was among the only people to put the Nintendo Switch OLED to the test on the burn-in front, and the consistent updates over the course of two years remain some of the most-viewed videos on the channel.
