UPDATE 19/1/21: Square Enix has given Eurogamer UK pricing for the Kingdom Hearts series’ cloud debut on Nintendo Switch, which yesterday made headlines for costing $90 in the US.
The same Integrum Masterpiece cloud edition is £80 in the UK, although is currently on sale for £64 if you pre-purchase it before release.
Alternatively, you can buy cloud versions of Kingdom Hearts 3 for £50 (or £40 via pre-purchase), 1.5 & 2.5 Re mix for £33 (or £26.39 pre-purchase), and 2.8 for £40 (or £32 pre-purchase).
ORIGINAL STORY 18/1/21: The Kingdom Hearts series comes to Nintendo Switch next month on 10th February via cloud-only versions of various games – and at a price.
Individually, you’ll be able to pick up Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX Cloud Version for $40. Both Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Cloud Version and Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind (DLC) Cloud Version cost $50 each.
Alternatively, you can get the lot via the Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece for Cloud edition, which is priced at $90. (At the moment, there’s a 20 percent off offer if you pre-order – meaning this is temporarily $72.)
In the meantime, the $90 price point – especially just for a licence to stream these games – has raised eyebrows among fans.
It’s not the first time Square Enix has been embroiled in pricing controversy, either. In December, Square Enix slapped Forspoken with a £65 price on Steam – around £15 more than many other big PC launches.
Around the same time, the PC Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade initially popped up with a placeholder £70 pricetag, though this was changed to £65 also .
