Square Enix sets $90 price for cloud-only Kingdom Hearts series on Nintendo Switch

UPDATE: £80 in the UK, though currently discounted.

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.)

These prices are live now via the Kingdom Hearts website and US eShop. We've asked Square Enix for UK-specific pricing and will update when we get it through.

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.
