The company just announced that every "Kingdom Hearts" games will be available on PlayStation 4 in 2017. Although fans question the inclusion of "Kingdom Hearts III" on the console, which is yet to get a release date, releasing the game exclusively for PS4 might be a huge possibility.

Of course, the highly anticipated "Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage" is set to keep every game enthusiast's heart racing.

In 2014, "Kingdom Hearts 2.5" was released for PS3. It contained a rereleased version of the mobile game "Coded", "Birth by Sleep" -- originally for PSP -- and "Kingdom Hearts II." Meanwhile, fans are encouraged to watch out for more updates regarding "Kingdom Hearts 0.2."

By 2017, PS4 owners can own one disc that includes two movies and all "1.5 and 2.5 Remix" games. "Kingdom Hearts 2.8" on the other hand will have a cinematic version of "Unchained X", originally a Web browser game. Also included is "Dream Drop Distance" and of course, 2.8's highlight is "Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep-A Fragmentary Passage."
