The title for Kingdom Hearts Ultimania: The Story Before Kingdom Hearts III says it all. This new comic book from Dark Horse Comics will tell you everything you’d want to know about all the pre-Kingdom Hearts III games when it comes out. That, unfortunately, will take a while.

Hmm, almost manga-like color scheme.

Kingdom Hearts Ultimania will be a very much oversized hardcover book containing all the art and trivia from the games leading up to Kingdom Hearts III. And when I say all of them, I really do mean all of them. Even content from Kingdom Hearts Final Mix through Kingdom Hearts Unchained X will be included here. You can’t really get much more complete than that when you include content from a browser game.

Nights of nostaliga, anyone?

Kingdom Hearts Ultimania will in detail explore every single world that appears in the pre-III games. Every character, every bit of equipment, and every single Keyblade gets their own detailed breakdown. Characters ranging from classics like King Mickey and Goofy to modern ones like Tron and Cap. Jack Sparrow will each get their own profile detailing every little thing you’d want to know about them.

The book will even include detailed summaries of the story arcs so that you don’t miss a thing. Rare concept designs and storyboards are even in the book for you to enjoy. If you’re a fan of Kingdom Hearts, this is a must-have for you.

Still epic even after all these years.

Kingdom Hearts Ultimania is currently available for preorder for a whopping $44.99 from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your nearest comic book store. Unfortunately, because it’s a preorder, you’ll have to wait until June 15, 2021 before you’ll actually get the book.


Kingdom Hearts Ultimania: The Story Before Kingdom Hearts III, from Dark Horse Comics, is the most complete compendium of the Kingdom Hearts games yet.
