Gamer’s are always looking for the best way to play their favorite games. Kingdom Hearts is one of those games that has a lot of options when it comes to which order you should play in, but there is no wrong answer. This blog will discuss all of your different choices and how they work with the story line. What do you think? Which kingdom hearts play order would be best for me?
The kingdom’s hearts play order
It cannot be very easy, but I have figured out the best one to get the most enjoyment. It is very similar to the Tangled play order in that it starts with a new game plus of kingdom hearts 1 and then goes into Chain of Memories. After you finish that, you should start playing 358/2 days in parallel with Kingdom Hearts 1. You will then go into Kingdom Hearts 2 and watch the rest of 358/2 days at the same time. After you are finished, you can play Birth by sleep in parallel with kingdom hearts 2.

Doing it this way gives you a good idea of what is going on during Riku’s quest in each game so that when it comes time to watch the full 358/2 days, you have an idea of his feelings. It does not completely spoil anything for the people who want to play 2 first, because it is only 30 minutes long and goes very fast if you know nothing about it.
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
It is the only kingdom hearts game that does not have any other games to go in parallel with it. But if you are really into the story, then I would recommend playing that after watching Connections because it would help you get a better grasp on what is actually going on.
Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep
This game is great because it can be played in any order that you want. It does not spoil anything for the other games, but it especially has a lot of plot twists to keep things fresh. So playing this first would definitely make everything else feel different when you play them, but it also makes the plot more confusing if you are new to the story line. It is definitely the most confusing, so playing it first would not be best for new gamers or people who are really into the series.
Kingdom Hearts Unchained X
This one is tricky because there have been rumors that this game will have some big plot twists like Birth by Sleep did. So even though it is the only game that does not play in parallel with anything, I would still recommend waiting to play it until one of the other games is out. The story line could be completely different than what we know so far and playing them in order will spoil it if they do something surprising.
Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded
This game can be played in parallel with Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. It does not tell you anything about the plot that you do not already know, but it is a lot of fun either way. I would say play this after Chain of Memories because they are both on the same story line, with Re:coded being right in between the two games.
Kingdom Hearts 3
This one is a lot of fun to play, but I would recommend waiting until the others are out. It has not been released yet and there are still rumors about it being based on some big plot twists that they will do. So if you played the rest in order, then this will be a complete surprise and play the games out much differently than if you played them in order.
I hope that this blog can help you to figure out which kingdom hearts play order is best for you. I think it is super fun and has so many great options to choose from.
