Update: The Kingdom Hearts VR Experience is now available in the US and Europe on PSN as a free download. More content is planned to be released for free on the app later this year.

Original: Your Kingdom Hearts adventures aren’t done yet. Well, that is if you have a PSVR headset.

Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts VR Experience finally launches in Europe on February 28th (tomorrow!). That is according to a PlayStation Blog listing. It’s exclusive to PSVR, so don’t expect a PC release. It previously hit Japan last month. We don’t yet know if it’s also coming to the US this week, but it’s a good bet that it does. It’ll be free to download. Take a look at some gameplay we recorded below.

Kingdom Hearts VR offers a highlight reel of the series’ history in VR. You visit some of the more memorable scenes from past games as if you were Sora himself. We tried it out in Japanese last month and it was kind of terrifying. Meeting Goofy and Donald Duck in VR isn’t as magical as you might expect when they’re speaking a language you don’t quite understand.

Scenes are also accompanied by musical performances which are neat, if not entirely memorable. All-in-all it’s not the most astonishing use of VR but I’m sure series fans will get a kick out of it.

The Japanese version of the app actually launched with a few levels still missing. We don’t know if this version will feature those levels or if they’re coming later down the line. In a trailer released last year we did see users wielding the Keyblade for themselves, but neither of the existing scenes let you do that. Hopefully these upcoming scenes will include that feature.
