I went to try out the i686 packages but there are file conflicts:

error: could not prepare transaction
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
kdelibs: /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu exists in filesystem
kdegames: /etc/ggz.modules exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

$ pacman -Qo /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu
/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu is owned by gnome-menus 2.22.1-1
$  pacman -Qo /etc/ggz.modules
/etc/ggz.modules is owned by gnome-games
