In a surprising announcement, Square-Enix has provided Kingdom Hearts fans with a new trailer today, revealing a few surprises in store for us coming this year:
First off, the trailer shows what to expect with upcoming new story quests in 'Kingdom Hearts: Union X[cross]'. After that, the trailer gives us our first real look at the other mobile game, 'Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road', giving us an additional look at the game's characters, and the gameplay in action. Lastly, the trailer confirms the game will be released less than a week from now on June 22nd!
Union X[cross] and Dark Road
Kingdom Hearts III Original SoundtrackEver since the game first released a year and a half ago, fans have been demanding an official soundtrack for 'Kingdom Hearts III' to be made available. Now, it appears that the folks over at Square-Enix and Disney have granted the wishes of fans, with the trailer confirming that an official soundtrack of the game will be releasing in Fall 2020!
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of MemoryThe final announcement from today's trailer came in the form of a reveal, confirming that a rhythm action game (sort of similar to Theatrhythm Final Fantasy), named 'Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory', will be releasing in 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch (marking the first time a Kingdom Hearts game was released on that console)! What's more is that the game seems to also have a playable scenario that takes place after the events of KH3: ReMind, allowing players to play as Kairi!
While these announcements were terrific, eagle eyed viewers will have noticed that the beginning of the trailer reveals that the series is now in its "2nd Phase", which seems to have started with KH3: ReMind, and includes Dark Road and Melody of Memory. But what's interesting is that the series' 2nd Phase contains five slots, three that are occupied by ReMind, Dark Road, and Melody of Memory, while the other two slots may hint at two currently unannouced projects!
