The closed beta test for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] has begun. Various people were given the chance to play the game before its release, in a closed beta and some of these people have shared screenshots, information and videos about the experience. We have collected together all of these finds below. Enjoy!
Sharde' Allen from KH13, PublicLibraryx from KH13, Zanzetsuken from KH13 and R.J. Wallischek from KH13 have all taken some screenshots and shared their impressions. All of these screenshots can be seen below.
Krowley from KH-Vids has given a detailed summary of the CBT, complete with screenshots. With a big thanks to him, this can be seen below.
Starting from the tutorial, players are given limited customization options, but this is expected for the closed beta. As per usual in Kingdom Hearts games, small hint tutorials are given to help move the player along. If you don't speak Japanese, it still won't help. :/
The Beta test offers 3 worlds to visit! Dwarf Woodlands, Wonderland, and Agrabah. While there is nothing particularly different with each world, the layout and music still give it their own individual feel. (I myself, spent most of my time in Dwarf Woodlands)
The gameplay is pretty simple. Once you deck is constructed, it's "Click and attack" from there. Players' decks are made from Ally cards that empower your character's Attack and Defense. Assist Cards also help raise your overall Health. With each level up, Missions are granted that give rewards once completed.
Here are just a few of the cards the CBT has to offer through Treasure Chests and Mission rewards;
Another cool aspect, is the "Encounters" that occur every 15 minutes or so. These are like the raid boss battles of the game.
