Square Enix Bridge has recently updated with various exciting announcements for the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ to celebrate its first anniversary.
Some of the announcements include new worlds including what seems to be Castle of Dreams and the announcement that one of the worlds will be from a Disney world that has not been previously included in any Kingdom Hearts game thus far. Another announcement also includes the introduction of new multiplayer modes.
Last but not least, it was also confirmed that it was Ventus in the art that was released for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]'s 3rd anniversary. Spoilers for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]'s Final and Special episodes follow:
It is mentioned that Ventus's relation to this art also relates to Maleficent's appearance in Unchained 0 and explains that "these are the start of new developments".
The official international Twitter account for Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ also made a tweet promising that exciting announcements were coming soon as well!
A message from Tetsuya Nomura was also included with these announcements and can be viewed below thanks to Katie Armstrong.
A whole year has not yet passed, but it feels as dense as a whole year. In this previous year, we chased after the world of “Kingdom Hearts χ”, and though the world of χ has ended and didn’t reach the milestone of one year [along with KHUχ], the world of “Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ” is ahead, and has two new features.
The first is “Multiplayer”, which offers a pleasant operation. Enjoy fighting Heartless together with party members in the field. “You should be free to fight together with your friends on your smart phone,” I said, and it became the major task for the past few years; the staff had talked about it and proposed it early on, not to mention the importance of the whispered word ‘connecting’ at the heart [of KH].
The other new feature is a big story development. The beginning of “season 2” is ahead, and the story will open up with a main story entry. We’ve already begun production on three new worlds. The third thing is beginning “season 2” with a new world, a Disney world that has not yet appeared in KH.
Departing from KHUχ a bit, the 3rd Anniversary card I drew has Ventus, and a line about Maleficent that is quite profound in relation to KHχ. More will start to unfold in the future, I think.
Please enjoy the coming content enrichment, and thank your for playing Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ.
