In a series of tweets on the Kingdom Hearts Dark Road Japanese and English Twitter accounts, 4 new characters have been revealed. These new characters are Bragi, Hermod, Urd, and Vor. They were teased in earlier artwork by Tetsuya Nomura.
Each of the new characters have a reference to Nordic mythology. Continue reading below for a list of each of the connections we have.
First, we have Urd. Urd comes from one of the Norns in Norse Mythology.
The Norns in Norse mythology are female beings who rule the destiny of gods and men.
Urðr (Wyrd), Verðandi and Skuld are the three most important of the Norns. Located at the well Urðarbrunnr beneath the Yggdrasil of Asgard, they spin threads of life, cut marks in the pole figures and measure people's destinies, which shows the fate of all human beings and gods. Norns are always present when a child is born and decide its fate.
Hermod's name comes from Hermóðr.
Hermóðr is the son of the all-father Odin and the Goddess Frigg.
When Baldr was killed he was the only one brave enough to ride to Hel and try and bring Baldr back from the dead.
Bragi's name comes from a God with the same name.
Bragi is the God of both poetry and music in Norse mythology, he is the son of the God Odin and the giantess Gunnlod. He is known for his wisdom he is very creative with words
and he also has the most knowledge of poems and songs. His name Bragi means “Poet”. Bragi has runes carved on his tongue. He is married to the beautiful Goddess of youth Iðunn,
and they live together in Asgard.
And finally, we have Vor, who is based on Vör.
In Norse mythology, Vör is a goddess associated with wisdom.
The name means “aware” or more specifically, "Knowledge out of Darkness".
Vör was said to be very wise as she searched out all things so nothing was hidden from her. Vör also had the gift of Providence, and of preparing well for the future.

Multiple individual journalists have been claiming to have inside information about a Kingdom Hearts animated series being in the works for Disney+, Disney's subscription video on-demand streaming service.
While a Kingdom Hearts TV show has been rumored to be in production multiple times in the past, with one even being canceled in the series's early years, this is the first time multiple reporters from a handful of popular Disney news sites are claiming this to be true at the same time.
Jeremy Conrad, founder and editor-in-chief at MCU Cosmic, DCEU Mythic, and Star War Unity, with previous work history with IGN and in supporting roles in video games production, hinted at this earlier today with a cryptic tweet. Daniel Richtman, known as a Disney news insider, had also made a strange Kingdom Hearts tweet earlier, which he retweeted for emphasis.
Emre Kaya, a film and TV reporter at The Cinema Spot and former writer for Geeks WorldWide (GWW), followed with a short Twitter thread, claiming that they have inside information about the matter.
Skyler Shuler, editor-in-chief at The DisInsider, then reported that Jeremy's post was "true".
Shuler also tweeted that the alleged new Kingdom Hearts series would not be live action.
We will be keeping an eye on this rumour and provide relevant updates as it develops.
What do you guys think – is there any truth to this rumor? Do you think we will be seeing a Kingdom Hearts (CG) animated series at last? Let us know in the comments!
