Big news came out of the Disney x Square Enix world of Kingdom Hearts this weekend. Not only has Kingdom Hearts IV been announced, but there’s a new mobile game on the way along with other celebratory reveals.
It all came through as part of the 20th anniversary celebrations, which included a presentation held in Tokyo on Sunday, complete with live music, artwork showcases, and on-stage appearances from the likes of series director Tetsuya Nomura, composer Yoko Shimomura and more.
The presentation started by previewing the final chapter of Kingdom Hearts Union χ Dark Road, which will be available to play for free on mobile devices this August. Then it explored an “unwritten era,” which will be tackled in new mobile game Missing-Link, the closed beta test for which will launch sometime this year for iOS and Android. After that came the big one—Kingdom Hearts IV—which was announced with some decidedly real world footage.
