posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Square Enix announced on August 3 that it has started accepting pre-registrations for the Japanese version of the Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ iOS and Android game. Square Enix is releasing the game in Japan in September. Those who pre-register will get a free wallpaper.
Square Enix streamed an E3 trailer for the game in June.
Square Enix confirmed at E3 that it will release the game in the West. The game is the first Kingdom Hearts title for smartphones that will get an English release, and it will be free-to-play with in-game purchases.
The game will take place in the distant past, and players will take on the role of a keyblade wielder. Players will strengthen their keyblades and collect character medals while investigating various Disney-themed worlds. Players can use the medals to launch big attacks, and create and use decks. Players will also aim for a "one-turn finish" in battles.
Square Enix previously released the Kingdom Hearts χ PC browser game in 2013 in Japan only. The two games will "share the same worldview," and those who play both games will be able to port their avatars from Kingdom Hearts χ into Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ.
