Opening up the world of KINGDOM HEARTS like never before, SQUARE ENIX® and Disney Interactive today announced KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ (read as Unchained “Key”), the first game in the KINGDOM HEARTS series to come to iOS and Android devices. It will be available as a free-to-play app (with in-app purchases) in North America.
In KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ, players will uncover story elements from the earliest parts of the series’ history, as well as from the highly-anticipated, upcoming KINGDOM HEARTS III. For the first time in the series history, players will create their very own Keyblade wielder and adventure through Disney worlds with beautiful and stylized art, while interacting with a rich cast of memorable Disney characters.
Customization takes center stage with a slew of features for players to fine tune their character. Players can collect, fuse, and evolve items to customize the attacks that their Keyblades can do, team up with other players in guilds to take down giant Heartless bosses, and much more. Combined with the new Avatar system and diverse outfit selection, this is the most personalized KINGDOM HEARTS experience yet.
