Oh also guess this kills the K & S theory 

I don't think so, if it's focusing on Kairi. The Sora in the gameplay might be Data Sora? I'm just guessing here, the K and S in Coded/Re:Coded were both slightly longer, since you were Data Sora instead of normal Sora.

English subbed trailer btw

@Radiant Hero Ike but if it’s data Sora again, how come the K and S in the logo are super long instead of Coded length?

I dunno! Maybe because it really is a Kairi game? It did say there are multiple playable characters in it, so Data Sora may not be the "main" character in the gameplay, just the default.

I'm just guessin' here, of course. I think it would be weird to purposely make the K and S longer in every title that didn't star Sora only to stop now, though.

Some new images of the game 


I am really tired of KH1 Sora and KH1 locales. (Outside the keyblade graveyard) It’s gonna be so jarring to be going back and forth between the very first games visuals and 3’s visuals with the cutscenes. At the very least, they could show off some of the KH2 or 3D worlds (speaking of 3D, can we get some of TWEWY remixes in this Square?) 

Also alternate forms of Sora and friends are I guess disconfirmed. This just screams lazy with stuff like that. (Especially if we end up going to KH3 worlds and they're just fmv’s with KH1 soda hovering over them)  Like, you couldn’t use KH2 Sora? Or multiple Sora’s from throughout the games for like costumes you could earn? I mean I guess that’s still a possibility, for a game like this, I’d hope there’s some sort of incentive to replay these levels.

Interesting thing to note, whenever the K in Kingdom and the S in Hearts have long... tails, I guess, Sora isn't the main protagonist.

What could this mean... 👀

What a strange indicator and conclusion combo.

Guess I'll have to take your word for it.

This is Eraqus’s and Xehanort’s master. EaoCd6dUwAARyWg?format=jpg&name=900x900Master Odin....yeah the fanfare to this isn’t as big for obvious reasons. I always imagined it would be a big hype moment to see their teacher, but nope...I mean I appreciate the FF summon callback at least. But his first appearance really should have been in a proper Kingdom Hearts title.

I didn't know Eraqus and Xehanort went to Hogwarts.

Melody of Memory is a rhythm game, releasing for all three console platforms (including the Switch) this year:

This being a Kingdom Hearts game, it'll still have further plot.

Because if there's one thing this series was missing, it's a rhythm game.

Lol on Roxas' theme, 0/10 there

You've got to be kidding me...

Right, so let's begin.

  • Rhythm games aren't exactly the strong suit of this series, given both KH2's atrociously bad music sections, and Ice Cream Beat from BBS
  • Why are we still using the fucking PS2 era models? These consoles are more than capable of handling KH3's models. Switch might need some downgrading, but still.
  • Are we seriously doing Kingdom Hearts 1 again? For the FOURTH time??
  • So to be clear - we can't get Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 on the Switch, but what we can get is Square showing us the Switch can easily handle both games by using the same models, and worlds?

Oh lord, I don't think I've been this disappointed in a Kingdom Hearts title in a long, long time.

Somebody at Square Enix really loves KH1 Sora's model. Not KH1 Sora, the model specifically.

Indeed, and on top of that, to add a extra touch of salt - this is seemingly the Kairi game people have longed for - the framing device seems to be this is where they're trying to search Kairi's memories for any trace of Sora after KH3.

140 songs! Awesome.

Anyway I'm pretty sure the ending thing was just a teaser thing for an upcoming Kairi game. This rhythm game focuses on Data Sora, I believe.

Oh, fucking waht?!

Also, we're in phase 2 of Kingdom Hearts now, apparently.

The side there also says "3 new stories, 6 new playable characters. We have two more games to be announced after Melody of Memory. Not sure what the arrows and mostly empty boxes are for though.

Pretty sure if this is coming to Switch then the collections will too.

EDIT: Translated info from the official site.


Well KH3 was the end of the Xehanort Saga, so I suppose that makes sense.

This is hilariously tone deaf on square Enix’s side. And the fact they have the Gaul to call this “phase 2” like it’s some hype MCU shit is even more hilarious. Also hilarious how this canonically is after KH3, but it’s the first game for Switch owners. Like...lol

also of course the Master of Masters is here. MoM/Melody of Memory, yknow

So that is Xigbar there. Hmph.
