Kingdom Hearts III

It was announced recently by Square Enix that they are currently working on a new “experience” for the popular Kingdom Hearts franchise. This time, it’s not for the consoles but for smartphones. The project is temporarily titled as “Project Xehanort”, with a tagline that says, “Why did he become the seeker of darkness?”

The said smartphone project is slated to be released on iOS, Android, and Amazon.

In relation to this, a new Twitter account with the “Kingdom Hearts OOO OOO” was officially made on Thursday. The said account will be the source for everything that has something to do with the new mobile service. The “OOO OOO” characters represent six unconfirmed characters that will be part of this project. There is still no hint if the main characters from the Kingdom Hearts franchise will be in this smartphone project or will have new characters.

As a way to promote and add hype into this upcoming mobile service, Square Enix is currently holding a campaign in which participants will have to guess the title of the smartphone project. Ten lucky winners will be given prizes if the named the project correctly.

Square Enix teased on Wednesday that the team behind the PC browser game Kingdom Hearts χ [Cross] will have an “unexpected announcement” on Thursday. The game company also revealed that two more active teams (aside from those working with Cross and Kingdom Hearts III) are currently working on other projects related to the franchise. One of these projects is expected to be revealed “surprisingly soon”.

Square Enix released Kingdom Hearts χ [Cross] in 2013 as a PC Browser game. The game sadly ended service in September 2016. Just to give you an idea on what the game is about, it’s a prequel game that is set during the Keyblade War. In the game, you get to create your own avatar and play as a keyblade wielder completing various missions. The PC browser game have paved way for a release of a smartphone game titled Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ which was first released in Japan in September 2015 then on April 2106 North America. In April 2017, the game was relaunched into a new title Kingdom Hearts Union χ [Cross].
