Square Enix recently revealed that they’re developing a smartphone version of their free-to-play browser title Kingdom Hearts X[chi], as Kingdom Hearts Uncahined X[chi]. Famitsu provides a first look at the upcoming new version of the game.
According to the press release, the meaning of Unchained comes not only from the meaning of “unlocked” with the X (chi or also read as “key”) but it also means that players will be “unchained” and will get to play on the go with their smartphones.
Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] is the first Kingdom Hearts title for smartphones, and the player will take on the role of a Keyblade Master during the Great Keyblade War. In the game, they’ll get to enhance their Keyblades, collect character medals, and explore various Disney worlds with their own style.
The story progresses by clearing stages, and boasting a “1-turn Finish” system, which is based on the speedy battle system that lets you complete fights in a small number of turns. Again, parts of the story weaves into Kingdom Hearts III.
Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] share worlds with the browser version, Kingdom Hearts X[chi], and Square Enix are preparing something special for those who play both versions of the game.
The above is a look at some of the special avatar collection, some that you can carry over from the browser version of the game.
Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] will release in Japan sometime in 2015 for Android and iPhone.
