Kingdom Hearts content creator damo279 has publically unveiled his and several other fans’ efforts to dub the story of Kingdom Hearts Union χ [Cross]. This prequel to the Kingdom Hearts franchise contains integral narrative threads and characters connecting it to later chronological entries as well as games yet to be released.
The game’s release on mobile devices did receive official English translations, but it was wholly unvoiced. Considering how extensive this title’s story material is, damo and other fans united under the banner of dubbing it so it’d be more digestible to newer fans yearning to catch up. Plus, it creates a new, fresh way for veteran fans to experience this beloved story.
No release date or window was given for this project’s release, but it will definitely arrive soon. I’ve actually been tuning into damo’s streams myself while he was working on this, and the project’s efforts are nearing completion.
The script for the dub comprises 36,000 words and 15,00 voiced lines across five hours. This fandub has taken significant work that cannot be understated, so I highly recommend checking it out when it drops. In fact, we’ll be providing coverage for when it does launch.
UPDATE 2/8/2023: Part 1 of the fan dub has been announced to launch on February 13, 2023:
"This is where your story began, the story of your very own adventure."

You can view the Kingdom Hearts Union χ [Cross] fan dub trailer below:
In Kingdom Hearts IV, Sora is in Quadratum with Strelitzia, a prominent character from Kingdom Hearts Union χ. This setting is an afterworld for the two characters following their tragic fates. Additionally, this new saga has been titled the Lost Master Arc. Further, some combat footage was showcased, with Sora performing Keyblade transformations against a giant entity that seems to be a Heartless? We don’t know for sure.
“The heart resides within the soul, which in turn is guided by fate to its rightful place” is a crucial phrase used at the start of this trailer for the upcoming mainline game.
