You can view a video showcasing this impressive mod below, via TrueBlade Seeker’s YouTube channel:

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.
