Square Enix and Gangan Online have released chapter 32 of the Kingdom Hearts III manga in Japanese via the latter’s official website.
Titled “Awakening,” Sora, Donald, and Goofy travel to Castle Oblivion with Aqua in tow, where she unlocks the locale, causing it to become its original state, the Land of Departure. There, they seek to wake Ven from his over-decade-long slumber.
Unfortunately, it seems like Yen Press has lost the license to the Kingdom Hearts III manga, as it no longer appears on their website. Perhaps the company is in the midst of reacquiring it, but as of now, there is no estimation of when this chapter and subsequent ones will receive official English translations.
Chapter 33 of the Kingdom Hearts III manga is planned to launch for the Gangan Online app service on November 9, 2023, before eventually greeting the website.
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.
