In February of this year, I brought attention to an ambitious and impressive Kingdom Hearts III fan mod by Caleb Moore and Critic Perfect. They were recreating Traverse Town in Kingdom Hearts III, a world prominently featured in several previous Kingdom Hearts games. I already shared my compelled intrigue with this project since Traverse Town is one of my favorite hubs in gaming, and it holds a special place in my heart for sentimentality and nostalgia.
However, recently, Caleb shared a teaser trailer for the project, highlighting even more of Traverse Town’s first district while also alerting prospective players to newly implemented features. Notably, Flowmotion is fully supported, collectible postcards are placed around the new custom map, and the world has real-time interactions, such as putting the candles out via the Water spell. Further, the trailer’s conclusion lightly teases the Second District.
Even a custom world map texture for Traverse Town is implemented! That’s genuine dedication.

Just how much of Traverse Town can we look forward to? We’ll simply have to wait and find out. I personally can’t wait to explore this modernized Unreal 4 Engine iteration of one of my favorite locales in gaming.
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.
