Square Enix has announced a Focus Beta Test for the party feature in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link, set to occur on December 2, 2023, during the standard iOS beta test. From the 2,500 testers that get in, 80 will be selected to participate in this testing feature.
This does not mean that the party function won’t be available in the standard beta test, but this more focused test is specifically designed for party functionality. Some party benefits include teleportation and not needing to spend Raid Tickets to participate in raids. Currently, this Focus Beta Test seems to be available only for Japan.
Kingdom Hearts Missing–Link is set after the events of Kingdom Hearts Union χ [Cross] but before the events of Kingdom Hearts Dark Road. It was announced alongside Kingdom Hearts IV. The story is seemingly set to follow the original player character from the Chi titles on a mission after the tragedy of Daybreak Town to ultimately script the events of Dark Road.
The game will play out similarly to Pokémon Go, with particular functionality also allowing players to enjoy the game in a stationary fashion.
Players explore a map linked to the real world and become stronger through battles and by collecting items called Pieces. By carrying your smartphone, it will be connected to the in-game player’s movement, with battles and pieces that can be automatically collected.
You can also access anywhere in the world without having to move and enjoy the game both on the go and at home. Furthermore, players can also enjoy multiplayer raid battles for up to six players and challenge powerful bosses.
Kingdom Hearts Missing–Link will launch for mobile devices via iOS and Android in 2024.
