A special event was recently held for the upcoming mobile game Kingdom Hearts Missing–Link for beta testers, where select Square Enix staff, including Tetsuya Nomura and Ichiro Hazama, discussed the upcoming title.
Reliable Kingdom Hearts community members have shared several questions and responses from the meeting, with the vast majority, if not all, compiled via the Japanese website FF-Reunion. Of course, due to all of this being unofficially chronicled, you should apply some grains of salt.
Some notable new information prospective players should be aware of is that there are considerations for implementing player housing, but it is not a requirement the team is putting on themselves prior to release. It seems like more of a supplemental feature than anything substantial should it arrive.
A cooking feature is also planned to be included via an unspecified NPC. They are not yet in the closed beta test and are seemingly planned for the game’s final release state.
Another planned feature is the self-explanatory option to send and receive friend requests. Further, the gacha animations will be worked on for greater quality compared to how they currently are in the beta test.
We’ll continue to keep you all updated on the development and eventual release of Kingdom Hearts Missing–Link.
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.
Kingdom Hearts IV will launch at an unknown time.
