While there are constantly memes about how every Kingdom Hearts entry is canon, that is not true for one particular title only known by select fans; Kingdom Hearts V-Cast. This title was released during the mid-2000s for a service hosted by Verizon Wireless.
Its premise comprises Sora finding himself in an unfamiliar world known as Swashbuckler’s Island after falling asleep and trying to find his way to Donald and Goofy. Maleficent is the game’s primary antagonist, though nothing notable happens, and it has not been mentioned by Tetsuya Nomura or other Kingdom Hearts staff since its inception.
Footage and screenshots of this game have been relatively scarce for over a decade, so this recently uploaded footage by Youtuber Negative Space showing the entirety of the game’s final stage is rather significant.
You can view the final stage of Kingdom Hearts V-Cast below:
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.
