Fans Make Riku Fully Playable in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix

Kingdom Hearts modders continue to impress with GuidingHeart and several others having released a fully playable Riku mod for Kingdom Hearts Final Mix.

While this mod is primarily cosmetic, it’s especially notable since the non Unreal Engine 4 Kingdom Hearts games are innately more challenging to work with in the modding scene. This mod replaces Sora’s model with Riku alongside battle quotes. Further, battle music has been mostly replaced with Kingdom Hearts II representation.

The individuals responsible for this impressive feat are listed below with their contributions:

You can download the mod via Nexus Mods and view the trailer below via GuidingHeart’s Youtube channel:


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.
