You can view this message’s translation below via our team’s Ryuji:
“Thank you for participating in the prototype test. [Regarding development progress], we have implemented 70% of all the features, 50% of the UI, and 0% of the main storyline.
Including the fact that we haven’t implemented the storyline, I would say development is, overall, about 50% complete.
Our staff will continue to work hard on developing Missing Link.
I hope that Android users like myself have the opportunity to try it out soon.”
*To clarify, the overall 50% stated here refers to the implementation rate, and does not necessarily reflect development completion.
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.
