This past weekend saw over a thousand keyblade wielders gather to attend the first official North American community gathering for KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross] and it was a great success!

The panel saw franchise director and series legend Tetsuya Nomura with Union χ[Cross] Producer Hironori Okayama, who shared their insights into the inner-workings of the beloved series.

There was also a special message from Kingdom Hearts III Co-Director Tai Yasue who revealed the new mini-games inspired by classic Disney cartoons and 1980’s LCD games. These are playable in both Union χ[Cross] and the upcoming third installment, Kingdom Hearts III. Some other announcements for the mobile game included:

  • New Player vs. Player (PvP) Mode – During the Dandelion Meeting event, players were treated to a special preview of the new asynchronous PvP mode which will launch later this year. The new PvP mode will be the first time players can battle against one another in KINGDOM HEARTS, and will require players to strategically use their best medals in turn-based combat to be victorious. The player who wins the most turns will win the battle, and be entered into a monthly PvP Leaderboard for the chance to accumulate rewards and recognition.
  • 2-year Anniversary Celebration Gifts – To commemorate the game’s second anniversary, 3,000 jewels were gifted to all players on April 7, 2018. Players were also gifted two Fantasia Mickey B medals today, which can be claimed any time within the next month.
