Project Xehanort is the next spin-off game in the Kingdom Hearts franchise and you won't be able to play it on either your PlayStation 4 or even the upcoming PlayStation 5. After revealing yesterday that it has multiple projects in the works, Square Enix has pretty much killed off all hype by announcing that the Kingdom Hearts game "coming surprisingly soon" is for the device normally housed in your jean pocket. That's correct, Sora's next adventure is headed to mobile platforms.
"Why did he become the seeker of darkness?" is the tagline for this project -- scheduled for launch in Spring 2020. The game's official website gets out in front of it all by immediately confirming the game will have in-app purchases and even asks fans to guess what the name of the title is. A bit of a bizarre campaign indeed, and Square Enix doesn't even reveal what the prize is if your guess is correct.
We weren't exactly expecting Kingdom Hearts IV to suddenly drop out of thin air with a release date just a few months away, but we did at least hope it would be an experience headed to PlayStation platforms. It looks like we'll have to look to the other three teams at Square Enix for that.
Who didn't see this coming?
Is this a surprise lol? Not for me.
The Kingdom Hearts team needs to take a long break anyway, before they get tired out from constant releases.
Wow. Squeenix have outdone themselves this time. It’s amazing how little I care about the series anymore.
@carlos82 I know right they can give us a mobile game every year but it takes ages for a console game.
Square Enix pulled a Blizzard maybe as a response dont you have phones.
Exactly what I expected. Oh well, moving on.
I like KHUx. I'll try it once is out.
I'm all for it. I don't get the hate for mobile games. I'm currently playing Heroes of Might and Magic on mb and having a blast.
I am sure, if this follows the same pattern as every other Kingdom Hearts game releases (major/minor/mobile), you would have to play it in order to get more of the little plot details in an already complicated storyline.
While I really enjoyed Kingdom Hearts III, I didn't really have the time to play all of the non-numbered games that were released. There were quite a few things I had to check a wiki for to get the full scope of what was happening - even if some of those things were "minor" plot points - which, in Kingdom Hearts speak means "more than meets the eye".
I had a feeling it was a mobile game.
What a let down. At least remaster 358/2 as a playable game.
Called it. I said Switch or mobile.
@naruball don't know if you're trolling but this is the first time I agree with you in the comment section of this site.
@VRDart well, I'm not trolling.
