To celebrate North America’s first anniversary of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ[chi], Square Enix has announced a relaunch update of the title. Titled Kingdom Hearts Union Cross, the free-to-play RPG will support multiplayer modes as well as updated story and customization elements. The update is slated to be released in April.
With Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], players can create teams of six from their party members or through a matchmaking feature to fight hordes of Heartless enemies and powerful bosses. Players can also take on quests of increasing difficulty as well as unique new missions. To help these teams of friends communicate with each other, the game will now include emotes and text bubbles. Players will encounter both familiar and new faces as the story of the Unions continues to unfold, and the new “Theater Mode” will allow players to relive the drama and rewatch cutscenes.
In addition to the update, Square Enix will provide existing users with special log-in bonuses after the update. Stay tuned for more news on Gaming Trend.
