Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link
The new mobile title Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link is set in between Kingdom Hearts Union Cross and Dark Road; as such the game is described as “A story that connects all of the mysteries up to now.”
Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link will feature 6-player battles with actions similar to the main series.
The game can be played in both landscape and portrait mode as it includes gameplay similar to Pokemon Go.
Apart from the usual story mode, players can access a walking mode where they have to go around the real world like Pokemon Go, but instead of Pokemons, players need to collect materials that make the Keyblade stronger.
For those of you who don’t like fresh air or prefer the shades like vampires, Tetsuya Nomura, the director of Kingdom Hearts, has made sure that players can enjoy the game without using the walking mode at all.
The Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link developers also mention the Founder Ephemer, the Keyblade wielder from Kingdom Hearts X, Multiple Scalas, and the Secret Society of Keyblade Wielders, And from the trailer, it looks like the game incorporates voice-acted cut scenes, which will give more life to the story and characters.
