Square Enix has announced Kingdom Hearts IV during the 20th Anniversary Event held today on April 10 JST. The release date and platforms have yet to be announced.
The Dark Seeker saga ended with Kingdom Hearts III, and now a new story arc called The Lost Master has been unveiled, along with the announcement of Kingdom Hearts IV. The protagonist is Sora as usual, who wakes up in a world called Quadratum, which strongly resembles the metropolis of Tokyo. While Sora tries to find a way back to his world, Goofy and Donald visit the underworld in search of clues to Sora. Gameplay footage can be seen in the trailer above, including a fight sequence between Sora and a Shadow.
A free-to-play mobile title called Kingdom Hearts Missing – Link was also announced today, with a closed beta test scheduled to start in 2022 (limited to specific regions).
