As part of a special 20th anniversary celebration of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, Square Enix and Disney formally announced Kingdom Hearts IV - the next installment in the RPG series. Apparent it it will kick-off a new story-line called the “Lost Master Arc” and take place in a large realistic city called the Quadratum.
With Donald Duck and Goofy in tow, because hey, this is Kingdom Hearts. It joins the announcement of a brand-new mobile game called Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link, and you can see the trailers for both in the following 20th anniversary video.
Sora makes a triumphant return with an updated look at the beginning of an epic new storyline titled the “Lost Master Arc.” Beginning with Sora facing off in a boss battle against a giant enemy, players are introduced to the Quadratum, a large, expansive city set in a gorgeous, realistic world unlike anything ever seen before in the KINGDOM HEARTS series. Fans will be excited to see the return of Sora’s well-known companions Donald and Goofy, in addition to the first appearance of Strelitzia, a mysterious new character who appears before Sora in this strange new setting.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary with the announcement of two new Kingdom Hearts titles,” said series Brand Manager, Ichiro Hazama. “We’d like to thank the fans for all of their support over the years, and we can’t wait for them to experience all that’s to come for Sora.”
“Sora is an original Disney video game hero like no other, beloved by our team, and fans across the world. We’ve been honoured to work with Tetsuya Nomura and his team for two decades to introduce these original stories of discovery, courage, and friendship,” said Nana Gadd, Director, Walt Disney Games. “This glimpse into Sora’s next adventure is just the beginning – we can’t wait to show more when the time is right.”
And with that development is said to be early on in the process so it might be some time before this is released. That said, more Kingdom Hearts is something of a great news day for fans the world over.
