Kingdom Hearts 10th Anniversary

Along with the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX at this year’s Tokyo Game Show was the reveal of brand new territory for the series: a browser game. Today brought the first screenshots of the the new game, which is only said to be “Coming Soon.”

While we don’t know when to expect this game’s release, we do have some story and game mechanic tidbits. The art will be provided by Kingdom Hearts Mobile and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy veteran Monster Octopus. You will take control of your own, unique character in the Kingdom Hearts universe and travel to various Disney worlds fighting Heartless where you will eventually take your stand in the great Keyblade War using a card battle system. This puts the game, chronologically, as the very first game in the Kingdom Hearts series, predating Birth By Sleep.

This is the first social game to be part of the Kingdom Hearts series and seems to be much more than the standard Farmville fair to be found on browsers. It also appears to add quite a bit to the backstory of the series; establishing it as part of the Kingdom Hearts canon.

Keep an eye out for more news of Kingdom Hearts for PC Browsers in the future.

    Wow, this looks awesome!

  • Damn you kingdom hearts you have gotten me interested in a social browser game.

  • Zyzxx

    Couldn’t care less. Why would I play this when I could be playing these games on consoles/handhelds?

    I’m sure for those who love FarmVille this will be be fantastic. …For those who love FarmVille.

    • Because this one, specifically, is not on consoles or handhelds?

    • Firethorn43

      It will probably be free, or at least free to play. No loss if you don’t like it.

  • Ninty

    Story-wise it seems cheaply placed into KH lore. Only time will tell. Artwork is a little too bright and cute for my taste, but hopefully it’s fun anyway.

  • FireDragon_1321

    Okay, if it’s supposed to be during the Keyblade War, why is Riku on a card (3rd screenshot)? It doesn’t make any sense, really. That and the whole Alice not having aged. Is there an explanation for this? *sigh* I’m pretty sure its canonicity is still debatable unless there is one, so don’t go jumping on a social game as canon yet, Oprainfall. Despite it providing backstory for the game world.
    Square is too busy making social games and FFXIII sequels these days. Oh well. If they manage to explain what’s going on here, I’ll back off, but until I get an explanation, I’m…well, leery at best.
