Kingdom Hearts Union X[Cross]

 

Square Enix has announced KINGDOM HEARTS Union X[Cross]. It is a relaunch of the acclaimed mobile game Kingdom Hearts Unchained X. A free update is coming to the game next month that will add the new Union Cross multiplayer mode.

The arrival of this update will also allow fans to KINGDOM HEARTS history. Eager fans can pre-register for the update at the official website (https://form3.square-enix.com/a.p/816/). Doing so will net you exclusive wallpapers for your smartphone, as well as in-game goodies. Additionally, the developers are commemorating the relaunch/one-year anniversary of the game. To that end, players will get some in-game presents the first time they login with the update.

Once the update is out, fans will be able to build teams of six. This can be done from their party, or through matchmaking. Then take the fight to hordes of monsters. You will also be able to take on increasingly difficult quests and unique missions. To aid communication, the update will also add text bubbles and new emotes. The story will see players encountering both new and familiar faces along the way. The update also brings a new “Theatre Mode” where you can watch cutscenes again.

Lastly, if you’re going to be at PAX East, you have the chance to be one of the first to get your hands on the update. You’ll also have a chance to get a poster (featuring the artwork of Tetsuya Nomura), and buttons. This is of course only while supplies last. You’ll find Square Enix at booth #11017.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
