If you’re eagerly awaiting the launch of Kingdom Hearts III on January 29th, 2019, then you can now prepare for your upcoming adventure early! This is because a selection of mini games from Kingdom Hearts III are now playable in the mobile game, Kingdom Hearts Union X [Cross], according to the press release from the North America branch of Square Enix. If you update the app now, you can try out the “Classic Kingdom” mini games. They can be found inside the brand new χ3 [ex tres] mode. They are inspired by classic Disney short films, and their retro style is modelled after the LCD displays of portable systems from the 1980s.

There’s more here than just playing some mini games, though. Players who are good enough to meet certain conditions will be eligible to receive a code that can be redeemed in the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III. This redeemable code will get you the Starlight Keyblade (shown below)! For those that earn the code, it will be distributed at some time in the future, most likely somewhere around the launch of Kingdom Hearts III. At that time, those players will be able to select their preferred system, including Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

Sora wields the Starlight Keyblade.

 

The upcoming Kingdom Hearts III follows the perilous new adventure of Sora and friends, in a story about the power of friendship. Light and darkness will clash yet again, in a quest spanning many Disney and Pixar worlds. Will you be able to prevail against the darkness that now threatens the universe?

 

You can find out more about Kingdom Hearts Union X [Cross] at its official website and on its Twitter page.

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.
