Kingdom Hearts IV: Trailer, Gameplay, and Platforms
Recently Square Enix announced the making of Kingdom Hearts IV as a part of their 20th-anniversary celebration. Many Kingdom Hearts fans didn’t see this coming as Kingdom Hearts III was released just three years ago. But, the company surprised the fans with this news. The official announcement also came with a trailer as the fans were extremely overjoyed to know the news.
Furthermore, this fourth installment will continue with the story of Sora, the protagonist of the series. He and his friends Donald Duck and Goofy are off on a new adventure called The Lost Master Arc. Other confirmed characters are Strelitzia, Darkside, and Luxu. Though we have limited news at the moment, more official updates will be coming out over the year.
Regarding platforms, the game will release on PlayStation 4 and Windows. However, fans can also experience the game on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch consoles.
Despite the release of the trailer, the release date of KH4 is still not clear. But, many pundits expect the game to release in 2024 or 2025. This is because Square Enix usually takes a long time to release its games. This is evident in its previous game releases as it released only three main games between 2002 and 2019.
Two new games, two new logos.
