An Official Kingdom Hearts Trailer Has Dropped

in Disney, Video Games

Yesterday we reported that a new Kingdom Hearts logo had been discovered within the website for the mobile game Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road. We excitedly speculated on what the logo for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory could mean for the series on the whole.

We were particularly excited to consider that Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory could be the long-rumored Kingdom Hearts tv series for Disney Plus, allegedly set to star the likes of Will Smith and Angelina Jolie.

Well, today we get our answer. Although it isn’t the Kingdom Hearts tv series we’re desperate to see, Melody of Memory at least looks to be a pretty cool video game!

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is a new rhythm game for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

Yes, after it was found within the Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road website, Melody of Memory has indeed been revealed as a rhythm game. Though gamers expecting a new core entry and Disney fans expecting a tv series may be disappointed, the Japanese trailer does look promising. Take a look:

The game looks to incorporate songs as the main mechanic, as well as the inclusion of all of the Disney characters that we’ve come to expect, including Hercules and Aladdin.

The 2020 trailer shows Sora, Goofy, and Donald making their way through layers of sheet music as they defeat enemies to the beat of classic songs from the Kingdom Hearts series.

While the gameplay may look pretty radical, we’re sure that this new rhythm game will offer a nice side-experience for fans of Kingdom Hearts 3 and the series in general. It’s unclear whether the game is concurrent to the third Kingdom Hearts game or whether it takes place after it. We’ll have to wait and see.

We’ll also have to wait for our long-awaited tv adaptation of the Kingdom Hearts game series, which for now remains a mystery.

Will you be playing this new Kingdom Hearts game? Did you think that the Melody of Memory logo was a new game, or a tv series? Let us know in the comments below.
