Kingdom Hearts IV announced

Square Enix has revealed that Kingdom Hearts IV, the next mainline entry in the franchise, is currently in development.

The reveal trailer shows Sora in Quadratum, a city described as an “afterworld” by Strelitzia (a character only seen previously in the mobile game Kingdom Hearts Union X).

Compared to earlier entries, Kingdom Hearts IV has a much more realistic art style — even more so than The Caribbean in Kingdom Hearts III. According to interviews with development staff, this realistic style is due to the world Sora is in, and wont be the only one used during the game (thanks to Kingdom Hearts Insider for the English info).

Unsurprisingly, there’s no release window at this time — knowing Square Enix, we could be waiting a long time.

In the meantime, Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link, a new mobile title that was announced alongside Kingdom Hearts IV, is set to get a closed beta later this year. The previous mobile game, Kingdom Hearts Union X Dark Road, will also receive its final update this August.
