Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is Coming to Consoles Later This Year

Surprise! A brand-new Kingdom Hearts game is coming this year, and it might not be what you think.

With the recent announcement of Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road on mobile devices, it’s clear that Square-Enix has no intention of winding up the franchise following Kingdom Hearts 3’s DLC, Re:Mind, released back in January. 

We’ve seen our share of series spin-offs before but few were expecting today’s announcement of Kingdom Hearts: Melody Of Memory, confirmed for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year.

Revealed via a trailer on the Japanese Square Enix YouTube channel, Melody Of Memory is another departure from the RPG franchise, and this time, it looks to be a rhythm game. Not too dissimilar to previous Square Enix title Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, Melody of Memory takes place over a set of mini-games, promising to include 140 songs. 

There’s not much to go on from the trailer, but Melody of Memory appears to revisit classic worlds and will link up with Re:Mind’s story, adding a new layer to an already convoluted timeline.

Further details through the official website confirm multiple playable characters and four modes of play, including online battles. Just how this turns out remains to be seen, but stay tuned to GameSkinny for more information as it comes in.
