"Far, far away, in a fairy-tale realm...
The realm was filled with light.
That light gave birth to many worlds, enveloping them.
The source of the light, Kingdom Hearts, and the key that protected it, the χblade...
As long as they existed, it was believed that the realm would be in eternal light.
However, just as strong light will form a shadow, darkness was born.
The darkness called up fear, unease and craving.
Darkness, hidden deep in hearts, began to spread throughout the realm as chaos.
In order to drive back the spreading darkness, those who wished for light created Keyblades in imitation of the χblade, and embarked on adventures that spanned the realm."
KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] was first revealed at the Tokyo Game Show 2012 on September 19th, 2012. Players will create and customize their very own Keyblade-wielding avatar character to explore the Disney worlds, meeting various characters seen throughout the series such as Alice and the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Taking place during the infamous Keyblade War, this utilizes many RPG-style elements, as the player is seen exploring the worlds, defeating Heartless and opening treasures with their Keyblade.
Rather than lying within the same world that Sora and Riku's adventures take place in, KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] is more or less, a fairy tale. Players act as heroes wielding man-made Keyblades whose goal is to collect light, known after "Lux" in the game. Everyone has been divided into five groups, each fighting for the light. The player is a member of one of these groups, and we'll learn which will rise to the top above all others.
The basic version of this game is free of charge, and players can purchase additional in-game items with real-world money. KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] is outsourced to Success Inc.
