Series director Tetsuya Nomura has shared a message regarding the long awaited beta test for the upcoming mobile game, Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link.

Sorry it's been a while. We have not been able to open an official account for Missing-Link, so until we do, we will keep you informed here [Dark Road account]. The scheduled closed beta test will be a domestic prototype test for the purpose of synchronized verification. We'll start accepting applications soon, so please wait a little longer.

Given that the tweet was in Japanese, it’s a possibility.
But by that same token, we could end up getting an official translation later on the English KH accounts.

"Domestic" = "existing or occurring inside a particular country; not foreign or international".

So, yes.

There it is. Misleading. They should have removed the closed beta info from the non-Japan trailers.

Also I don’t have confidence in this game launching until late spring/early summer if they are sticking to a domestic closed beta with only one function in mind.

Do we know if it's Japan-exclusive?
Domestic = local so yeah it’s exclusive there.

well the english trailer still does say *limited to specific regions. i assume its going to be a raffle in Japan to get access to the CBT, like how they choose random people to go into the private events we find out about 12 months later lmao

But even that is false, though. Especially since it this is a domestic beta only xD unless NA and EU are going to announce something soon.

Yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised if it is a raffle as well. Specifically through SE Members.

I'm always glad to be proven wrong. Not only was I not expecting the beta to release by the end of the year, but I didn't even think SE would acknowledge it. Maybe I need to stop being so cynical🤔

So a Japanese-only closed beta, I guess that was to be expected anyway. How much time do you think will be between the Japanese and International release this time? Seven month again or even more? We'll see.

The symbol looks interesting, a mix between Scalean and Eraqus' sign, it's probably not connected to a new enemy. Since the connection to the Nobody symbol was kinda retconned by Dark Road this might be the next attempt.

It is shaped like a dandelion, so it is likely the emblem used by whatever organization Sigurd belongs to.

Book of Prophecies + Seven (as in seven lights) + Eraqus' Mark + Land of Departure + Dandelion...

The logo paints a detailed story of what it represents!

A new trailer for Ever Crisis revealed that the closed Beta for that game has been pushed all the way to next Summer. What (if anything) do you think this means for Missing Link?

I don't think it means much for Missing Link. The message left by Nomura seems to imply that they are gearing up for something soon, so I don't think he would have said that otherwise. Not to mention ML is likely being developed by a different team than EC, so I can't imagine there would be any effect there.
