Kingdom Hearts X[chi] updated on March 3 with several new scenes expanding the main story. This update introduced a brand new character, Skuld, a female Keyblade wielder. It also continues to tease the conflict between the 5 Foretellers, as well as the clash between darkness and light.
We've put together a transcript of the events that took place, with translations thanks to goldpanner.
Edit: English subtitled videos are now available.
The rest of this article contains massive spoilers for the events of Kingdom Hearts X[chi] and Unchained X.
Scene 1: An encounter with Skuld
(You and Chirithy exit out of a Dark Corridor into Daybreak Town, Fountain Plaza)
Chirithy: Nice job.
(You let out a sigh.)
Chirithy: I know, gathering Lux has been pretty tough lately, hasn't it?
Chirithy: No, it's just how it is. All the Unions are really going at it hard with gathering right now.
(A voice calls out.)
???: I wonder why we're competing?
(You turn around in surprise. A scowling girl wielding a Keyblade appears out of a portal to confront you)
???: All the Unions share the same goal: to protect the light. But we've found ourselves wanting to rise above the others, to gather more light than the others. At some point our goal changed, didn't it? It isn't right.
(Chirithy approaches the girl.)
Chirithy: Who are you?
(The girl smiles and dismisses her Keyblade, and sits at the edge of the fountain right beside you. You’re surprised by her advancement and change in demeanor.)
Skuld: I'm Skuld. You're [Player], aren't you?
Skuld: Nice to meet you.
(You shake hands and sit beside her.)
Skuld: By the way, do you know someone called Ephemera?
(You and Chirithy are shocked that she knows of Ephemera.)
Skuld: I guess you're wondering why I'd say that. I was in the same party as him.
Well, that said, it was back when I'd only just become a Keyblade Wielder. He's a bit of a strange one, and after a while, one day he quit the party.
Now, and this is where it gets real, okay, just the other day, he appeared in my dreams, and told me to go with you.
Skuld: I wonder? I've brushed with him several times even after he left the party, but we never moved past the level of exchanging basic greetings, so I have no idea why he'd appear in my dreams either.
As you can imagine, I don't know his reasons for telling me to go with you, either. Actually, I came here hoping that if I asked you you'd know something.
(You mention your dream about Ephemera.)
Skuld: Huh? He appeared in your dreams, too?
Did he say anything? What sort of dream was it?
(You explain. Skuld seems upset.)
Skuld: Oh… that's… He told you he was waiting, then…
(She hops off the fountain.)
Skuld: What about going to the place you were meant to go with Ephemera one more time with me?
(You're surprised by her request.)
Chirithy: No, you can't! Lady Ava told you to stay away from there!
Skuld: She told you to stay away specifically because there's something there, then, right? I'm sure this is what Ephemera meant when he told me expressly to go with you.
And, one more thing--
(A huge boom sounds in the distance and the ground shakes, interrupting you. You all turn in that direction, shocked and confused.)
Chirithy: That sounded close, didn't it...
(Skuld summons her Keyblade.)
Skuld: I'll go and check it out!
(She runs off. You summon your Keyblade and chase after her, leaving Chirithy behind.)
Chirithy: Huh? Huh?
Scene 2: Battle Between Foretellers
(You all run into the town and gaze up at the rooftops to see the Anguis and Ursus Foretellers fighting against each other.)
Skuld: Why would Foretellers be fighting amongst themselves?
(You and Chirithy turn to Skuld, not answering.)
Skuld: What Ephemera was saying is true after all...
(Her words take you aback.)
Skuld: What I was about to say before. Actually, Ephemera said one more thing to me at the end of the dream.
He said the end of the world is near...
Chirithy: What does that mean?
Skuld: I don't know. But, an ending would come suddenly, without prior warning. The same way Ephemera vanished.
(You think for a moment, and make your decision.)
Player: Let's go.
(Skuld and Chirithy are surprised.)
(Skuld smiles and nods.)
(You and Skuld head off.)
Scene 3: Mysterious Black Garment
(You and Skuld run into town. A portal opens in front of you and strange dark creatures appear from it to block your way.)
(One by one, the creatures approach you.)
Creature 1: …..ux….
Creature 2: …...Lux….
Creature 3: Give us….lux….
(You and Skuld prepare to fight.)
Skuld: What are you!
Creature 1: Hand the Lux over!
Scene 4: Nightmare
(You manage to push the creatures back and force them to retreat. Before you can chase them down, Nightmare Chirithy appears before you.)
Chirithy: Who are you?
Nightmare Chirithy: Hey.
(Chirithy recognizes the Nightmare, as the Chirithy who had been meddling with you before.)
Nightmare Chirithy: In the end Lux is the source of the fighting, so I think you'd better just hand it over to us.
Oh well, you can hang on to it a little longer if you like.
(Chirithy steps forward, still in disbelief.)
(The Nightmare shows off his new form proudly. Chirithy is upset.)
Nightmare Chirithy: What do you think of my new form?
Chirithy: The darkness has completely tainted you, hasn't it...
Skuld: By the darkness...
Nightmare Chirithy: Why do you hate the darkness so much? Just like the world has night and day, you guys have light and darkness inside you.
What are you afraid of?
Chirithy: Those three just now, they used to be human, didn't they...
Nightmare Chirithy: Yep.
(You and Skuld are horrified.)
Player & Skuld: ！
Skuld: Keyblade Wielders… like us?
Nightmare Chirithy: Weak-hearted people fear the darkness, and get swallowed up by it. Accept the darkness, control the darkness, and you can gain true strength.
Those guys aren't using fragments of the Foreteller's power, like you are. They fought you with their own abilities, you know?
Chirithy: This isn't the Master's teaching...
Nightmare Chirithy: Teaching? That's got nothing to do with this.
The truth about the world isn't something you can just be taught by someone. It's something you learn for yourself.
Chirithy: Who on earth is your player?
Nightmare Chirithy: Heh heh heh… They're close by, you'll find out soon enough.
(The Nightmare disappears.)
