With the clock is winding down to the game's release, Famitsu elaborates on the gameplay changes being made to the game, such as strengthening Keyblades and avatar customization.
The feature also contains new information about the Avatar Board messaging system. Clearing stages in the game will allow players to earn Avatar coins, which can be redeemed for costumes and abilities.

A smartphone title comes to the KINGDOM HEARTS series for the first time. Determined to be released in September!
Prepare for the things you can do in the game
In the earliest event in the KINGDOM HEARTS timeline, KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained Chi draws on the history of the Keyblade War which is planned for release in September. This title is currently accepting pre-registrations. Concerning the basic system and game flow, the reporter will share new information found while playing.
First, create your player avatar!
Once you create your avatar in the beginning, select a union you want to belong to. It’s possible to change it later but changing unions will require Jewels (in-game currency).
Prepare for an adventure in Daybreak Town
For Keyblade wielders, Daybreak Town is a hub for players. Here, you can do Keyblade customizations, confirm your ranking, shop for “Medals”, and party member conversations can be performed. Up to 30 people max, it’s possible to join parties, and team up to challenge Raid Bosses. You can form a party that matches your play style.
Play frequency, party rules, and so forth. You can recruit members into your party and you can also look to see which ones you can participate in.
It’s possible to exchange messages between party members in chat.
Party members can exchange information and stamps are also available.
After clearing stages you can obtain Avatar Coins, avatar abilities and costumes in the “Avatar Board” can be obtained.
Continue strengthening your Keyblade and Medals
In battle, it was previously reported that medals are set in the Keyblade in order to fight. The medals have rarities, attributes, cost, ability, default skills & statuses, can be leveled through synthesis, and when you put a specific medal, its rarity can be increased. Continue to use and train your favorite medals.
When its rarity increases, its performance also does, and even its appearance can be changed.
Medal levels can be increased by synthesizing it with other medals. Munny is important for synthesis and evolution.
Strengthening the Keyblade can also change its appearance
Materials can be obtained from quest rewards used to strengthen the Keyblade. When it reaches a certain level, a medal can be placed in an unlocked slot.
You can quickly play quests smoothly
In the game, you must continue to clear quests in order to progress. Each quest becomes clear when you defeat a specified enemy. In regards to playing for a short time, I’m glad that I can play it casually. In addition, there are three challenge settings per quest and you can win rewards for those achievements. This has become a speedrunning element.
Exhilarating battles with easy controls
Tap to use a simple attack and flick to use a range attack. Powerful abilities come from medals the way they are commanded.
In the field, your avatar will move to the position where you touch. Touching an area that glitters near your Avatar, you can obtain materials depending on the location.
Casually explore the area
Quests are lined up on the bottom of the screen, and choose one you want to challenge. Details of the Target’s attributes and challenge are shown in advance and you can see if your equipment is suitable for battle.
Get rewards for clearing!
When you clear a quest, you obtain the challenge’s rewards. You can also earn a title.
Raid Boss appears after trying to complete quest
A Raid Boss suddenly appears and it interferes with the quest progression. Until it disappears under a certain time, it’s not possible to exploit the quest.
There are benefits for defeating it. Have strong party members take it down.
