KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ [Cross] expansion to bring Ventus, Multiplayer, and more!

The world of Daybreak Town is expanding.

Coming soon Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ will be rebranded KINGDOM HEARTS UNION χ [Cross] which will further expand the mythology of the series as well as introducing Ventus into the game. Multiplayer will also be arriving, which advertises 6 players joining together on missions to take down the Heartless.

The Japanese version will be updated in late March, whereas the Global version can expect this next month in April. 

With Kingdom Hearts: Union χ, players can create teams of six from their party members or through a matchmaking feature to fight hordes of Heartless enemies and powerful bosses. Players can also take on quests of increasing difficulty as well as unique new missions. To help these teams of friends communicate with each other, the game will now include emotes and text bubbles. Players will encounter both familiar and new faces as the story of the Unions continues to unfold, and the new “Theater Mode” will allow players to relive the drama and rewatch cutscenes.

You can pre-register for the update here: [Japanese Version] [Global Version]

 

 

Update: Additionally, Unchained X Japan updated with 5 new missions, featuring the scenes shown in the trailer above. Translations will be available as soon as possible.

I've got a rough translation of the cutscenes in the trailer.

How exactly is the pre-registration supposed to work? I've already got the app.

Thanks for translating!!

The memories of tragedy aren't needed for the future. Here and in other worlds, we will experience a time without sadness.
this really just makes it sound like unchained is getting scrapped and a new continuity is starting unconnected to khx lol

like it's basically making entirely new union leaders and everything :s

They clarify at the end of the notice in-app that all your progress (medals, items, equipment, levels, etc.) will carry over into Union χ

Are you kidding? This is one of the best titles to date since Birth by Sleep. The context makes sense and it's not a chore to pronounce.

At this point, I think Nomura has just been trying to outdo himself with the confusing plot elements with each new installment since Coded. Coded, DDD, Chi, Unchained Chi, and now Union Cross. It just gets weirder and weirder as it goes forward. I honestly don't know where they're going with this. It's somehow gone from a mostly simplistic plot on PC to an interdimensional multiverse on smartphones.

I would certainly hope so. The amount of backlash if they didn't would be catastrophic.

Well, [cross] could stand literally for "crossing" as in either the events/people of the X-era crossing with the events/people of the present day KH, which is arguably already happening in some form or meaning to "cross over" into the "outside world" the Dandelions are supposed to flee/relocate to once the true war (which happens in Browser Chi) starts.

It may even mean both of those at the same time as Nomura has a knack for choosing words in titles that have multiple meanings.
Going by "Union cross" in full term it might also mean that the five unions will finally work together and search for the true enemy rather than compete with each other. If there are new leaders they are not bound to the "rules" set by the Master of Masters for the original Foretellers and they can choose different paths and approaches.

Considering Ven's appearance though I'm wondering if Ephemer and/or Skuld will notice that, hey, you kinda look like one of the guys depicted on our medals.

Ventus?! This is so cool! And if he's connected to the dandelions then no wonder Sora has the Keyblade ability, connections and special power! Ven is inside his heart, so he is basically caught up tight in the middle of it, whether he is aware of this or not, and we all know he's not. (laughs) I like this information! I'm getting closer to understanding what the power of waking Sora must learn in KH III is all about nownow. I wonder though... Could the as said "power of waking" in fact be the "key to return hearts" we've heard about long ago that Sora and his friends are looking for? I think it's very likely. ^^
