Kingdom Hearts: Missing Link receives 2024 release date with beta registration now open
Square Enix has announced that the mobile spin-off Kingdom Hearts: Missing Link will arrive next year, with UK and Australian fans now able to sign up for its closed beta.
More than a year after its original reveal trailer, Square Enix has finally released a new teaser trailer for the mobile title. The short video showcases the game's characters, including the customizable player character, Disney and original worlds, and some of its menu systems, including a world map that appears to tie into the game's GPS-based gameplay.
Along with the trailer, Square has opened registration for the game's upcoming iOS closed beta for those in the UK or Australia. The test will take place between November 29 and December 8, and progress will not be carried over to the final release. There is currently no word on tests for other regions; however, Square has confirmed that the Android closed beta will begin sometime in January 2024.
It has also been confirmed that players can use PlayStation and Xbox controllers with full Bluetooth support during the test, and judging from the small snippets of combat, which appear to be similar to Kingdom Hearts III, the game will be a perfect fit for a more traditional control scheme.
