Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory Game and 2nd Phase Announcements


Square Enix has just announced a couple of new Kingdom Hearts games that will be coming out later this year in their “2nd Phase” Announcements.

First up is the new game that is coming out later in 2020. It will be called Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory and will be a rhythm game that will be released on the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

We here at PNP are big Kingdom Hearts fans, our daughter’s name is even Kairi, so we were quite excited to hear about this new game!

The game will done in a rhythm format similar to what Square Enix did with the Final Fantasy Theatrhythm. So a role-play/rhythm based game that progresses with the music. I sounds like a fun game that isn’t as deep as what we get with the normal Kingdom Hearts games.

What’s really cool about the game is that it will feature a lot of the characters from the games like Donald, Sora, Goofy, Hercules, Riku, Kairi and more.

Here’s the trailer!

There was also a trailer released for Kingdom Hearts 2020, Phase 2:

In this trailer we see coverage of “… what Square Enix is calling “Kingdom Hearts series 2nd Phase,” which has Kingdom Hearts 3: Re:Mind, Kingdom Hearts Dark Road, and Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. There are also two empty spaces, which could be a new entry, re-releases on Nintendo Switch, next-gen ports, or really anything.” -IGN

There will be another game releasing this year called Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road. The issue is that this is a Japan release that will launch to Android and iOS. This game will be released on June 22nd (in Japan only,) but hopefully it will eventually release over here. But I’m glad we are getting the Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory game because it looks like a lot of fun.
