The statement didn’t include a revised release date but revealed that another announcement related to the game is set to arrive in early June, and we’ll be sure to update you when that lands.Square Enix revealed some details about the game in February alongside some screenshots, noting that the game will offer “exhilarating, high speed battles that depend on reflexes.”
The game was originally known as Project Xehanort and will live within the popular Kingdom Hearts Union χ [Cross] app as a standalone experience. Players will be able to uncover Kingdom Hearts villain Xehanort’s past and learn why he became the seeker of darkness.
It appears to be an action-card game of some kind. While you don’t have to play Union χ [Cross] to play Dark Road, there will be benefits for trying both: “The more complete your KHUX Medal Album is,” reads a news post, “the more points you can earn in KHDR to trade in for Cards to be used in battle”.
The game will land on iOS, Android and Amazon devices when it launches inside Union χ [Cross] later this year. For more on Kingdom Hearts, check out our review of the long-awaited third full instalment, Kingdom Hearts 3.
