Kingdom Hearts 4 Release Date: Gameplay, System Requirement, Platforms, News, And More Details

Square Enix and Disney confirmed Kingdom Hearts 4 on Sunday, April 10. It will be the first Kingdom Hearts game since 2019’s Kingdom Hearts 3.

In 2022, Square Enix and Disney will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first Kingdom Hearts game with three new releases. The next major installment of the Kingdom Hearts series has officially been presented in a trailer, much to the delight of fans. Here’s all we know so far about Kingdom Hearts 4.

Kingdom Hearts 4 Release Date

The release date for Kingdom Hearts 4 is presently unknown. Because the game was only recently revealed, it’s safe to presume that it won’t be released for at least another two years.

While there is generally a three-year gap among major Kingdom Hearts games, Kingdom Hearts 4 is unlikely to be released this year, especially given the pandemic’s aftermath. It’s more likely that the game will be released in 2023.

Kingdom Hearts 4 Gameplay

A big portion of the trailer was constructed to look like gameplay, but that’s difficult to believe given how wonderful it looked. We expect a lot of adjustments between now and the final result, but it’s safe to say major things are on the way.

As expected, Nomura has revealed that the flat in Quadratum where Sora is resting would serve as the game’s hub, at least for the first few chapters. This region is located in Minami-Aoyama, which is located outside of Shibuya.

To begin with, the slow-motion movement style from Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts III is back, but this time it’s even smoother. Sora glides around the city environment by leaping, spinning, sliding, and even using his Keyblade as a grappling hook.

Quicktime events, or response instructions, appear to be resurfacing. Sora deflects the big heartless’ punch by converting his Keyblade into a drill, implying that shape alterations will return, and then firing it like a missile.

Unfortunately, we don’t get to see the entire fight, but the scale and spectacle appear to be unparalleled.

The UI is also visible, although it appears to be identical to that of Kingdom Hearts III, leading us to suspect it is only a temporary solution. Unfortunately, we are unable to read any of the content on the user interface, so if there is anything intriguing there, please accept our apologies.

Aside from Quadratum, that wooded area is the only other world we observe. Viewers with keen eyes noticed an odd element in an image of the river that resembles the foot of an AT-AT, the Star Wars series’ mechanized marching tanks. This was the first time the Kingdom Hearts game has crossed over with that brand, although it is very plausible given that it is a Disney product. Again, no worlds outside of Quadratum have been confirmed, but it’s plausible that Sora will receive his first lightsaber Keyblade. Look at the upper right corner of the above screenshot to see for yourself.

Nomura also confirms the return of KH2’s reaction orders as part of a new scrap and build’ system for the game’s combat cycle, and states that the concept of Quadratum being a fictional world to Sora and his pals will be explored in Kingdom Hearts 4.
