Square Enix unveiled Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory earlier this summer. This particular adventure in the magical universe is a rhythm game, one that will feature dozens upon dozens of beloved tracks. In fact, the tracklist includes more than 140 songs from the Kingdom Hearts franchise, Disney, and more. Apparently, the game itself will allow players to “enjoy rhythm-based action through unforgettable music.” Said action is set to take shape across four different modes. The upcoming playable demo should shed more light on what exactly the full experience entails.
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory will release on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in Japan on November 11th. A release in western territories is scheduled to follow a couple of days later on November 13th.
