Square Enix Bridge has recently updated with various exciting announcements for the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ to celebrate its first anniversary.

Some of the announcements include new worlds including what seems to be Castle of Dreams and the announcement that one of the worlds will be from a Disney world that has not been previously included in any Kingdom Hearts game thus far. Another announcement also includes the introduction of new multiplayer modes.

Last but not least, it was also confirmed that it was Ventus in the art that was released for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]'s 3rd anniversary. Spoilers for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]'s Final and Special episodes follow:

That thumbnail looks like an original world than anything else. If it's talking about that. Either way, I'm so interested where the story is going.

This new multiplayer mode looks alot lìke co-op, like in 358/2 days. HYPE. Brand new world? Starting to believe more and more that Season 2 takes place during KH3! :D

It should've been obvious that that was Ventus in that art! Anybody who knows the difference between Roxas and Ventus should have already known this. Just saying.

Hmmm now I have to delete loads of photos to find a gig of space for ux again, and I'll be starting from the beginning great >.<

Multiplayer sounds nice though

Actually, I'm thinking that it'll either be Pocahontas or Hawaii from Lilo and Stitch (as Pranksters Paradise was treated as a new world in Dream Drop Distance).

Hawaii might be a possibility, at least it seems hard to apply it to KH3 or other future games since BBS has Deep Space, which is right before the movie, and it's been 12 years since BBS in-universe (and yeah, time passes differently in different worlds, but I imagine not that much). KHUX might be the only place to get the ACTUAL Lilo and Stitch story (which I really, really want because I love the movie), and it would look cute. But Jungle Book has been considered for so many games, it seems like the safest bet.

We're both just guessing, but what's your logic behind these choices?
 

I'm betting this new world will also feature in KH3 as well, so I picked the two I thought had the highest chances of being in KH3.

They could always just "Time flows differently in different worlds" it.

I'd suggest everyone reads KHI's translation of the article as well, as some implications sound a bit different, and we never know. Either way, I'm really excited for co-op and the new world, not to mention, apparently Ventus has a connection to KHX after all!

This is all just really interesting!

Ventus being the one in the Key Art?  Big story developments?  Co-op mode?  A new Disney world we've yet to see in the KH series!?  GOOD GOOD, SO MUCH NEWS, SO MUCH HYPE!!!! X_X

 

Thanks for this article, Sora'spromise! :3

 

Wow, but this is all very interesting! I can't wait for us to get to Season 2, because I'm sure we'll get very exciting and shocking revelations along the way!  Just the fact alone that Ventus relates to X at all is a big wow factor!  I wonder how he fits into all of this!?  GAHHH, THE HYPE! X_X
