Project Xehanort Is Called Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road

Yesterday we learned that the Kingdom Hearts series was adding two new development teams to the fold, allowing for more experiences within the series. With that news confirmed, director Tetsuya Nomura also revealed that one of the new studios would have news soon about a new game.

This isn’t that news! Instead, this is a new project from the Kingdom Hearts Union X. The game is about how Xehanort and how he became the seeker of darkness.

In addition, there is a contest being held to name the game when it launches. It’s easy to enter, too!
