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.
Welcome to the official Twitter page for "Project Xehanort", an all-new KINGDOM HEARTS experience planned for Spring 2020!
