In case you missed it, Kingdom Hearts X is an in-browser game that was released by Square Enix and Success Corporation for free online play back in 2013. The game was intended to be a beginners kind of experience designed to introduce newcomers to the Kingdom Hearts universe. Now this stylish adventure is the first game of the series to find its way to Android as Kingdom Hearts Unchained X.
As per Kingdom Hearts standard protocol, this game sees you wielding an enormous key as a weapon as you battle through familiar baddies from the Disney universe while finding allies such as Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck. In terms of genre, the game is an RPG, with weapon and equipment upgrades being essential to succeed. Some are already decrying this as the weak point in the game, since it can at times veer into pay-to-win territory. Getting those upgrades is a grind, and the game is quick to remind you that in-app purchases range from a buck to $100 are conveniently available to make you into the warrior you’ve always wanted to be.
Perhaps the arrival of Kingdom Hearts Unchained X on the mobile device is a good sign. Maybe if it’s well received, we’ll eventually see ports of the two main games arriving on our smartphones. Although Unchained X is an enjoyable way to pass the time, it doesn’t come close to the depth of storytelling and sheer fun that its Playstation forerunners offered.
