Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, the first rhythm-action game in the hit RPG series, releases on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch today, giving gamers the chance to re-live the soundtrack of the mainline games and its many spin-offs (even though EVERYONE knows that Kingdom Hearts doesn’t have spin-offs… everything’s important to the story). Check out the launch trailer below:
In Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, players will relive their favorite moments from the series as they journey alongside Sora, Donald and Goofy, along with other familiar Kingdom Hearts characters. As players travel through iconic Disney worlds, they will join forces with beloved Disney characters along the way. Players can master more than 140 musical tracks, including favorites like “Destiny Islands,” “Hand in Hand,” “Working Together” from Yoko Shimomura, as well as classic songs from Disney’s cinematic universes.
Whether alone or with friends and family via local co-op and online multiplayer, players will bounce and bop to the beat of the exhilarating Kingdom Hearts soundtrack to defeat tough enemies and bosses. The game offers three different play styles so players of all ages and skill levels can enjoy their magical musical adventure in Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. Players can casually explore all the worlds and tracks with One Button mode, or really showcase their prowess with the frenetic “Performer” mode for more fast-paced and skillful combo sets. Along the way, players will unlock and collect iconic story scenes from across the entire Kingdom Hearts saga, to be enjoyed in the game’s Museum. Competitive Online Battle modes mix up the formula even further, with special tricks to confound your opponents. Players of the Nintendo Switch version can also participate in a Free-for-All battle mode with up to seven other players via local play.
As a big fan of the Final Fantasy Theatrhythm series, I’ve been eagerly anticipating Kingdom Hearts’ foray into rhythm-based gameplay – the series has one of the BEST soundtracks in RPG history… I can’t wait to play Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory.
