  • The game retains the gameplay found in Unchained χ,[9][please confirm] and all in-game data will be carried over.[10][please confirm]
  • Multiplayer is introduced. Players will be able to team up with up to five members of their Party and tackle special Quests together.[11][please confirm]
  • Theater Mode has been added, allowing players to view all story cutscenes they've experienced at any time.

  6. Famitsu Interview; Nomura: "Since we are considering developing this game overseas, we have adjusted it accordingly. When our testing team in America had Smartphone users play it, if they saw cards as they appeared in [KHX], they tended to think of it as the so called "card games". Although after having they play it for a while we had good reactions, the first impression of the game wasn't good. Since the first impression of a game is very important, we tried something other than cards."
  7. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ Twitter: As the aforementioned Itou-chan is the papa, now it's possible to switch genders at any time in character customisation. It's possible to change hair colour and the face and such too at any time during the game. With this, when you start, there will be no need to stress about taking your time, right?
