Despite the delay back in May 2020, Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road is finally available for iOS, Android, and Amazon devices. The mobile game, however, is not an independent title in the App Store; it exists as an update within the previous release of Kingdom Hearts Union X[Cross]. If interested in playing just the newest update, users can still participate in the adventure without the worry to finish the original game.
Unlike X[Cross], Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road revolves around the long-running character, Xehanort, of the whole franchise. As he continues his studies at the City of Keyblade Wielders, Xehanort goes on his adventure with his peers – Urd, Hermand, Bragi, Vor, and Eraqus – to discover his past events. During their journey, they encounter a mysterious and eerie character that causes Xehanort to become the Seeker of Darkness. As a result, this question in his decision to enter darkness inevitably explores the story of his youth.
As part of the journey, users can also engage in new, various systems. In story mode, Xehanort can form parties with new characters and experience his life’s story. In addition, users can exercise their skills and reflexes with a deck of 30 cards to engage in strategic story battles and level it up manually or through auto-mode. Similarly, users can engage in battle mode and put their card swiping and flicking skills to the test. Users can go against strong enemies with a team, which allows members to empower each with stat boosts. Once enemies are defeated, users can catalog enemy information to keep track of previous battles. Other than story and battle mode, users can participate in specific challenges and missions for maximum gameplay experience.
