Not even a week after the Japanese release of Kingdom Hearts -HD 1.5 ReMIX- and we already have some news for the next future game for the series, KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi].
It appears that the Beta invites for KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi], accessible through Yahoo Games, have started to be emailed to various recipients. As the beta appears to begin on the 22nd of March, hopefully we will hear some more of the new features in the game soon!

The KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] website also recieved a small update this evening, saying that the game is "coming soon". How soon is unknown at this point, but hopefully we will get to see what glory the game holds! You can view the games terms and agreements here, and the requirements here!
Edit: Thanks to forum member Roxas72 and translator Goldpanner, we have translations of the Beta email!
We would to thank you on this occasion for applying to participate in the KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] Closed Beta Test. As a result of a strictly impartial lottery, you have been selected to be a tester in the Closed Beta Test (hereon CBT) scheduled to commence at 3pm on the 22nd March (Fri). Congratulations!!
Please access the official KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] website (http://kingdomhearts.jp/) and log in with the Yahoo!Japan ID and password that you registered in your application.
The CBT is scheduled to run from 3pm on the 22nd March (Fri) until 3pm on the 25th March.
The idea of this CBT is to have you play a section of KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] for us in advance. We truly hope that you enjoy it, and we would be very happy if we could receive your opinions after you have played.
First, you are to create your own avatar, and assemble a team of up to a maximum of 30 people. (The composition of teams will be assigned automatically.) For the duration of the CBT, you will be competing with assigned opposing teams to obtain and pool fragments of light called Lux. Every day there will be a tally to determine which team has pooled the most Lux, and the victors will be awarded a prize.
- Collect raw materials from the field ⇒ use to enhance your Keyblade.
- Battle enemies ⇒ experience points (necessary to level up), potentially obtain cards, Lux etc.
- Collect cards from treasure chests ⇒ obtain cards that will increase hit points during battle.
- Card Draw ⇒ obtain cards necessary to execute attacks in battle.
- Boss Raid ⇒ co-operate with your team to defeat bosses for a chance to earn large quantities of Lux.
Set your sights on making use of card synthesis and Keyblade enhancement in order to gather even more Lux to be victorious!
The KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] official website (http://kingdomhearts.jp/) and KINGDOM HEARTS χ[chi] official twitter (https://twitter.com/_KINGDOMHEARTS) will be updated as necessary.
