Well, Kingdom Hearts on mobile is clearly profitable enough for them to run another game simultaeneously with Union Cross.

This is still dissapointing news to me though.

I feel like I'm going to piss myself at how cheap Squênix has become. Well, guess we might finally find out more about Scala now.

I can't help but feel disappointed. Union X is in dire need of a console remake; this is a step in the opposite direction.

Nevertheless, hard not to be stoked about a Xehanort prequel. Let's hope we actually get some proper cutscenes out of it.

Damn it. Another mobile game? Really???
Can this at least mean that Union X is coming to an end? Please?
I was really, really praying the next game would be console. I would have even preferred going handheld again over this. I can't take another chibi-modeled pay-to-win cash cow. And more mobile games just mean more games that the vast majority of people won't bother playing (like with Union X), which means the next games are going to have to keep pulling double duty by catching normies up on what happens in them. And that'll only make people resent/ignore the series even more. I think these mobile games are only good for short-term profit, but really bad for the series in the long run.

Will be interesting to see what it looks like. UX has gotten really stale, and it honestly feels like it's gonna end in the near future.

Hopefully events and story in this are handled like FateGO and less like Fire Emblem Heroes.

The excitement for Xehanort to the disappointment for mobile was real. Still, I'm glad they're doing it in some form. If it's gacha trash like UX though, man that would suck.

I highly doubt it’ll be the case, but it’d be nice if this is a game we pay for upfront rather than relying on gacha mechanics for a profit. I really want to see what a KH mobile game could be without having the story dragged down by greedy corporate practices. But I guess I should settle for hoping it’s not an attempt at a Kingdom Hearts AR game. Lol

That said, I’m absolutely excited to see more of Xehanort and Eraqus’ story told. I just hope it doesn’t take 5+ years to tell it.

I never really considered the possibility of UX ending relatively soon while this game take it's place, but it definitely could happen.
Replace Daybreak Town for Scala Ad Caelum and the unions for different Keyblade Masters and we might be on to something here.

It does seem like UX's story is reaching an end so I guess this makes sense, but it makes me wonder if that means the UX service will be ending too because that would be annoying for everyone who has spent so much time on that game..

But hopefully the gameplay for this will take a whole new direction! Excited to see who the other characters in this game will be + getting to see more Scala. Also I wonder if this means UX will have an ending that relates to the creation of Scala. Also also wasn't UX supposed to get a story update?? I've been dying to see what happens next!

One of the characters in the background if the artwork is wearing a similar outfit to Aqua. Kinda cool to see a parallel for her like Terra has with Young Eraqus.

Chi stayed online for a while after it ended, so I assume UX will stay up for a bit.

Well this should be interesting. While I'm all for exploring his past please keep him dead in the present

Why are some disappointed that this is a mobile title? Mobile games can have good storytelling.
Oh, they definitely can. The actual issue is the pacing of the updates. But nothing confirms that this game is going to be like UX so we are definitely overreacting here.

While I am a tad disappointed myself that it is another mobile game, I am really excited to get a glimpse into Xehanort's background. I just REALLY hope that this game does not end up being as ridiculously P2W as UX ended up being. I'd like to actually be able to play this game and enjoy it.
