Kingdom Hearts 3's Re:Mind DLC Will Have New Difficulty Options

A fleshed-out photo mode is on the way, too.

It's been a while since Kingdom Hearts 3 finally landed on consoles, and its first major DLC still looms somewhere off in the distance. At a fan event in Osaka over the weekend, Square Enix finally let some more details slip about what the Re:Mind DLC will add to the game.

During a fan concert in Osaka, Japan, info was released about new modes and options coming with the DLC drop, collected via one Kingdom Hearts fan on Twitter. From the sounds of it, there will be a trailer next month, but among the new modes are two new difficulty options: Fast Pass Mode and "Black Code."

Fast Pass will reportedly let you breeze through enemies and use a bevy of abilities and Attraction skills. The Twitter user mentioned "at least seven" different spells and Attractions stacked up during the example. "Black Code," on the other hand, sounds similar to Critical Mode but with more sliders. You'll be able to choose how much health you have and tweak other restrictions as well. An example shown was a boss fight in the Frozen world where the player couldn't heal.

There were also details reportedly shown of a photo mode and slideshow mode with additional characters and effects, to add a little more character to the game's selfie-cam shots using in-universe phones. Another concertgoer corroborated the trailer dropping next month, alongside a release date for the DLC.

These new options join a long list of content already confirmed for the DLC, including the Re:Mind story and some new bosses. Looks like a lot of content is on the way for the major sequel that was years in the making. But really, any excuse to return to the world of Kingdom Hearts is a good one.
