Square Enix Says Two New Teams are Working on Kingdom Hearts Projects

Plus, we'll get a new announcement from the Union χ team tomorrow.

With only a day to go before the public gets its hands on the Kingdom Hearts 3 Re Mind DLC, Square Enix is giving out some tantalizing new details on where the series will go next. Apparently fans won't have to wait very long for more, as two new teams are working on Kingdom Hearts projects and one of those titles is nearing its debut.

In a new "13 Questions of Darkness" Q&A posted to the official Japanese Twitter account for the series (translation via Gematsu), Square Enix says that two new teams separate from the Kingdom Hearts 3 team and the developers for Kingdom Hearts Union χ "are currently at work, and one of their titles is coming surprisingly soon." At the moment, Square Enix isn't giving away details on the scope of either new project or on what platforms they're headed to.

The Kingdom Hearts Union χ team is also set to make an "unexpected" announcement tomorrow, the day of Re Mind's release. That's the extent of the tease, so the Union χ team's announcement could be anything from an update to the Android and iOS spin-off to something entirely new.

Lastly, the Q&A confirms that Re Mind is planned to be Kingdom Heart 3's only piece of substantial DLC. Early looks at the DLC indicated that it'll be something of an epilogue for the main game, and with the Kingdom Hearts 3 team now "already working on the next title," it seems extremely likely that Re Mind will set up that next installment.

Re Mind will launch on January 23 for the PlayStation 4 and on February 25 for the Xbox One. For more on Kingdom Hearts 3, check out USG's extensive guides section for tips, collectible locations, and even a list of all the Keyblades you can find.
