Square Enix announced two new “Kingdom Hearts” games, “Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link” and “Kingdom Hearts IV,” to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary.

“Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link” will be a closed beta coming to iOS and Android devices later this year but only in specific regions.

According to a press release, players will “embark on adventures from the realm of Scala ad Caelum into the real world… [and]l be able to engage in exhilarating battles against the Heartless and discover a new, original story.”

“Kingdom Hearts IV” has no platform or release date announced yet, but the press release hints at a new storyline called the “Lost Master Arc,” a new setting called Quadratum — an expansive city set in a realistic world “unlike anything ever seen before” — and “the first appearance of Strelitzia, a mysterious new character.”

“Kingdom Hearts III,” the direct predecessor to “Kingdom Hearts IV,” was released three years ago, in November 2019. The latest game in the franchise is “Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory,” a rhythm-based game released in November 2020.
