Square Enix is teasing an update on Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link nearly ten months after the Japanese closed beta test. The new Kingdom Hearts mobile game will detail the events between Kingdom Hearts Union X and Kingdom Hearts Dark Road.
In January 2023, Square Enix revealed that Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link will have location-based raid battles, which are somewhat reminiscent to those in Pokemon GO. News has been scarce ever since then, but it appears that more news is on the way due to a new post from the game’s official Twitter account.
Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link Update Coming Soon
The official Twitter account for Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link revealed a new teaser image with the hashtag #KHML. The image appears to show some sort of factory or workplace within Scala ad Caelum, which was built on top of the ruins of Daybreak Town. Moreover, the Twitter account’s header has been changed for the first time in nearly a year. The Twitter header also shows a clear render of Scala ad Caelum with the official logo of Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link.

Update – 10/25: The North American Kingdom Hearts Union X Twitter account changes its name to Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link ahead of a potential update.
Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link was revealed alongside the highly-anticipated Kingdom Hearts IV during the 20th anniversary event in April 2022. Kingdom Hearts IV marks the beginning of the Lost Master arc, which is the “second phase” of the Kingdom Hearts series. Sora will explore the mysterious city of Quadratum, which is located in a separate universe regarded as “fiction” to the traditional Kingdom Hearts universe.
A closed beta test for Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link was held in Japan from January 13 to January 18. Sign-ups for the beta were live the month prior in December 2022. The beta was exclusive to roughly 1000 Japanese players on iOS. A beta is planned for the west, however.
Lastly, Kingdom Hearts Missing-Link is coming soon to Android and iOS worldwide. Kingdom Hearts IV is currently in development for unannounced platforms.
