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.
