• Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ coming to iOS and Android in North America... TOMORROW!

    I know everybody's still thinking about FFXV after the Uncovered event, but there's one game that is coming out much sooner - Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ. And you'll be able to try it as early as Thursday, April 7th - that's tomorrow! Well, as long as you live in North America and have an iOS or Android device.

    The official Square-Enix blog recently announced that the localized version of this mobile game is now coming out in the West. The game focuses on a group of Keyblade weilders long before the events of Birth By Sleep - before the mythical Keyblade War. You play a customized player avatar and get to take part in adventures across multiple words, joining factions, and interacting with other players. Tetsuya Nomura has stated that, while the story is integral to the events of Sora's adventure, it can be experienced to its fullest even if going in blind, due to how detached it is from the rest of the series timeline-wise.

    No word as of yet on a European release, though considering SE's current trend regarding Mobile releases, I think it is sage to assume us Old Continent-dwellers will get access to this game soon enough.

    Are you excited for Unchained χ? Will you be downloading it tomorrow? Let us know!

      Yeah, you need to be connected to the Internet to play. A component of the battle system is sharing medals with other players.

      Not sure how to add people on it but my character is Mayrissa in the Vulpines (I think)

      I'm in Vulpes, too. It's definitely the most popular of the unions

      As far as I understand, you don't have a traditional friends list. You can form a party with people who are in the same Union as you. I think you can either look them up by their user ID or their ranking, but I'm not sure how to do that yet. Also, you can only be in one party.

      So judging by the union choices in this thread so far, here's what you need to do to play with other EoFFers:

      You need to be in Vulpes, the fox/wolf. One of us has to start a Party, which can be found in the games "Other" menu. Then, people would have to post their user ID here so the party leader can add them.

      Being in a party has 3 benefits I know of:

      1. There's a chat box on the home page where your party can talk

      2. When you go on missions, you have access to your party members best medals to use in battle. If you go to your medal menu and hit "share" on your best medal, players from around the world will be able to use it. Being in a party ensures that your friends medal always show up in the list you choose from.

      3. You occasionally run into "raid bosses" that show up on the missions menu. If you lose to them, your party members who are online get a notification saying they can help fight the boss.

      It's a lot to take in, but once you get a feel for the game and get used to the menus, a lot more of the stuff in this post will make sense.

      As for me, I was randomly given a party request from a stranger. It's worked out well for me so far and having the medals of top players is a definite benefit. I've made friends out of it, as well.

      Ill be happy to answer any questions.

      If you can figure out how to add me from that, have at it!

      I went ahead and asked my party if I could give them the IDs of people who joined at the EU launch

      I don't even know if they visit FF forums, but they're nice enough people and their best medals are worth 8000+ damage.

      So if you're in Vulpes and get a request from Lost Wielders, feel free to accept even if only to get a feel for the party system.
