Kingdom Hearts Dark Road is the thirteenth game set in the Kingdom Hearts series. It was released on iOS, Android, and Amazon smartphone devices on June 22, 2020 globally, as part of Kingdom Hearts Union χ‘s second rebranding. Now titled Kingdom Hearts Union χ Dark Road, the app makes both games available for play.
Unlike Union χ, Kingdom Hearts Dark Road does not feature world exploration as one of its gameplay elements. The game is ultimately divided into two categories: Navigating the main menu, and battles. Players can advance the main story by completing a series of required quest(s) – once the requirement is met, they will be able to view the next story cutscene.
