Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is a musical spin-off from the main Kingdom Hearts series, and it’s due for release on November 13 for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. Now, ahead of that date, a demo has been released for the game–so you can check it out early and see if it’s to your taste.
This isn’t a traditional Kingdom Hearts experience, and instead plays closer to something like Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. It’ll feature plenty of Disney songs and characters–the full game will include over 140 songs.
The demo is quite a bit smaller, as you’d expect–it has four field battle music stages and two co-op stages, for a total of six songs. It’s free to download.
Your progress won’t carry over, but you can see if this blend of the Kingdom Hearts universe with rhythm gameplay is to your liking. The demo is available on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
This will be the first Kingdom Hearts title on Switch, but don’t expect the rest of the RPG series to follow–Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura has said that it’s unlikely.
The most recent game in the main series, Kingdom Hearts 3, came out in early 2019. There’s a new mobile game on the way, called Dark Road, which was recently delayed.
