Kingdom Hearts IV is an upcoming action/role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 5. It is the fifteenth installment of the Kingdom Hearts series. Its release date is probably 2022 or 2023. This is the first game to use worlds based on Disney shows, including worlds based off of other Disney properties under the Marvel, LucasFilm, and Fox banners.


The game takes place after Kingdom Hearts III and its DLC expansion Re:Mind. When Xigbar (also known as Luxu) teams up with the Foretellers to start another epic Keyblade War, Sora (or Yozora in Verum Rex) must escape this world and reunite with Donald, Goofy, King Mickey, and the Guardians of Light, travel to more worlds, and call the war off.

  • The Command Menu, Shotlock Gauge, Attraction Flow, Keyblade Formchanges, ability to run up on walls, Flowmotion, Bistro mini-games (with vast improvements), and team attacks will return (as well as Reaction Commands after being absent at 3.)
  • The Classic Kingdom feature will come back as well, only with the mini-games this timed based off of Alice Comedies.
  • New features include:
    • Universal Tablet (which can instantly teleport you to other worlds not on the World Map, where you can help characters on mini-games and quests; you'll unlock more side-quests as the game progresses. You will get the Tablet from your first visit at Jetix City.)
  • You can, for the first time ever, invite other Disney characters you previously partnered with, to fight alongside you in other worlds. You can level them up in other worlds (mostly during grinding.)
  • Summon characters can be leveled up too. The higher the level, the stronger their attacks/abilities get.
