Kingdom Hearts


 

Square Enix has released a new update for Kingdom Hearts III that introduces Critical Mode to the game.

Critical Mode is the toughest difficulty in the Kingdom Hearts series and its latest iteration reduces maximum HP and MP by half and lowers the frequency of situation commands and magic. However, to help even the odds, Sora will gain access to new abilities, including Critical Counter, Critical Recharge, and Critical Converter.

Today’s update also adds the option to carry over unlocked Keyblades to a new game. Keyblades will be returned to their original strength, but this will give players the chance to play with late-game Keyblades from the beginning of the game.

Other changes include adjustments to enemy AI, an increase in photo storage, and a new checkmark next to items that have been synthesized.

Kingdom Hearts III is available now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
