Kingdom Hearts 3 update 1.09 drops ahead of ReMind DLC

Today’s the day Kingdom Hearts fans have been waiting for. Almost a year after the long awaited launch of Kingdom Hearts III, Square Enix is about to drop a new chapter for players to dive into and explore.


However, before you can access this fresh content, you’ll need to download the latest title updates for Kingdom Hearts III. If you haven’t touched the game since launch then prepare to strap in for a dozen or so gigabytes of download time. Here’s what you can expect from update 1.09 as well as the previous 1.07 patch:

Version 1.09

  • Various issues have been fixed.

Version 1.07

  • You can turn in the Key Item “Proof of Promises” at the Moogle Shop to obtain the Keyblade “Oathkeeper.”
  • You can turn in the Key Item “Proof of Times Past” at the Moogle Shop to obtain the Keyblade “Oblivion.”
  • New forms have been added.
  • New abilities have been added.
  • Various menus have been updated.
  • Some cutscenes have been modified.
  • Various issues have been fixed.

Kingdom Hearts III ReMind is now available as of today for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. It doesn’t come cheap, however – expect to shell out a hearty £26.99 (or $29.99) for Square’s anticipated post launch expansion. For those who need a ReMind explainer:

Re Mind—The other tale that unfolded during the climax of KINGDOM HEARTS III. Determined to rescue Kairi, Sora travels to the Keyblade Graveyard a short time before the final battle was to take place. Lacking a corporeal form, he traces the hearts of the seven guardians of light. Through experiencing their personal battles firsthand, Sora is about to discover truths that he has never before imagined.

What comes next for the Kingdom Hearts franchise remains a mystery for now though it’s rumoured that multiple games in the series are currently in development, one of them having been revealed as mobile title Project Xenahort.
