Miguel and Hector Medal Kingdom Hearts x

KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross] players can now collect a number of new medals based on Pixar’s Coco during a new limited time event.

Players will be able to collect medals featuring Miguel and Hector by completing multiplayer quests, medals featuring Miguel by completing special quests, and medals featuring Miguel and Dante from a special bundle. The event runs from July 16th to July 31st.

KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross], previously known as KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ is a gacha game that was originally released worldwide in 2016. The game lets players create their own character in the Kingdom Hearts universe and experience the game’s world in an all new story that takes place prior to the events of the first Kingdom Hearts game.

The game has had mixed reviews from fans and critics. Although it provides fans with a new story and more content from the popular franchise, it has often received criticism for catering too much toward users who spend large sums of money on the game. The backlash increased after an update earlier this year added 7 star medals and PVP content. Union Cross has found some success in terms of revenue generation and it’s currently Square Enix’s second highest game on Google Play’s top grossing games list in the United States, Canada, the UK and several other countries. Square Enix’s top grossing game in most regions? Final Fantasy Brave Exvius.

Limited time crossover events are popular in the gacha game category as they can add new, already popular, characters to established games. These characters are sometimes highly desirable and can lead to increased spending from gamers that want to make sure they get the newest hero before the event expires. Sometimes these events include original story content, such as the case of the recent The Alchemist Code Final Fantasy XV crossover, or they can be more focused on adding new characters and battles like a recent Valkyrie Connect x Modoka Magica event.

KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross] is free and contains in app purchases.
