In KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory, players will relive their favorite moments from the series as they journey alongside Sora, Donald and Goofy, along with other familiar KINGDOM HEARTS characters. As players travel through iconic Disney worlds, they will join forces with beloved Disney characters along the way. Players can master more than 140 musical tracks, including favorites like “Destiny Islands,” “Hand in Hand,” and “Working Together” from Yoko Shimomura, as well as classic songs from Disney’s cinematic universes.
Whether alone or with friends and family via local co-op and online multiplayer, players will bounce and bop to the beat of the exhilarating KINGDOM HEARTS soundtrack to defeat tough enemies and bosses. The game offers three different play styles so players of all ages and skill levels can enjoy their magical musical adventure in KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory.
