New Kingdom Hearts content is on the way in 2020, with two brand new titles making their debut. A trailer featuring a full orchestra playing some of the series’ iconic soundtrack announced some of the new content coming later this year.

The first piece of content is an expansion to the mobile game Kingdom Hearts: Union X, featuring Maleficent. The next — a brand new title — is another mobile game in the same art style as Kingdom Hearts: Union X, with what looks like some heavy card-playing action. Titled Kingdom Hearts: Union Dark Road, it appears to take place right after Union X, but before every other game in the series. It will be out on June 22 on Android, Apple, and Amazon devices.

The next new title is Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, which appears to be a joyful rhythm game — except with a hidden dark side. The game will feature Kairi as a central character. Melody of Memory will be out sometime in 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
