The Kingdom Hearts franchise finally makes its way to Switch with Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory, a musical spin-off. Want to learn more about this trip down Kingdom Hearts memory lane? Check out full details in the press release below.

SQUARE ENIX® and Disney today announced the launch of KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory, the first rhythm action game in the wildly popular video game series. Starting today, players can battle to the beat of legendary composer Yoko Shimomura’s beloved tracks and timeless classics from Disney, including “Let It Go” and “Under the Sea,” on the Nintendo Switch™ system, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X. This celebration of music and adventure marks the KINGDOM HEARTS series’ debut on the Nintendo Switch.

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. Players can casually explore all the worlds and tracks with One Button mode, or really showcase their prowess with the frenetic “Performer” mode for more fast-paced and skillful combo sets. Along the way, players will unlock and collect iconic story scenes from across the entire KINGDOM HEARTS saga, to be enjoyed in the game’s Museum. Competitive Online Battle modes mix up the formula even further, with special tricks to confound your opponents. Players of the Nintendo Switch™ version can also participate in a Free-for-All battle mode with up to seven other players via local play.

Celebrations of the game’s launch continue in the hit mobile game, KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ Dark Road, as fans can obtain the brand-new SN++ - MoM Kairi Medal for a limited time. Full details on how to obtain this new Medal can be found in-game.

Dataminer finds list of banned words for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory players

From honkers to pubes

Want to get yourself in trouble when playing Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory? Try to use one of the many, many words that Square-Enix has blocked from the game. It's not clear what happens if you try to use these words. The game will probably just tell you that the word/phrase isn't allowed and that's that. If you somehow find a way to get by these filtered words, prepare for Square-Enix to take action.

We've placed the list of words after the jump, as quite a few of them are offensive in numerous ways. You've been warned.
