Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory adds a curious cutscene update

Today, Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory was updated (on PlayStation 4 to Version 1.04) with a few minor fixes, and curiously, one cutscene in particular was updated as well. In cutscene #30 “Arrival”, which can be unlocked by playing the story campaign, a short conversation can be heard over static:

[Static begins.]

Vexen: “What’s happening!?”
Ienzo: “And just when things were going well.”
Ansem the Wise: “Something’s wrong. Shut it down!”

[Static fades.]

• Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory – #30: “Arrival”

While it likely lends more context to the goings-on in the background, specifically the Radiant Garden group’s efforts to delve into Kairi’s memories, one can’t help but think about what the future has in store for Kingdom Hearts.

In a message concluding service for Kingdom Hearts χ Dark Road last month, series creator Tetsuya Nomura shared that “The KH series has entered a preparation phase for what’s coming next. That includes the Union χ team, so once the story is over I will have them merge with the rest of the team.” Whether that means these separate teams are combining for a specific new title is yet unknown.
