Now that Kingdom Hearts III has had some time in the sun and players around the world have had a shot at going through this new story, an update hit today that adds an all-new Critical Mode to the game. This is an additional high-challenge mode, that will put players to the test. Additionally, this update adds the feature for players to carry over their Keyblades to a new game. Keyblades that are carried over will return to their default strength, but through this optional feature, players can utilize Keyblades otherwise not obtained until later in the game from the beginning.
Critical Mode will challenge even the most skilled Keyblade wielder to be more tactical as they battle formidable foes. In this new mode:
- Maximum HP and MP are halved
- The frequency of situation commands and magic is lowered
- Sora can perform new abilities exclusive to this harder difficulty mode
