The open beta for Square Enix’s latest browser game and installment to the Kingdom Hearts series Kingdom Hearts Ki is now open.

It may be written with the Greek letter “chi”, but is pronounced “ki” as in “keyblade”, what your character will be using to try and restore light to a world where darkness has once again taken over. The title is a reference to past games, where the idea of the ki-blade was introduced. The open beta test will take the testers story wise through the opening movie, tutorial, and of course to the world map where they can fight the darkness.

Characters at the beginning are customizable and allow for a choice between male and female characters as well as choosing which house the player starts in. (Read more about Kingdom Hearts here at SGCafe).
