Coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch later this year in Japan (no Western release details yet), Kingdom Hearts: Memory of Melody is a rhythm action game featuring music and characters from throughout the long-running RPG series.

Square Enix launched the Japanese website for the game today, following a leak of the game’s logo on the website for the game Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road earlier this week. The trailer (via Nibel on Twitter) shows players travelling from stage to stage in a Gummi ship, as well as a variety of rhythm gameplay types. And for players worried this is just a throwaway spinoff, the trailer ends with heavy plot business, because Kingdom Hearts.

For those of you keeping score, this means the first Kingdom Hearts game on Switch is a rhythm game. Also worth noting, the game’s abbreviation is Kingdom Hearts: MoM.
