Noisy Pixel reported that when the final update was first released back in April, consisting of a 20-minute story cutscene with no gameplay, too many questions were left unanswered during its conclusion. However, a final update was dropped at 3 PM JST for Japan servers on May 31. Japanese players often get their updates ahead of time, and their secondary conclusion was released (the video translated above).
Unfortunately, the Global version and official English translation have made no other announcements since May 14, as tweeted above.
Regardless, the "Kingdom Hearts Union Cross" official services are expected to end on June 29. After that, the game would transition to an offline "theater mode" for interested fans who want to continue gaming.
This unofficially brings the conclusion to the long-running "Kingdom Hearts Union Cross" game. However, players can still look forward to unlocking the ending themselves when the official game version goes live.
The "Kingdom Hearts" series often leave puzzling conclusions and ambiguous endings. "Kingdom Hearts Union Cross" breaks the tradition. From what has been released, it seems that it reaches its official conclusion this coming June 29, both for the storyline and the game franchise.
