Nomura Explains How Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Got Its Name

Earlier this month during the Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix revealed yet another Kingdom Hearts collection.

But, like the other compilations, this one came with a ridiculously bizarre name: Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Heck, having the words "final" and "prologue" in the same title prompts questions.

But thankfully, director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed how the game got its title. He explained it to Japanese publication Famitsu, and it was then translated by Kotaku and NovaCrystallis. Firstly, because the games in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX are set before Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, that game is actually "2.6." But there's more, as Nomura said:

"Since Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover/Kingdom Hearts Unchained is supposed to be the first game in the mainline series, that is being represented as '0' in the collection. And lastly, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is '0.1' and that then leads into Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep."

Essentially, this means they got the 2.8 number by adding 2.6, 0 and 0.2. Get it? If you forgot, Final Chapter Prologue features high-def remakes of the aforementioned Dream Drop Distance, as well as Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2.

Oh, it's not that complicated.

It's not complicated.

It's just dumb.

Still, I've not had a single KH entry disappoint me yet. Looking forward to it since I never played the titles in 2.8 on the original systems.
