The most recently announced Kingdom Hearts release is Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 (er, 2.8, WHATEVER). That’s kind of an odd title. But, according to Tetsuya Nomura, there is a reason for it. A confusing reason.
Speaking with Famitsu, the Kingdom Hearts designer explained that there are various meanings contained in the naming. “This Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance compilation follows the previously HD work 2.5...and is worthy as taking its place as 2.6,” said Nomura.
