In case you haven’t heard, Square Enix finally announced Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue today. The PS4 remaster of the other mobile games in the series– Dream Drop Distance, 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage (no, seriously), and X: Back Cover— is finally the straw that’s broken the camel’s back, as far as titles are concerned, with the fans.
Congratulations to the Kingdom Hearts series for using the worst and most hateful naming and numbering conventions in all of video games.

The most Square Enix of all Square Enix games.
Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue
yep that sure is a Square Enix-ass name for a video game.

Of course it's called Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. Because Kingdom Hearts 2.9 just made TOO much sense.

Kingdom Hearts II.8 Final Chapter Prologue manages to do the impossible in being an even more ludicrous title than Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Kingdom Hearts has the most convoluted naming scheme I've ever seen. "Back Cover"? Really?

Kingdom Hearts 2.8. KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8. 2 POINT 8.

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 3/14: The Last Headscratcher
Convinced at this point the Kingdom Hearts title numbering system is a complex code that will save mankind

The only way fans can cope is by poking fun at this point.
After Kingdom Hearts 2.8, I can't wait to play Kingdom Hearts 2.999999999.

Watch Square release Kingdom Hearts 2.95 before 3
Just gotta fit one more spinoff before the big one
Alright now it's 2.954

Probably not that far off from how they name Kingdom Hearts games, to be honest.

Oh. I get it. KH3D (2.5) plus BBS0.2 (0.2) plus an extra 0.1 for the Unchained chi movie. 2.8.
…Square you're insane

Still, at least Final Chapter Prologue makes more sense than 358/2 Days, right? Maybe? No? Come up with your own Kingdom Hearts 2.8 title in the comments below.
