Yep. That's how Nomura said it. I wanna learn Nomura Math. It sounds more fun than regular math.Wasn't it
"Kh 3D is actually KH 2.6 (set after 2.5), + 0 from Back Cover (cause that's chronologically the first entry in the series) + 0.2 because A Fragmentary Passage plays right after BBS which plays next after Back Cover (so BBS is 0.1) and all of that equals 2.8"?
"When Square Enix announced Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue earlier this month, some fans might have wondered what exactly the number "2.8" meant in the title. Now, director Tetsuya Nomura has explained the reasoning behind the bizarre name--and his answer itself is tough to comprehend.
In an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (translated by Kotaku and NovaCrystallis), Nomura said that because the games in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix are set before Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, that game is actually "2.6" in the overall franchise.
"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," NovaCrystallis reports. "And lastly, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is '0.1' and that then leads into Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep."
Thus, the 2.8 number comes from 2.6 plus 0 plus 0.2."
Where is that 2.8= 2.6+0+0.2 from? Not only is that stupid math (because with this reasoning 1.5=1+#(358/2 Days)+#(CoM) > 2, since #(CoM)>1) but I'm pretty sure that Nomura said BBS is KH0.
It's just one of Nomura's many interviews, that's a direct copy and paste. He said BBS was KH0 in spirit, because it was important and because it was set before KH1. At the time he didn't plan to create Chi, he wanted to tell the story of the keyblade war but was still working out the details. Eventually Chi immerged and he realized with the way the numbering system was that Chi would either need to be named 0 or go into the negatives which just be silly.
You can actually get a feel for when this shift happened because when BBSFM came around we got a new secret ending video "Zero Point" and it does 0 when showing BBS, 1 when showing KH1, and then touches on 0.5 when tapping into BBSV2. So during that time BBS was still unofficially KH0.
I really feel as though 2.8 could have been dropped and they could have stuck with "Final Chapter Prologue". I understand the math behind it but I honestly feel as though the convalutedness of the title may damage potential sales.
