Kingdom Hearts 2 released for PS2 in 2006, so fans have been waiting 13 years for Kingdom Hearts 3, which came out this week. It seems the developers could not resist making a joke at the expense of everyone who has been unfolding after spinoff ever since.
Last night I started Kingdom Hearts 3. After watching the twenty minutes of recapitulation videos, then the opening cut scene, then another cut scene, then other cut scene, I was ready to go. We cut to a black screen. The words "Kingdom Hearts"Slowly it disappeared, and then this screen appeared:
I laughed out loud. Strange naming conventions are part of Kingdom HeartsCharm. In addition to the major numbered entries, there is a Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days, an Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5it is a Kingdom Hearts χ (pronounced "key"). There is even a game called Kingdom Hearts 2.8and another called Kingdom Hearts 0.2. To add in a 2.9 at first it feels enraging, so it makes you laugh.
Because I used to be an idiot who liked to ruin the fun of people, I was saying that I was not sure if Kingdom Hearts 3 would go out for years as a way to sew my friends who were desperately waiting for it.
Now, it seemed the game was joking too. Make sure that as soon as you pass from the first world, you will see a splash screen for Kingdom Hearts 3, but it was hilarious to discover that the game would make everyone wait a little longer.
Other players had a reaction similar to me:

My favorite part of Kingdom Hearts 3 is when you think the logo will appear and instead it says in large letters on the screen
KINGDOM HEARTS 2,9
just to play with your emotions and some of you will think this is a shitpost because that's how far we've fallen into the abyss
