Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is incredibly optimized for SEO

We sure learned a lot when we Googled this abomination

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

Square Enix and Disney have found yet another loophole in the game-numbering system.

For years, we thought games could only be released as round numbers. Look at any series out there, and you’ll see games with a two or a three after their names. But the Kingdom Hearts series revolutionized numbers with the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix.

These games were flawed. They did not contain all the hashtag content that exists in the sprawling nightmare of the Kingdom Hearts universe. And so once again, the geniuses behind this AU (it stands for alternate universe, dad) fanfiction series changed the way we do business. They discovered that even more numbers exist between 2.5 and 3, and are now releasing Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

This game is Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, but also a short film that no one cares about, but also another game that uses the same engine as the eternally damned Kingdom Hearts 3, which I care about a lot. Look at that gameplay footage! It’s sick.

Anyway, look at this video where I answer questions about that game. It’s part of our weekly series, SEO Play, where Google tells us what the most popular questions are about upcoming games. As game journalists who are very serious about our jobs, we like to answer those questions, in a sense. You can watch the series on our YouTube channel, or in the playlist below:
