If there’s one thing the Kingdom Hearts series is known for, it’s absurd titles that make absolutely no sense. I’m sure by now the intelligent reader has noticed that the trend has not abated. Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue is the last in the series of HD remasters, and, like its predecessors, consists of two games and one collection of movies. Unlike previous HD collections, however, this time around one of the games and the movie collection are all-new material, meaning that even hardened fans of the Kingdom Hearts series will find something new here. This is both a blessing and a curse, as we’ll see.

As I write this, the Nintendo Switch live presentation has just concluded, and the world has had its first real look at Nintendo’s odd new system, complete with actual confirmed games. So I know what you’re thinking: wossit like?
The technical nitty-gritty of the console is still unknown, but we did get a confirmation that the system does have a touchscreen. We also got new information about the joy-con controllers: specifically, the joy-cons each have independent motion controls, and each has one analogue stick, A/B/X/Y face buttons, and L and R shoulder buttons, making for a fairly robust set of inputs. In addition, there are the expected start and select buttons, the former on the right joy-con and the latter on the left, along with a home button and a "share" button for taking screenshots. The right joy-con also apparently has an IR camera built into the top of it; what on earth anybody intends to do with that thing was left an open question, but we know it’s there. The joy-cons also contain NFC readers for easy Amiibo compatibility. Apparently they can also simulate the feeling of putting ice in your drink. Don’t ask me; I don’t know either.
