So what I can tell from the title, we may get some convoluted back story for the X-Blade and maybe Kingdom Hearts itself. hype

It will be about the X-Blade. So it would have to be back storyyy.

Further evidence this is based on the X-Blade.

 

Chi is the letter X in Greek. But furthermore, Chi is the basis for the name Chiasmas. Chiasmas is a figure of speech in which two or more clauses are related to each other through a reversal of structures in order to make a larger point. 

 

Familiar much?

Chi is the 22nd Greek letter in its alphabet. The X is how the Greek letter Chi is written out. So actually, the Chi is just there to inform you its Greek, and that the X is not something else. 

 

Chi is the basis for the word Chiasmus, which is a figure of speech in which two or more clauses are related to each other by a reversal of structures in order to make a larger point. 

 

Sounds similar to how the X-Blade is made. Thus, that is why this game is most likely about the X-Blade. 

 

 

Wiki for Chi:

Just wanted to throw that out there.

Pre-ordering 1.5 ReMIX comes with codes for KHχ[chi]. So, must have a close release date to 1.5 ReMIX then.

^^Never knew that about chiasmus. I don't think that was at all intentional, but interesting nonetheless. 

 

Anyway, I am so excited for this game!
