Well considering these collections they're releasing, you might actually be able to pick it up...if you can figure out which is which with all these half chapters.

KH Dream Drop Distance
Birth By Sleep 0.2 or whatever they're calling it, a short sequel to BBS using the KH3 engine
Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover it's a cinematic of the story of the foretellers, no idea who they are.

Now, there are quite a few games, so what exactly is the "release order" of the games?
1) Kingdom Hearts (2002, PS2)
2) Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories (2004, GBA)
3) Kingdom Hearts II (2005, PS2)
4) Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (2009, DS)
5) Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (2010, PSP)
6) Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (2011, DS)
7) Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] (2012, 3DS)


1) Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 ReMIX
~Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
~Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
~Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (theater)

2) Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 ReMIX
~Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
~Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix
~Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (theater)




So as you can see, 4 of the 7 games are now fully playable in HD on these sets. However, 2 of the games in these sets aren't -- the ones labeled with "theater" above means that they're basically collections of cutscenes, taking the shape of 3-hour long movie. Now, these movies definitely have enough content to give you the full story of the original games they're being adapted from, but nobody would fault you if you just want to play the original games instead.

And as an aside, you may notice that "358/2 Days" is on the first set while "Kingdom Hearts II" is on the second. This may seem contradictory to the "play in release order" advice, but honestly, when it comes to these two games, their plots almost go hand-in-hand. And since this is the way Square released the HD sets, it's safe to say that this is their way of saying that it's alright to play "Days" before "KH2." Though, of course, the choice is yours -- you can play either in whatever order. Though, naturally, playing KH2 first is the most preferable, but again, it's up to you.

And lastly, "Dream Drop Distance" isn't on these sets, so you'd still need to have a 3DS to play that one. But, all things considered, just a PS3 and a 3DS to play through all seven current games is not bad at all.



So with that all out of the way, what is the recommended way to play the Kingdom Hearts franchise?
1) Kingdom Hearts Final Mix HD (PS3)
2) Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories HD (PS3)
3) Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix HD (PS3)
4) Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (DS) / Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD theater) (PS3)
5) Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD (PS3)
6) Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (DS) / Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD theater) (PS3)
7) Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] (3DS)

Your spoiler is borked but I can see it by quoting you and I agree, it does have a lot more meaning even though I actually played Days before KH2 so I thought it was neat to jump right into playing as Roxas again.

Release date confirmed as January 29, 2019. Not a bad release date, clearly SE wants nothing to do with Red Dead 2, and this gives them a jump on the February games which is shaping up to be a good month.
