It has been discovered on the LinkedIn profile of a Square Enix staff member currently working in Osaka, Japan that there may possibly be a title called Kingdom Hearts 2.9 currently in the works for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. On their profile, it also mentions their work on Kingdom Hearts 3 where they serve mainly as the main scenario planner for two worlds in the game and also have various other jobs related to the game.

Their portfolio website also lists Kingdom Hearts 3 as one of their current projects as well. 

It should be noted that this is not the first time Kingdom Hearts 2.9 has been seen before, as it was shown on Square Enix Presents' E3 2015 schedule right on the showroom floor, but was later removed and the mysterious title remained unmentioned during the event. The staff member's profile also shows that there may be Pixar worlds, Gummi Ships, and a multiplayer mode in Kingdom Hearts 3.

You can view their duties for Kingdom Hearts 2.9 and Kingdom Hearts 3 below: 

“Kingdom Hearts 2.9” (PS3, PS4) Development (10 Months)

  • Game idea planning and documentation
  • Game check and balance
  • Boss planning
  • Attraction Flow planning and documentation

“Kingdom Hearts III” (PS4, Xbox One) Development (10 Months)

  • Original level planning, documentation and execution for 2 worlds 

including enemy, item, secrets and event management

  • Mockup creation of 3 worlds including temporary asset creation
  • Game idea planning and documentation
  • Game check and balance
  • Enemy planning and documentation
  • Gummi Ship system planning and documentation
  • Multiplayer planning and documentation
  • Attraction Flow planning and documentation
  • Main scenario planning for 2 worlds
  • Various in-game dialogue writing
  • Translation and interpretation of contact between involved English and Japanese parties including Disney and Pixar
  • Publicity video recording and editing
  • Communication with outsourced companies
  • Holding meetings with Disney and Pixar
  • Team management, meeting management and proceeding recordings

Dear God, please let this be real and be announced at TGS and include Dream Drop Distance. Square does have a "secret" game in their TGS lineup. Could it be 2.9?

Whaaat?!

So, I'm assuming that this "KH 2.9" is separate from "KH ?". It could be a DDD remaster with Attraction Flow that will be released with KH3 Final Mix or something like that. I don't know. there's not enough to go off here. Who knows, maybe it could be something no one even thought of.

Or maybe it was something of a tech demo for III. Or an actual demo that people will be able to play.

It is weird how so many people conveniently forgot 2.9 was leaked at E3 (even though they didn't publicly reveal what it was).

I wish I could say I'm surprised by "omg new KH game" but I'm not :p

it will either be a comp of both REmixes plus extras (3D HD?), or a Ground Zeroes-esque prologue for KH3.

gotta say though, "2.9" would be an awful awful name for either type of game

We got Three-Five-Eight-Days-Over-Two, I'm sure we'll survive.

that at least had meaning. what possible meaning could they give for "2.9" other than that it takes place immediately before 3. and thats ONLY if its the prologue-esque game, not a compilation. your argument is certainly not quite the same

I first thought that the KH2.9 thing at E3 was some sort of joke. Now that is has appeared again, this might be something really interesting. Oh man, if we would get a port collection that has 1.5 + 2.5 + DDD HD, I would be happy man. Some sort of KHIII demo would also be awesome, but I don`t think that is gonna happen.
Oh also, new collection means possibility of new Nomura artwork! :) Ooh, I can`t wait. Maybe this is the secret title that was in Squares TGS line up?
