    Time to put the speculation cap on. I’m guessing its a prequel to Kingdom Hearts 3. I doubt they would combine 1.5 and 2.5 together for the Xbox One, but hey, that wouldn’t surprise me.

  • JDobbs

    I would guess its a prequel to Kingdom Hearts III at this point.

  • Pedro Rosas

    I wouldn’t mind seeing 3D on the PS4. Also 358/2 and Re:Coded have to be remade

  • Tara

    Let’s be honest here, Squeenix can’t help but squeeze in ONE MORE side-game before III. Or, it could even be a “demo” version of the game, or even a beta (hence 2.9, it would be kinda like having a version .9 as a beta). After all, it’s very unlikely there wasn’t at least SOME development on PS3 going on for KH3.

    Either that, or it will be something of a highlight/recap title covering the events of everything prior to KH3 in a concise form. (I highly doubt this, they wouldn’t make enough money on that idea.)

    Epic typo?

  • Gummy367

    If it really is a thing, it would probably be an HD remaster of 3D, since that’s the only one not yet in HD and it ties into KH III. Since 1.5 and 2.5 had multiple titles, I feel like they would want to put more than just 3D into 2.9, so maybe something related to Unchained X[chi]? Looked into it and apparently the story for X[chi] is related to III.
