    Seems like Square Enix was making Kingdom Hearts 2.9 for PS3 and PS4 in the shadows.

    Richard VanDeventer, the person from where the leak is coming from has worked 11 months with SE and this has been found on his linkedin profile
    SE hasn't yet announced the game but they did say that a secret project is gonna be revealed at this years Tokyo Game Show which will happen on the 19th of this month.

    There's too many KH games as it is. I really hope this isn't true (but lets be honest it probably is).

    I'd rather see a new game announcement like a new Chrono Trigger.

    SE did talk about KH3D being HD'd, not sure if there's a connection with 2.9 there.

    omfg, why no kingdom hearts 1.5/2.5 for xbox one? You're gonna put KH3 on xbone, but not the prequels? wtf mane, now the ps4 and the ps3 get this 2.9 version, but we xbone users are left in the dust.

    I think its due to the fact that they were ps3 games an the issues of porting from there. They didn't put a whole lot of refining into parts of the game so I'd assume they wouldnt take the time or budget for the port. As for this game it would be pretty shitty if it was on the ps4 and not the xbone given their similar architecture.

    You must not be a Kingdom Hearts fan if that's the poorly named title.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    That being said, literally the only reason I would buy an Xbox One or PS4 would be to play KH3. It's a great series with really, really, stupid titles. But I'm also a Nintendo fanboy so "New(er) Super Dooper Super Mario Bros U" for the NEW NX XL is next on my shopping list.
    At this point, what system CAN'T you own if you want to play them all? They're spread all over the place. Makes it pretty hard to follow along.

    Edit: BTW... FUCK! I don't have a PS3 to play this one and I was just planning on renting an Xbox One for a week to no life KH3 after release. I can't beat both games in a week...

    I sure hope not... I hate that series. I wish for a new Chrono Trigger or Secret of Mana game.

    I don't follow the series. Is this a huge patch to an existing game, or is SE taking the microsoft route of naming things? :unsure:

    Only issue I have with this whole series is the number of platforms you need to own to be able to play all of the games.

    -PS3
    -PSP
    -3DS
    -PS4

    And that's not counting the systems needed to play the original games and not the remasters. And every game is necessary to the plot and you can't play any of the later ones without first playing and remembering dearly the story of the old ones.

    I wouldn't say they are at MSoft's dafuq level of naming. Yet. XD

    Since it is more likely than not (or at least I can safely assume) that 2.9 will be a prequel of sorts (some speculate it'll be the HD remaster of DDD among other things) to KH3, there is still some logical sense behind it. Not gonna lie. It sounds ridiculously stupid but logical.

    @Foxi4 is probably bashing his head on a brick wall and clawing his eyes out right about now :P

    2.9, Jesus Christ, it's as if this series couldn't get any more cringeworthy and yet somehow manages. They're edgy even with their numbers now, lord have mercy.

    PSP only has Birth By Sleep which is also on PS3 (2.5), there's no other KH games on it AFAIK. PS3 and 3DS get you every KH game out there currently, and there's a chance the upcoming 2.9 will have an HD version of KH3D, which would eliminate the need for a 3DS (and replace it with PS4/Xbone for KH3). And honestly, there isn't much of a reason to go for the originals over the remasters either, unless you really want that 358/2 or Re:Coded gameplay (and both of which aren't that amazing anyway)

    I actually love KH, the reason I hate the title is much is because it's like the biggest cocktease in the world. 2.9, .1 away from giving me KH3. Seriously?!?!
