The game’s epilogue cutscene was even labeled “2.9: The First Volume.” It brings everybody to the present where Mickey and Riku chose to save Aqua from the Dark World. Meanwhile, Kairi decided to train with Lea to become a key blade master. This hyped up fans for an upcoming “Kingdom Hearts 2.9” that delivers a sequence leading to the new game.

To give light about these leaks, Nomura revealed that the “2.9: The First Volume” connects to the upcoming game.
