During one of the cut-scenes it shows Kingdom Hearts II.9

Is there a significance to this, or perhaps a chapter in the story?

I know Kingdom hearts is a complex story written over several games with history and back history and side history. So, wasn't sure if this was part of all that.

As you said, Kingdom Hearts is a story that ranges over several games (and consoles).

The introductory chapter of Kingdom Hearts 3 is titled as 2.9 because it picks up where the ending to Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 leaves off.

During the end cutscene of Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep, as well at the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 3, we learn that

Sora is stripped of his powers after being nearly consumed by Xehanort during the Mark of Mastery exam in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

This chapter is designed to build the bridge between the events that occurred in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts 3 before sending Sora on his journey.

    Interesting, thanks for your answer. It actually makes sense now due to the progression scenes in KH3 which show different titles Jan 30, 2019 at 22:06
