Kingdom Hearts 3 features a Game & Watch nod | Nintendo Wire

Just yesterday Square Enix and Disney showed off the latest footage of the eagerly anticipated Kingdom Hearts 3 at the latest D23 Japan Expo. While the game is still unfortunately skipping Switch from the look of things, a rather cute Nintendo reference has been spotted.

At some point in the game Sora will go 2D and enter a retro Game & Watch-styled device based on the 1933 Mickey Mouse short Giantland. You can even see Mickey poking his head out from behind the curtain.

Considering Mickey Mouse saw a licensed Game & Watch game during the ’80s it’s a pretty cool reference to an obscure bit of history!

Here’s hoping Kingdom Hearts doesn’t stay gone from Nintendo systems for long.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
