Disney pretty much owns the entertainment landscape. From Marvel flicks to that indie sci-fi fantasy hit Star Wars to its collection of animated characters – there is no doubt that you’ve seen something Disney has made in the past month…year…decade. They’ve had a lot of influence across the world including Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, who has openly cited Mickey Mouse as inspiration for Mario and the Nintendo brand. Disney decided to pay a little respect to Nintendo in a new (I’m alittle behind it was released in July) animated short called Tokyo Go starring the famous Mouse we all know and love. It’s a nice nod to Mario and the creator who, from a GameInformer interview, said “Is copyright an issue for them to use our sounds? [Laughs] It’s very flattering. We finally got a cameo together.”  Very cool indeed. You can check out the animated short and quick nod starting around the 2:20 mark below. [source: GameInformer | image: GameInformer]
