Kingdom Hearts creator wanted to use chainsaws for weapons

Kingdom Hearts creator and producer, Tetsuya Nomura, has said that the idea of the game did not appeal to him at first, and Sora carried a chainsaw as a weapon originally.


“Square wanted to make a game starring Mickey Mouse, and Disney wanted a Donald Duck title. Meanwhile, I wanted neither,” he told Famitsu.

“The first weapon I showed Disney was a chainsaw. It was this chainsaw-like weapon that I had a rough sketch of when I first showed my concepts to Disney. Everyone got this scrunched-up look on their face and nobody said a word in the entire room.

“Dead silence. And I thought ‘No, I guess this wouldn’t work, huh?’”
