Kingdom Hearts, everyone's favorite merger of eastern and western video game culture, was released 15 years ago. Yeah, it's actually more than 5000 days since we first saw King Mickey Mouse in armor and fought back the Heartless as the Key Blade-wielding Sora. Yikes!
Anyway, Square Enix is known for causing a racket when there's a reason to celebrate their games, and in true Japanese fashion the anniversary of the hugely popular and influential #KingdomHearts, will be marked in appropriate style.
The Most Epic Glass Clocks
One of the ways the company is planning to mark the date is by installing a Memorial Stained Glass Clock display in the Tokyo Metro Marunouchisen Shinjuku Station Metro Promenade, which will take place from January 9 to 15.

- The Key To Aqua's Wardrobe: All Outfits And Accessories In 'Kingdom Hearts 2.8'
Basically, Square Enix created a big, ornamental piece of glass depicting Sora, Kingdom Heart's main protagonist, which stands as a clock on the station. On top of that, 12 smaller pieces of stained glass depicting various characters from the game, will surround the main clock and work as clock dials.
What's even more exciting is the fact that Square Enix plans to gift all 13 stained glass pieces away once the campaign is over as part of a Twitter contest. All you need to do to participate is to follow @_KingdomHearts and tweet them a picture of your favorite piece of glass from the memorial website.
Check out the 12 twelve, smaller pieces of stained glass bellow.
Besides the clock, the metro station display also features a video showing of some iconic Kingdom Hearts moments, and counting down to January 12's launch of HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, the remastered PS4-version of the game.
