Concept artist for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker says a set piece for Babu Frik was inspired by the Game Boy

Babu loves portable power

Concept artist Matthew Savage did some work for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , including a bit of set piece design for the character Babu Frik. Savage took to Instagram to show off some of the design docs he had for Frik's workshop, and it includes an interesting tidbit for Nintendo fans.

According to Savage, one of the computer pieces designed drew inspiration from none other than the Game Boy. In the Instagram post above, you can see a wide-shot of Frik's workshop setup, which features the Game Boy-style device on the left-hand side of the piece. If you click over to the next picture, you get an even better look at the computer tech, which makes it much easier to see its Game Boy origins.

While you might not make the Game Boy connection at first glance, hearing the story from Savage makes the inspiration a lot easier to see.

Yet more speculation of Epic Mickey's return bubbles up, thanks to another new piece of apparel

An epic Mickey moment

Is Epic Mickey going to make a return in some way? Just last month, we spotted a new t-shirt for the game, and now we have a hoodie to go along with it.

This hoodie is a bit different though, as it features some previously unseen artwork. Epic Mickey experts have noted that they haven't seen the above art anywhere before, leading them to wonder where it came from. With the shirt from last month, it seems evidence of something Epic Mickey is starting to pile up.

Could this all just be a coincidence? It certainly could, but it seems truly odd that two new pieces of apparel appear within a month of one another. We'll just have to cross our fingers and hope that Disney feel that it's time for the franchise's return.

Check out the EU cover for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Good...good...

Is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga coming to Switch on Oct. 20th, 2020? We thought for sure it was, as a video on the official Star Wars YouTube channel mentioned it. Now that video has been deleted, so we don't know what to think! While we wait on a new confirmation of release date, at least we can enjoy the EU cover for the game.
