Blizzard has released a new animated short for their Hearthstone game, and it feels like something Disney would’ve made. A little girl walking through the snow is given a magic box by a mouse with a scarf…and ends up in a magical tavern where everyone is happy to see her. The patrons then sing her a song about the place. It may not be a “Let It Go”-quality song, but it is a fun little number and introduces folks to the game. What more could you want?
Here is what Blizzard wrote to go with it:
“Harth Stonebrew’s tavern is a special place. If you strolled among the packed tables and raucous laughter on a busy night, you’d overhear stories of exhausting travel and perilous adventure—and of lucky voyagers somehow finding the tavern just when they needed it the most.
For the colorful cast of characters who call it home, the tavern is more than just a place to put up their feet or toss back a tasty brew. For them, it’s where the magic of hospitality fills the air, and good times are shared by everyone who happens through the door. In the tavern, the joy of the unexpected or the thrill of competition can be found at any hour.
Watch, and discover why Hearthstone is home.”
