30+ hours of gameplay with Donald Duck and Goofy as wingmen built up to this moment with a dramatic scene centered around friendship and a promise. How it truly makes an impact is by reprising the melody of the game's main theme, now as a pop song. It makes for a fitting transition into the game's open-ended conclusion and its credits. In retrospect, it's a bittersweet moment when considering how the rest of the series has unfolded.
