Not content with following up on the much loved Epic Mickey with Epic Mickey: The Power of Two for consoles, Disney Interactive have announced that the 3DS will be getting in on the action too.
Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is slated to be something of spiritual successor to hit Sega Genesis title Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse.
Paying tribute to the classic Sega Genesis title it will focus on the fabled Castle of Illusion, which has fallen into Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions – and now forgotten video games. The evil witch Mizrabel, villainess from Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, finds herself an unwilling inhabitant of Wasteland, and unleashes a plot to escape using the Castle of Illusion to imprison and drain the cartoon essence from currently famous Toons.
Players will take on the role of Mickey Mouse as he utilises his magical brush to wield paint and thinner to confront Mizrabel and save the Toons.
Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is being created by DS developer DreamRift, in collaboration with Disney Interactive’s Junction Point. The game is slated for a fall 2012 release on the Nintendo 3DS.
