Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion for Nintendo 3DS is a spiritual sequel to Castle of Illusion


In an article by Nintendo Power on the recently revealed Epic Mickey title for Nintendo 3DS it was announced that the title will be designed as a follow-up to the 1990 SEGA classic Castle of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse. The game will see Mickey Mouse traveling around various Disney worlds, meeting with several characters (Scroodge McDuck is cited as an example) in a 2D action platformer style perspective. The game will feature high-detail sprite art with several layers of parallax scrolling for added 3D-effect.

Not to be confused with Junction Point and Blitz Gammes’ upcoming Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion is it’s own unique game developed by Dreamrift, whom are best known for their highly regarded Monster Tale and Henry Hatsworth games on Nintendo DS. No release dates have been discussed, but it is expected to be released around the same time as Epic Mickey 2 later this year.
