The addition of the new, uniquely addicting Mickey Mouse video game franchise to Nintendo’s glasses-free 3D device will bring back memories of a bygone era of gaming. The new game, Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion, is set to be a direct sequel of the Sega Genesis game Castle of Illusion. Anyone who played the game is no doubt getting flashbacks of it at this very moment. If you haven’t played it, you’re missing out.
Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion will be hitting a new segment of gamers – the handheld segment. The 3DS version of the game was announced earlier this month, and is being developed by Dreamrift, but other than that not much is known about this new title. It hasn’t even been officially announced by the companies that are working on it but details were revealed in the latest edition of Nintendo Power.
It was previously reported that the 3DS version would be completely different from the console sequel to Epic Mickey. According to the article, the game is a 2D side scroller, meaning it will be a completely unique experience and will look nothing like anything that Epic Mickey fans would expect to see. Power of Illusion was never a wildly heralded game, but it did have great platforming mechanics and gained a cult following. It’s infinitely awesome that Disney is giving a nod to the vintage game.
