Disney’s Epic Mickey franchise coming to 3DS

There’s been a lot of hype lately surrounding the recently announced Epic Mickey sequel for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. But that’s not the only new title Disney is bringing to the franchise. It has also been confirmed that a completely new and exclusive adventure in Mickey Mouse’s epic saga will be heading to the Nintendo 3DS. This entry will be titled Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion, and will obviously be the first in the series to go to a handheld platform.

The original Epic Mickey title was exclusive to the Nintendo Wii, a decision that developers said almost from day one was a limitation, and they hoped the franchise would be able to expand its horizons. It looks like those hopes are absolutely being realized. Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will be hitting all three home consoles, with a brand new cooperative multiplayer option that is sure to bring a completely new level of depth to the experience.

And now, thanks to a brief tease in the latest edition of Nintendo Power magazine, we know that Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion will be hitting another segment, that of 3DS owners. This version 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. Expect many more juicy details to be revealed in the coming weeks.
