Today, Disney UK officially announced the new Epic Mickey title for 3DS named Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion. This is the first title of the Epic Mickey franchise for the Nintendo 3DS. To help utilize the handheld this title will feature an interactive combination of painting, dual screen integration, and 3D transformation capabilities. The motto for the game is “Reality is What You Paint of It”. With the ability to have a dual screen setup the new Epic Mickey allows for the user to draw a 2D illustration on the bottom screen and then move that to the top screen to see it come to life in full 3D color. The game is loosely based on the old classic that was “Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse”. Power of Illusion will be focusing on this environment after which it has fallen into Wasteland. Wasteland is an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. You will be facing with the evil witch Mizrabel whom finds herself in Wasteland and is very unhappy about it. The story comprises of Mizrabel coming up with a plot to escape by using the Castle of Illusion to imprison and drain the cartoon essence from all the current famous disney toons. Your goal will be to use the magical brush, which uses paint and thinner, to defeat Mizrabel and save the Toons. Check out a snippet from the press release below.
