Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion screens, extra information released

Wednesday, 4th April 2012 14:55 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Screenshots for Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion have landed on the interwebs. Check them out below. The 3DS game will contain a drawing and painting function allowing players to create rough versions of objects which will “magically transform into classic Disney-style 2D illustrations.”

Players then move their creations to the top screen where they are further transformed into full-color, fully-rendered 3D visuals.

A tribute to the Sega Genesis title Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, the game focuses on the Castle of Illusion, which has fallen into Wasteland. Mizrabel, the evil witch from the original game, 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 don the persona of Mickey Mouse as he uses his magical brush to paint and add thinner to confront Mizrabel and save the Toons.

The game is slated for a fall 2012 release alongside Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

There’s also some concept art we just got in the mail through the gallery as well.

    Goddamit, I want this on Vita! Please, Disney! Make announce a Vita version. No upgrades to graphics or anything needed. I just want to play THIS version (the sequel to Castle of Illusion) on anything other than 3DS.

    “The game is slated for a fall 2012 release on DS alongside Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two”
    Steph is DS or 3DS, becuase i thought it was for the 3DS.

    I will get it, i think it will be great on the 3DS, but i hope for number 1 commenter, that it will arrive on the vita as well, gamers need the good games on all platforms.

    @3 Thanks.
    Since I don’t plan on getting a 3DS, the Vita is the only place that a game like this could exist. I kinda like the main Epic Mickey 2 and will probably get it for 360 but this one is different.
    Castle of Illusion is one of the first games I truly fell in love with.
