Disney UK today announced the development of “Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion,” the first Nintendo 3DS title in the “Disney Epic Mickey” franchise.
According to the PR, “this new title will feature an interactive combination of painting, dual screen integration and 3D transformation capabilities designed to give players the ability to create objects and even characters they can place in the world of Wasteland.”
First off you’ll be able to create rough versions of objects on the bottom screen, then when you transfer them to the top screen, they are further transformed into full-color, fully-rendered 3D visuals.
“The original ‘Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse’ changed the face of video gaming by allowing players to play as Mickey Mouse in a side-scrolling adventure full of dynamic environments,” said Warren Spector, vice president and creative director, Junction Point. “We’re honoured to be able to pay tribute to this classic video game by creating a title that truly takes advantage of the unique capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS, putting the magic of Disney and the historic Castle of Illusion in the palm of your hands.”
“Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion” is being created by DS developer DreamRift, in collaboration with Junction Point. The game is slated for a fall 2012 release on the Nintendo 3DS.
