Orlando Sentinel

Nintendo fans received some magical news this week. Disney confirmed that it is developing the first 3DS game title of the “Epic Mickey” franchise.

Disney Interactive Media Group announced on Wednesday that “Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion” will feature interactive painting, a dual-screen mode and, of course, 3D capabilities enjoyed by 3DS users. The game should be available in the fall.

Here’s the storyline of the side-scrolling game, according to a press release:

“Paying tribute to the classic Sega Genesis title ‘Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse,’ ‘Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion’ focuses on the fabled Castle of Illusion, which has fallen into Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions – and now forgotten video games. The evil witch Mizrabel, villainess from the classic ‘Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse,’ 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 will take on the role of Mickey Mouse as he utilizes his magical brush to wield paint and thinner to confront Mizrabel and save the Toons.”

The title is being created by DS game developer DreamRift and Junction Point, the Austin, Texas, studio that created the Epic Mickey franchise for the Wii.
