Disney Interactive announced that a demo of the highly-anticipated “Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion” video game for Nintendo 3DS is now available for download in the Nintendo eShop. The video game demo will offer players a tutorial through the Castle’s West Wing, an introduction to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, and the opportunity to meet and talk with beloved Disney
Characters. Players will then set sail on the Jolly Roger to battle fierce pirates and meet the villainous Captain Hook. The game will be available for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system in North American retail stores on November 18th.
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.
