Epic Mickey 3DS gets some deets

Epic Mickey‘s 3DS outing in Power of Illusion isn’t trying to port the console experience over to a handheld.

Instead, as IGN reports, it will be a sequel to the Mega Drive Classic, Castle of Illusion. It’s a 2D platformer, then, borrowing from a range of Disney classics like Sleeping Beauty all the way up to recent entries like Tangled.

Touchscreen controls will apparently be used to paint the game world by tracing outlines. You could draw a cannon, say, to take out some enemies, though drawing it poorly might mean that Mickey gets hurt as well. Saving famous characters will open up side quests too.

The game will launch later this year alongside Epic Mickey 2.
