More info and first screen for Epic Mickey 3DS

Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion was just recently announced to be released alongside its home console counterpart, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. It was speculated by many, and has since been confirmed, that the game would follow in the footsteps of the popular Mickey Mouse “Illusion” series for early SEGA systems and the SNES fan favorite, The Magical Quest: Starring Mickey Mouse. Alongside returning to 2D, sprite-based platforming, it has also been confirmed that the game will be borrowing the thinner and paint mechanics (albeit with a few, 3DS-specific changes) from Epic Mickey.
