Rumor: Epic Mickey For 3DS?

Rumor: Epic Mickey For 3DS?

by Jeff SmithMarch 20, 2012

Epic Mickey was one of 2010’s most interesting games. It featured a dark twist on the classic Mickey Mouse short “Thru The Mirror”, brought back a long-forgotten character who once held the Disney marquee, and, to top it off, felt like a throwback to the early 3D platformers of the Nintendo 64 era. About a year ago, murmurings of an Epic Mickey sequel appeared, and then again earlier this month, and now it looks like we have even more to report.

This tweet appeared yesterday, courtesy of Nintendo Magazine Fr, and message board users over at NeoGaf have been going over it ever since. The tweet is in French, but after running it through a translator, it reads:

“The presentation of Epic Mickey 2 will take place next week. 3DS version, Powerof Illusion, more “classic” 2D is also planned.”
The timing of the presentation lines up nicely with previous rumblings, not to mention Warren Spector’s teasing of an “epic” new game. This version could be have the subtitle “Power of Illusion,” that, while sounding much better than a suffix of “-3D,” suggests a completely different version. Perhaps that is what “classic 2D” alludes to. All we can do now, however, is wait.

    Hello I was pondering which video game would be better? I am 19 sooo I do need to have to be amused for long quantities of time and I want a quality game not 1 that I will be carried out with in 5 minutes. I can get epic mickey for $20 on amazon or monopoly st for $23. so which game must i acquire given that price is not a determining factor
    hey thanks for your opinion! and why would you pick that?

    My mom bought it for me for my birthday and it is being shipped to our house. I was really excited about the game but I started to read some reviews. Some said the game was horrible! I am a 15 year old girl and I am not into extremely gorey games or any of that. My favorite game is kingdom hearts. Did you like Epic Mickey? Do you think I will?
    I got the collectors addition 😉

    I know Epic Mickey is currently a Wii exclusive, but am wondering if Disney might eventually change their minds given the PS Move now out for the PS3 and its sales doing rather well.

    My kids really want this game, but I only have a PS3 (they each have a DS). i refuse to buy a stupid Wii for ONE friggin’ game!

    I was just wondering because the dsi has a nintendo points card for it and the 3ds has a cash card. So how does the cash card work for the 3ds? What’s the difference?

    I want to get a ds for x-mas and i wasn’t sure if the 3DS has the same features as the 3DS .. or if the 3ds has 3d at the cost of losing some features ?

    For some reason, when I place a reference material on a plane in 3ds max 2010, it comes up fuzzy. I made the plane the exact height and width of the image, and it still comes out fuzzy. If anyone can point me to a very detailed tutorial or maybe some answers to why this is happening, it would be much appreciated. Thank-you!

    I heard the friends list system on the 3DS is replacing pictochat and me and my cousin use pictochat all the time on our DSi’s but i pre ordered the 3DS and he didn’t.What can I do?

  • Maggie

    i got the game for Christmas and i have like 300 tickets what are they for?

    More importantly, can either of these cards successfully run 3DS games? I’m leaning towards the original R4i because of the feature set (one click downloading!?), but it looks like the Gold can actually boot 3d games, is this right?

    Where can I buy one of these cards without getting a broken knock-off?

  • Maggie

    the price cut will lower the nintendo 3ds’ price to 170 dollars… but a used nintendo 3ds.. how much wuld a used one cost than? im thinking 120 dollars?

    If I’ve never used a DS will the backwards compatibility on the 3DS be satisfactory? I have heard and read that it doesn’t play regular DS games that well. Also for the 3DS or any DS model do I need to use the stylus or can I use my thumb or fingers? How strong is the touch screen?
