Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is an Action-Adventure Platformer, exclusively for play on Nintendo 3DS. The game is a companion release to the simultaneously released Disney Epic Mickey 2: the Power of Two, and a nod to Sega's classic Illusion game series from the 1990's, that also featured Mickey Mouse. Features include a special interactive drawing and painting function, the core Disney Epic Mickey paint and thinner gameplay mechanic, Nintendo 3DS touchscreen functionality, familiar Disney villains and bosses, and Disney universe themed game levels and environments.
In this side-scrolling gameworld, players must utilize both their platforming skills, and their paint and erase abilities to alter the world around them if they hope to save the world and their friends. The touchscreen of the 3DS allows for the tracing and illustration of a variety of objects. The best of renditions will allow objects to be used against enemies, while those less accurate could also be a hazard to all in-game, including Mickey and his friends.
