3DS Epic Mickey is a follow-up to Castle of Illusion

Well, this is unexpected and incredibly amazing news. While Junction Point Studios is working on the main console release of Epic Mickey 2, another developer, DreamRift, is hard at work on a 2D game for the 3DS. Titled, Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, the game will use all hand drawn sprites and parallax scrolling to add the 3D depth the 3DS is capable of. The most exciting aspect, however, is that the game is not only part of the Epic Mickey series but also heavily inspired by the Sega developed Genesis and Master System game, Castle of Illusion.

So far the main details for the plot of the game is that the queen from Snow White will be the main antagonist and each level will be inspired by various Disney properties. I feel the game is in good hands as DreamRift has made other well-received 2D games like Monster Tale on the DS, but what are your expectations? Were you a fan of the original Castle of Illusion?
