Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion was delisted from the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America and Europe no later than April 1st, 2019. This is the date we received a submission from robdaboss72 pointing out the game’s removal alongside the Wii U release of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. The game was previously delisted in Japan on October 27th, 2015, according to reporting from Japanese Nintendo.
A Google Cache archive of the game’s page on Nintendo.com shows it was last online on March 20th, 2019. At that time the game was still available to download. Similar to the delisting of The Power of Two, the delisting of Power of Illusion could be tied to the independent developer behind the game. It could also be that Disney is simply scaling back on support for the titles they published as Disney Interactive Studios.
About the Game
“In Disney Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse as he infiltrates the Castle of Illusion on a quest to put an end to the evil witch Mizrabel’s diabolical intentions.“
- Disney Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion offers a special drawing and painting function that will allow players to create an interactive world by using the stylus to draw objects in the bottom screen that magically transform into classic Disney-style 2D illustrations. Utilizing the game’s unparalleled dual screen integration, players will then move their creations to the top screen where they are further transformed into beautiful, fully realized objects that pop off the screen in stunning 3D.
- Players will utilize the core “Disney Epic Mickey” gameplay mechanic of paint and thinner while playing as Mickey Mouse in an attempt to save classic Disney Toon characters.
- Players will engage in epic boss battles with familiar Disney villains using attacks involving the power of illusions to surprise players.
- Players will adventure through game levels based on animated Disney films such as Peter Pan and Aladdin, as well as interact with beloved Disney characters.
- In between adventures, players can develop their own fortress by taking a small fort and expanding it into a thriving castle.
