This is Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion. It's an upcoming game for the Nintendo 3DS. That's Nintendo 3DS. Not Super Nintendo. Or Nintendo Entertainment System. Though I can see how you might be confused.

Here's how Disney describes the game:

In "Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion," Reality is What You Paint of It. The game offers a special drawing and painting function that allows players to create rough versions of objects that magically transform into classic Disney-style 2D illustrations. Utilizing the game's unparalleled dual screen integration, players then move their creations to the top screen where they are further transformed into full-color, fully-rendered 3D visuals.

Paying tribute to the classic Sega Genesis title "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse," "Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion" focuses on the fabled Castle of Illusion, which has fallen into Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions – and now forgotten video games. The evil witch Mizrabel, villainess from the classic "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse," finds herself an unwilling inhabitant of Wasteland, and unleashes a plot to escape using the Castle of Illusion to imprison and drain the cartoon essence from currently famous Toons. Players will take on the role of Mickey Mouse as he utilizes his magical brush to wield paint and thinner to confront Mizrabel and save the Toons.


I'm very excited for Mickey Mouse's upcoming foray into the Castle of Illusion, particularly for the recruiting mechanic that reportedly draws inspiration from the Suikoden role-playing games.

Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion will be out this fall for 3DS.
