Disney and DLaLa Studios unveiled Disney’s Island of Illusion, a 2D platformer starring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald and, of course, Goofy.
Revealed during today’s Disney and Marvel Gaming Showcase, Illusion Island looks a lot like Disney’s Mickey Mouse show featuring various shorts starring original Disney characters like Mickey and all his friends.
It looks like in Illusion Island we’ll be controlling Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy based on what obstacles might stand in our way. For example, Mickey seems to be able to bounce off walls, while Minnie has a grappling hook-like rope that’s useful for clearing large gaps. Donald can swim – duh – and Goofy uses a condiment (it looks like mustard, but it can also be paint) to float and bounce above the stage below.
It all looks like fun, but it’s not all smiles and happiness on Illusion Island. That’s because our heroes have to go through three trials to get the coveted Book of Knowledge. We’ll find out exactly what those tests are when Disney’s Island of Illusion launches Switch exclusively next year.
