From what the latest Nintendo Power appears to say- I've heard it second hand from a friend with it- the plot of Illusion is that Mizrabel's castle from Castle of Illusion gets sent into the Wasteland and she isn't happy about it. Not, as originally reported, the Snow White queen.
If this info checks out, than that means they've got the license to the older Illusion games. So maybe there's hope for them getting re-released soon, maybe in the actual game.
That would be awesome. Mickey & Donald's World of Illusion was one of my favourite Mega Drive games. I never really got to play the first two Illusion games, I didn't know many people who had Game Gears or Master Systems.

I just heard about this, never cared much for the first EM game, a bit overrated imo, so when I heard a sequel was coming I snored but when I found out about the details and saw the screens of the 3DS version I came, sequel to the Mickey Illusion games? Consider myself sold! Looking forward to this more than any of the console versions.

Some small news from a two page preview in Nintendo Power:
*Disney Gulch is an area. This is presumably the Frontierland area, likely with a focus on the mine Train. *The boss is Pete's Dragon as a robot. Fitting, as he's an infamously forgotten character. *The 2d sections now include non-Mickey cartoons. One shown is the Old Mill, an Oscar winning short.
Non-Mickey shorts isn't new to the sequel... the shorts in the first game also included Silly Symphonies, Pluto and Oswald shorts. And (for some reason) two of the shorts were Sleeping Beauty.
I'm hoping the sequel is going to have more contemporary stuff in it. The first game had plenty of references to Disney renaissance era movies in Dark Beauty Castle's statues and paintings, but outside of it it never really went beyond the 60s (except for Toontown and the Tron stuff). I know that was a deliberate design choice, but it seems like they're missing out on so much Disney gold there.
Thank god that onme of the many things that killed Epic Mickey, too much focus on the forgotten Mickey cartoons and not enough focus on other forgotten Disney character like Eliot.
Actually, for a game called Epic Mickey, very little of it really focused on Mickey cartoons. The only section of the game outside of the shorts that heavily featured Mickey history was Mickeyjunk Mountain. The rest was all Disneyland history with stuff from old movies slipped in around it.

It's official, Epic Mickey 2 is also being ported to Wii U. The port is being handled by Heavy Iron Studios. The PS360 version is still being ported by Blitz Games. Junction Point is still developing the base Wii version.
I wonder if there will be any significant differences besides controls and screen resolution.
"The game uses the Wii U GamePad to display a real-time map of Wasteland, the virtual world in which Epic Mickey 2 is set. You're able to place waypoints and markers that show up in-game to help with getting around. You can also use the GamePad to activate sketches to use in-game."
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
