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."

Shrikeswind: Just woke up and within like a half an hour my brother-in-law sends me two pics of the little rapscallion. Not sharing because I don't believe in posting baby pics on the Internet, but I will say he's clearly going to be a genius.

Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
