Epic Mickey Power of Illusion to be first third party day one retail/eShop release
New Super Mario Bros 2 may have been the first full Nintendo game to get released on the eShop and in stores simultaneously, and Nintendo is bringing over their earlier 3DS games to the service as well, but it’s been a bit quiet on the third party games on eShop front.
Well, not any more. Now, Epic Mickey the Power of Illusion (the 2D platformer spinoff of Epic Mickey 2 coming to the 3DS soon) is confirmed to be available on both the eShop and at retail on launch day, making it the first third party 3DS title to get a day one digital release as well as a retail one.
So when Epic Mickey the Power of Illusion is released on November 18th, you’ll be able to choose how to buy it right off the bat. Enjoy.
