Epic Mickey the Power of Illusion Screenshots show more classic Disney worlds

If you’re not excited for this awesome looking 2D platformer that harkens back to the days of Duck Tales and Capcom’s Mickey Mouse games on SNES/Genesis, then you don’t appreciate good platformers.  But just in are some amazing new screenshots that Disney have released of the game which show even more Disney themed worlds and classic characters.  They’re high quality too, given that they don’t come from a magazine scan.  So scroll down for the pictures!

The beast from Beauty and the Beast.  Possibly a boss battle, for whatever reason.  Also, here’s me spying deadly spikes to the left, indicating this level is going to be much tougher than it looks.

Peter Pan appears.  Don’t know why he’s just floating in mid air, looks kind of strange.  Also, what’s with the cannons on the touch screen, some kind of feature/mini game that’s required for the level?

More of the pirate ship level.  Looks pretty nice, although the lack of variation in the enemies found here is getting a little disappointing.

More interesting looking platforming on the pirate ship, and Peter Pan moves to the bottom screen.  Does anyone have any idea what the ranks on that screen are about though?  What exactly has been done perfect here?

Back to the castle, with that twisty turny corridor again.  Have to say the graphics here remind me an awful lot of another Mickey Mouse game back in the day, except the castle then belonged to Pete.

The foreground even seems to share much the same design and colour scheme.

Hey, is that Scrooge McDuck? That’s a pretty neat Duck Tales reference.  Which kind of reminds me, didn’t Warren Spector want to make a Duck Tales game after Epic Mickey?

More of the castle, and what looks like Pete’s face to the left.  It also looks a lot like a Pete styled Thwomp if you ask me.

Battling Captain Hook on the pirate ship’s deck.

Is this an Alice in Wonderland style level?  Because that looks like the Cheshire Cat sitting to the left and the style looks very much like that movie.  Still, consider me impressed in terms of how many different Disney movies this game seems to be trying to reference, it’s certainly a nostalgia trip.

Atlantis?  Looks like it’s based off ‘The Little Mermaid’.

More of a castle level.  This game looks fantastic for a 2D platformer.

And some of the pirate ship.  How come it seems the worlds in this game are quite literally right next door to each other?

Going from the castle to the pirate ship in what seems like the most abrupt level transition ever.

A castle hall.  Unfortunately I have no idea what movie this is based on, anyone got a clue?

Another screenshot of the castle area.  Love the level of detail in the graphics here, and how the levels never seem to get old/boring looking.

From what I’ve seen in the screenshots above, this game looks like a great 2D platformer and incredible looking throwback to the 2D platformers of the SNES generation.  Definitely seems like a game to consider buying.
