Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion Will Be Both A Retail And eShop Title


Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion will be released as both a retail title and a Nintendo eShop download title at launch in North America, Disney announced at an Epic Mickey event held at Disneyland this week.


Provided no other 3DS third-party game does this prior to Power of Illusion’s release, it would make it the first third-party Nintendo 3DS game that sees a launch at both retail and eShop


Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion will be released on November 18th in North America. Nintendo have confirmed that Disney will also be releasing a free demo of the game via the eShop at some point in the future.
