The first Epic Mickey 2 details have arrived from the latest issue of Nintendo Power. We learn that Dreamrift is making a sprite-based follow-up to the first Epic Mickey, and it appears to be a spiritual successor to Castle of Illusion for the Sega Genesis.

For the first bits of information, read on below.

– Game is a follow-up to Epic Mickey as well as Castle of Illusion (classic Sega Genesis game)
– Heavy use of the stylus
– Tap item icons that are in every level to “paint” (trace) items into existence
– This includes cliffs, cannons, floating platforms
– Better tracing will cause better things to happen
– Flawlessly-painted canon will only damage Mickey’s enemies
– Messing up the painting can result in danger to everyone in the area

– Erase with thinner by using the stylus
– Hand-drawn sprites
– Every level is based on an animated Disney adventure
– This includes “Sleeping Beauty”, “Peter Pan”, and “Tangled”
