Epic Mickey Power of Illusion is truly a Castle of Illusion sequel

SEGAbits: "While SEGA did not feature prominently at last night’s Nintendo 3DS E3 Software Showcase, aside from a mention of Rhythm Thief, SEGA got an indirect mention when Warren Spector and Peter Ong of DreamRift took the stage. Ong shared his love for Castle of Illusion, stating that for a time as a child he played the full game once a day. His love for the Genesis classic carried over to his pitch to Junction Point Studios for how he and his studio would develop a 3DS Epic Mickey game." (3DS, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two)

No it's not, it looks nothing like the classic Starring Mickey Mouse games. It just looks like Epic Mickey "The Handheld" version.

How can you have a sequel to the "Illusion" Mickey Mouse games when thats part of a total differen't franchise.

You can't have a game from the Epic Mickey franchise be a sequel to the Old Mickey Mouse "Illsuion" franchise.

All Warren is doing is using gamers nostalgia for those classic games to boost Epic Mickey sales for the 3DS since he wants his next Epic Mickey games to do as well as possible.

I know right...two completely differen't franchises and yet a game for one of the two franchises is a sequel to a game in the other franchise. It dosen't make sense. Not surprized if he did plan this though, he probably wants as many sales on the portable version as the console ones.
