Disney Illusion Story

What makes Disney Illusion unique is the 2D co-op experience fans get when playing this soon-to-be-released game. The video game is available for Nintendo Switch specifically, allowing it to be a single-player game as well. “Unlike similar games, the game will be a side-scrolling co-op that doesn’t focus on combat to get characters ahead.” as detailed by Inside the Magic.

Players can expect to explore the mysterious island of Monoth with their chosen character. Additionally, they are on a journey to recover three mystical books to save the world. Players can choose their favorite character to begin playing. Each character has unique abilities as you move through the game. Characters must perform high-flying platforming feats, solve fun puzzles, and take on epic boss battles.
