Disney Magical World Coming to America April 11

Sort of like a Disney Harvest Moon?

Disney Magical World will be arriving on the 3DS April 11, Nintendo announced today. The game, a joint effort between Disney and Namco Bandai, was released last year in Japan to favorable reviews.

Magical World lets players explore different Disney-themed worlds while meeting and helping several well-known Disney characters like Aladdin and the Mad Hatter. Players can find missing items for the Disney Stars or complete challenges unique to each different world. Disney-themed outfits, accessories, and furniture will be available to customize the experience.

The title, known in Japan as Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life, topped Japanese sales charts for several weeks and sold more than 400,000 copies. Japanese players could even buy a special limited release 3DS XL to commemorate the game.

Check out the Japanese trailer below and let us know what you think!

No Disney Princesses, I see.   In fact, not a huge variety of Disney characters, at least in the trailer.

Oh yeah, I know I have 2 sealed copies of that game.   1 is for trading.  But people who collect Amiibos?  They really have a problem!

2:24. That image shows at least three princesses. You can tell by the color and design of the dresses. It's a trailer. You won't be able to see all of the possible characters. Plus some may be surprises, though it does look like they are sticking with animated characters only.

Can you only play as a female character?

Too bad they couldn't strike a deal with Nintendo to use Mii characters. It would have been perfect with it. And it sounds more like a Disney themed Animal Crossing. I wish AC would take a page from Magical World and the Rune Factory series.

I think at the same 2:24 mark you can see several male avatars in various Disney-fied outfits

And what page would that be?
Whoever said, "Cheaters never win" must've never met Khushrenada.

The dungeon exploring and RPG elements and maybe a larger plot. Maybe expand the farming. I do generally prefer to have action in my games. I just see a lot that Nintendo could do to expand AC.

Missed that! Thanks! I don't know if I should compliment you on having a good eye, or slam me for not being observant! How about both? :)
