Disney’s hilarious arcade-game-hopping adventure “Wreck-It Ralph” will be getting red-carpet treatment in the Video Game Capital of the World, as the Mayor of Ottumwa issues a PROCLAMATION, declaring Friday, November 2, 2012, to be “Wreck-It Ralph Day” in Ottumwa, Iowa.
The Proclamation will be unveiled by Mayor Frank Flanders during ribbon-cutting and cake-cutting ceremonies at the Ottumwa 8 Theatre, on Thursday, November 1 at 11:15 p.m. The event will be attended by many of Ottumwa’s civic, societal and business leaders, as well as by video game fans from around the region.
Mayor Flanders said, “Ottumwa has long been a cultural crossroads for the global video game culture and it’s important for the City of Ottumwa to lend public support to Disney’s creative efforts to produce an animated film that uplifts and nourishes the human spirit as well as celebrates the video game industry’s positive contributions to society.”
Famous for being one of the few municipalities in the world that supports the worldwide video game culture, Ottumwa asks that its Citizens celebrate this Day of Civic Observance, appreciating ”Wreck-It Ralph” as a film that champions the positive, uplifting aspects of the global video game culture through a warm-hearted, family oriented film. “This may be the only instance in the world of a City celebrating a video game movie premiere on an official civic level,” said Walter Day, Twin Galaxies Founder and member of the board of directors of the International Video Game Hall of Fame & Museum.
Coming November 18th 2012 “Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion,” Reality is What You Paint of It. The game offers a special drawing and painting function that allows players to create rough versions of objects that magically transform into classic Disney-style 2D illustrations. Utilizing the game’s unparalleled dual screen integration, players then move their creations to the top screen where they are further transformed into full-color, fully-rendered 3D visuals.
Paying tribute to the classic Sega Genesis title “Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse,” “Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion” focuses on the fabled Castle of Illusion, which has fallen into Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions – and now forgotten video games. The evil witch Mizrabel, villainess from the classic “Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse,” finds herself an unwilling inhabitant of Wasteland, and unleashes a plot to escape using the Castle of Illusion to imprison and drain the cartoon essence from currently famous Toons. Players will take on the role of Mickey Mouse as he utilizes his magical brush to wield paint and thinner to confront Mizrabel and save the Toons.!!
“The original ‘Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse’ changed the face of video gaming by allowing players to play as Mickey Mouse in a side-scrolling adventure full of dynamic environments,” said Warren Spector, vice president and creative director, Junction Point. “We’re honored to be able to pay tribute to this classic video game by creating a title that truly takes advantage of the unique capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS, putting the magic of Disney and the historic Castle of Illusion in the palm of your hands.”
“Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion” is being created by critically acclaimed DS developer DreamRift, in collaboration with Disney Interactive’s Junction Point. The game is slated for a fall
2012 release on the Nintendo 3DS. For more information, go to www.disney.com/disneyepicmickey or https://www.facebook.com/DisneyEpicMickey

I don’t know about you but I have 2 beautiful Disney Princesses at home. Both my girls have grown up being around Disney, from the parks to the movies and more! My oldest Zoe loves video games like her daddy but gets frustrated very easily. So when Disney came out with Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure I was looking at getting this for my oldest. While I would like to say we run out and get all the games when they hit the shelves we have found because she gets so frustrated with the controls on the Wii we can never tell if she will play a game for a few minutes or a few hours. So with that in mind we try to wait a few months before we run out and get games for her. To my surprise Disney sent us a copy of Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure to try out!
Here is some info about the game:
In “Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure,” players will take on the role of an apprentice to the Fairy Godmother and will accidentally set off a series of events that cause friendly Sprites to transform into mischievous Imps. The chaotic Imps make their way into the worlds of Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Tiana, and players must pursue the Imps into each Princess kingdom to prevent them from causing any harm. With the use of their magic wand, they’ll need to turn the Imps back into their original Sprite form, and return them to their rightful home in the Magical Kingdom.
Each of the Princess worlds will allow players to explore and interact with familiar Disney characters such as Lumiere, Pascal, Flounder, Gus and other fan favorites who will help guide them through missions and progress though the game. Quests and mini-games, including platforming, hide and seek, and puzzles, are designed to test the skills of the youngest players and challenge older players.
Players can also customize their avatar and room in the Fairy Godmother’s Castle, utilizing gems that are earned throughout the game to trade for items in the in-game “Wishing Well” store. Outfits, accessories and tiaras can be purchased to dress up avatars, creating hundreds of different combinations. Special items like floor patterns, wallpaper and furniture can be used to personalize and build out each player’s room in the Castle.
