Disney Magical World trailer shows cafe design, ghost hunting

A new trailer for Disney Magical World shows how the game blends Animal Crossing-inspired life simulation with Disney characters and activities.

The 3DS game lets players move into a world filled with familiar Disney cartoons. Once there, players can make friends with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and more, and participate in activities which range from fashion designing, to fishing, to cafe management, to ballroom dancing, to ghost hunting.

Disney Magical World will release on eShop and in retail on April 11 in North America. Plans for a European release have not been announced.

Namco Bandai published Disney Magical World in Japan in 2013, where it sold more than 500,000 copies. Nintendo took over publishing duties for the game's North American release.

The House of Mouse's other character-driven video game, Disney Infinity, sold more than 3 million units in 2013, making it the tenth best-selling retail game in the U.S. last year. Disney Infinity 2 is already in development according to a job listing from developer Avalanche Software, and it will include characters from Marvel and Star Wars.
