A whole new world awaits players in Disney
Magical World, launching today for the Nintendo
3DS system. After creating a personalized avatar and a customized
dream life, players embark on a 3D fantasy adventure featuring more than
60 iconic Disney characters across a main central plaza and its four
surrounding worlds inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella,
Aladdin and Winnie the Pooh. It’s all Disney, all the time
as players interact with beloved characters, run a café to earn in-game
coins, set off on ghost-hunting quests and even visit friends’ towns via
the StreetPass feature.

“It’s very exciting to see two powerhouses in entertainment – Nintendo
and Disney – come together to develop a family-friendly video game,”
said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of
Sales & Marketing. “With Disney Magical World, players of all
ages can experience the magic of Disney through the magic of the
Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems.”
Endless opportunities for creativity and customization allow the
imagination to run wild in Disney Magical World. With more than
1,000 items, players can hone their design skills to create hundreds of
personalized Disney-themed outfits, accessories and furniture. Budding
green thumbs can plant and harvest crops in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Aspiring restaurateurs can design a café from its décor to its menu. As
they foster its success through careful management, players can earn
valuable in-game coins and even pique the interest of favorite Disney
characters to stop by for a meal. The personal “My Room” retreat above
the café offers another customizable opportunity with even more items
For players looking for a dose of adventure, the Disney Magical World
game features many exciting quests and unique collectibles. By
collecting and using magic wands with different skill sets, players can
battle through ghost-filled forests and dungeons. Players also can help
various Disney characters retrieve missing hard-to-find items on these
Several aspects of the game leverage the unique features of the Nintendo
3DS system. By scanning Disney Magical World-specific AR Cards –
which will be distributed online, in stores and at special events – with
the Nintendo 3DS camera, players can unlock new clothes, accessories and
furniture items. Players can connect locally or through StreetPass to
interact with other players and scope out their customized avatars,
towns and cafés. The game also offers additional free and paid
downloadable content via Wi-Fi to players using a broadband Internet
connection, including one free monthly in-game Disney-themed avatar
T-shirt. Players also can opt in to receive free downloadable items like
clothing and furniture every season, starting today.
As an added bonus, players who visit a Nintendo
Zone location between April 18 and Aug. 7 will be able to download
free exclusive items, most of which are themed to Pinocchio.
These include Pinocchio hats and outfits, goldfish bowls and wallpaper.
New items are available every two weeks, so players should keep checking
back. For more information about Nintendo Zone and where to find one

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
