Game Of The Week – Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life
Disney Magic Castle offers players the opportunity to own and manage a cafe whilst partaking in various activities within the wonderful world of Disney. From fishing to monster hunting, the game provides a wide selection of different game play elements with players tasked with unlocking over 1000 Disney related items.
Featuring over 80 characters from the infamous Disney vault the title imaginatively utilises the various characters and offers players the opportunity to socialise with their childhood favourites in their own respective worlds.
With such a bright start and strong utilisation of Western favourites it’s hard to believe this title won’t reach European shores sometime in the near future. For those holding out for an English release, expect to hear more information from Namco Bandai soon.
