Disney Illusion Island Is Built on the Foundation of a Canceled 2016 Game

Disney shut down its internal games development and publishing departments in 2016, canceling an unpublished Dlala project.

Dlala's Disney project was never announced.

It would have been a four-player couch co-op platformer with hand-drawn characters and a revival of one of Disney's biggest IPs

Dlala paid $3.5 million to develop it. Disney cancelled Dlala's game after 1.5 years of development.

Dlala kept some of the payoff but had to turn swiftly to keep the studio alive.1

Now, Dlala is returning with Disney for a game featuring some of the 2016 game's DNA.

The four-player co-op platformer Disney Illusion Island was shown today at the Disney and Marvel Games Showcase

The game stars Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck.

Later this year, Disney Illusion Island will launch for the Nintendo Switch.
