Fish with Donald Duck in the Disney world of magic.

Namco Bandai Japan and Disney are collaborating for a new 3DS game called Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life.

The game begins with the arrival of an invitation from Mickey Mouse himself, who asks players to become the owner of a cafe in the world of dreams and magic. Players can decorate the cafe, customize their own character with over 1000 Disney items, meet over 80 Disney characters, and enjoy activities such as fishing and using magic to hunt monsters. Many different fields are being prepared.

The game is due out for 3DS on July 11 in Japan for 5,480 yen. A special edition 3DS XL bundle will be available for 24,380 yen.

Watch the debut trailer below. View the first screenshots at the gallery.

    Oh man I would kill for that special edition XL.
    Love white systems and I love Disney even more. Seeing Magic Kingdom through my 7 year olds eyes is truly magical.

    Bring this stateside Ninty. Day 1 Purchase.

        Wow, that wasn’t an overreaction at all.

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        That’s my last nerve.

        • Skeletor

          Wow. You guys have been droppin that banhammer lately.

          I can see why Dean was upset. Who downvotes a purely positive comment about the subject at hand and his child?

          The downvoting system is ridiculous and I have seen others, including Zero, one of this sites mods express their discontent with it.

          Now you may have other reasons for banning the guy, he does seem to hate xbox but he articulates why very well but overall he seemed one of the more intelligent posters around here. Even quite funny at times.

          Oh well. This site is heavily policed. He should just keep his opinions to himself like I tend to do.

          • Alos88

            He went completely nuts over a single downvote. He wasn’t even just angry, he was downright offensive to whoever did it.

            • Skeletor

              completely nuts is a bit of an overstatement though.
              He maybe couldve toned down the language a bit but I would thank F bombs are acceptable on this site as I have seen another mod, Faithless Mr., use them many times.

              (as a rare poster but long time lyrker of this site you start to notice things)

              Dean could be abrasive yes but he seemed to back up the things he said with valid points mostof the time.

              Not that I truly care he was banned. Its just the swiftness with the decision to ban him instead of trying to see why this particular instance was so upsetting to him seems a little harsh.
              Trying to build a community but banning some of the most active members of that community for petty issues seems counter productive to me.
              Then again I should probably stop talking about it so I dont get banned myself :(

                Please don’t paint Gematsu to be some oppressive site of mass bannings. We’ve banned maybe 6 or 7 users in the site’s lifetime of almost 5 years. The fact that the ban before Dean’s was very recent is merely a coincidence.

                Dean was previously banned on his old account, Malcolm Reynolds, but came back a few weeks later as Dean Winchester in what appeared, at first, to be a much more toned down appearance. There were more reasons for his ban today, and it wasn’t just a ‘swift decision’ as you put it, but one many comments in the making.

                  Aww and i just met him today and he is already dead :3

                  • PrinceHeir

                    Omae wo mou Shindeiru!!

                • PrinceHeir

                  eh i think Sal made the right choice.

                  he just doesn’t ban anyone outright like that.

                  i can see how Dean can be aggressive at times.

                  im sure Sal didn’t take the decision so lightly.

                  also i don’t like bans(no matter who you are), but sometimes it needs to be done.

        *tries to grab Dean’s hand as he falls over the cliff into the pit of Hell, but Dean just smiles with a single tear and let’s go and plummets to his death as he curses over and over*

  • Heistt

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It looks really cool, actually. :D

    • Haku_Luvs_You

    • Elvick

      Pointless Vita trashing. Can’t have a 3DS article without it. smh

      • HeatPhoenix

        He ain’t wrong though. I need a gif of Reggie punching Kaz in the face.

        • Elvick

          Or you could get a life.

          • HeatPhoenix

            Cool ad hominem bro.

    • weyou

      The only thing Disney brand can do better on Vita than 3DS is Kingdom Hearts. We haven’t seen it yet.

  • Hinataharem

    I could get behind this!
