Disney Illusion Island For Nintendo Switch Is 50% Off At Walmart

Disney's charming metroidvania is a great pick for the whole family.


Disney Illusion Island is a charming, family-friendly metroidvania with fantastic art direction, a wonderful soundtrack, and writing that's on par with modern Mickey Mouse cartoons. The Nintendo Switch-exclusive platformer launched last year at a budget price of $40. If you haven't played it yet, though, Walmart's current offer is a steal. You can snag a physical copy of Disney Illusion Island for only $20.

A big draw to this game--besides the vibrant art--is that it works brilliantly as either a solo or cooperative experience. Teaming up with up to three others is where the experience is at its best, as the squad of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy get to flex their animated muscles in stages where their unique talents shine.

There is no attack button or combat abilities in this game, as the action comes down to jumping, evasion, and gathering up tools to help you stay one step ahead of dastardly foes, but the challenge is just right for all ages. Plus, it's effortlessly charming with its visual and audio design.

"Illusion Island has a lot going for it: It looks great, controls wonderfully, is packed with charm and character, offers enjoyable exploration, and features a memorable multiplayer experience," Heidi Kemps wrote in GameSpot's Disney Illusion Island review. "If you're a big fan of the genre, you'll get a kick seeing little references to other all-time classics, too."
