Disney's Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (PSV)

Gamers play as Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney's first cartoon star. Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey and Oswald to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. Mickey and Oswald join forces as partners, Mickey with his magical paintbrush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with a remote control that allows him to command electricity.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is rated "E" for "Everyone" by the ESRB and is available for the PS Vita at an MSRP of $29.99.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (PSN/XBLA/PC)

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara brings together Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and its sequel, Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara. The game is fully updated with HD graphics and additional features.

The titles mix 2-D side-scrolling with action RPG gameplay. Up to four players can battle online or locally against the monsters with a mix of magic, melee and ranged attacks. Chronicles of Mystara offers drop-in/drop-out online gaming for up to four players. There's the classic arcade mode, which has paths and multiple endings, and there's a House Rules feature, which offers stackable options to customize gameplay. As an example, Vampirism awards health for every attack on an enemy and Lockpick causes all chests to be open.

Chronicles of Mystara also features a Character Visualizer, which lets players track which characters they and their friends use most often to help create a more balanced multiplayer dungeon party. Further gameplay stats are tracked on a global leaderboard.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is available on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Steam for 1,200 Microsoft points or $14.99/€14.99/£11.99.
