The Great Circus Mystery Starring Mickey and Minnie, known as Mickey & Minnie: Magical Adventure 2 (ミッキーとミニー マジカルアドベンチャー２) in Japan, was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis and Game Boy Advance. It is the sequel to The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse and the second in the Magical Quest series. This time, the game features both mice, who must discover why the circus suffered an attack from Baron Pete.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The game drops the alternating two-player method in favor of simultaneous co-op. Another new feature is a password back-up.
Both Mickey and Minnie are identical gameplay-wise, and the costumes they receive don't differ from each other in any aspect except aesthetically.
The costumes include a sweeper, which can suck enemies and turn them into coins, a safari suit that can climb walls and swing from hooks and a cowboy suit that shoots corks and maneuvers by bouncing. The latter two outfits can be upgraded at a shop.
The Genesis version of the game includes a cosmetic change for the stage 5 boss and an extra room in stage 3.
In the GBA version (retitled Disney's Magical Quest 2), Mickey's eyebrows are removed during closeups of Mickey and the character select screen is different because Mickey had a slightly short face change appearance in the 21st century Mickey Mouse Cartoons. A save feature was added in the GBA Version as well.
Credits[edit | edit source]
Unlike the first game in the series, the Capcom staff members involved are merely credited by their company. This is somewhat rectified by the GBA version, which offers some staff members who may have been involved with the original version. One other known credit is the sound composer of the original version: Makoto Tomozawa, as revealed via Twitter.
