Developer Dlala Studios and publisher Walt Disney Games released Disney Illusion Island, a 2D Metroidvania-esque platformer, exclusively on Switch earlier this year. It was nominated for Best Family Game at The Game Awards 2023 – check out all the winners here – and now, Dlala has revealed it is launching new content this week.
More specifically, the Keeper Up update will go live in Disney Illusion Island for free on Wednesday, December 13. It includes new time trial challenges, quality of life updates like an improved map, and more.
“In this fast-paced new experience, players must try and beat the clock and show off their parkour prowess, thanks to a set of new challenges arranged by the ‘Mavens of Monoth,’ a group of ‘old Monoth’ enthusiasts who want to see if anyone knows how to navigate these lands better (and faster) than them,” a press release reads. “Upon entering a course, a timer will tick away as players scramble to grab collectibles through remixed areas of the world, making their way to the finish line in the best time possible.”
Elsewhere in the Keeper Up update, Dlala studios says Disney Illusion Island will receive “a host of quality of life updates, including new accessibility features, new gallery unlocks, and an updated map.”
Disney Illusion Island is available exclusively on Switch, and the new Keeper Update goes live this week on December 13.
