Eurogamer, Epic Mickey 2 was “revealed” in a Disney newsletter and then later edited. The game, according to the leak, will be available for Wii, PS3 and 360 for holiday 2012.
Here’s the meat:
“Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this all-new action-platforming game available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, Mickey embarks on an epic journey and is pulled back into a world filled with Disney’s forgotten characters. Players can choose to play single-player as Mickey or for the first time players can also choose two-player split screen mode. In the two-player mode one person can play as Mickey wielding magic paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and the second player can play as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit – Walt Disney’s first cartoon star – with the power to fly like a helicopter and use electricity to fight or friend enemies and solve challenges. Team-up and choose your path to save this forgotten world because the choices you make will alter the story and change the end of the game!”
If this all rings true, let’s hope that:
A) It’s a better game than the original
B) Disney has a thicker skin if it gets a little bit of criticism
C) See A
