Epic Mickey 2 Revealed

A Disney newsletter sent out recently has accidentally confirmed the rumor that Epic Mickey 2 is in development.  The information in the newsletter stated that the sequel to the Wii exclusive will also be hitting the 360 and PS3 and will feature a co-op mode allowing players the chance to control Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, flying a helicopter and controlling electricity to fight and solve puzzles.

The following quote was pulled from the newsletter:

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!

Epic Mickey was a gorgeous platformer that had most reviewers torn leaving it with a Metacritic score of 73.  Some have praised it calling it charming, creative and culmination of everything uniquely Disney. Others have trashed it saying it’s mechanics are a generation behind.  Regardless, the idea of a multi-platform follow up, building and improving on the former’s shortcomings is exciting and hopefully will deliver.
