It seems that there will be a second Epic Mickey coming out, if an entry in a monthly newsletter is led to believe. The entry details how the game is going to be multiplatform and might also feature 2 player co-op with Oswald the Rabbit as the second player. It will also see a release during the Autumn of 2012. Below is what the entry supposably was, as the description was pulled from the final version of the newsletter (captured by StitchKingdom.com):
“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 2-player split screen mode. In the 2 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!”
So, Mickey will jump to two more platforms? That’s pretty good for all gamers. Also, 2 player co-op sounds like a good idea. I wonder what it will add to the overall game. Epic Mickey saw a release in 2009 only on Wii.
