Coming on November 18th, 2012, two years after the November 2010 release of the first Epic Mickey
for the Nintendo Wii, Epic Mickey 2
promises just as much delightfully dark adventure as the first game, this time getting Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 owners in on the fun as well, along with the expected Wii version. Epic Mickey
took place in the "Wasteland", a retirement-home-gone-wrong for forgotten Disney creations styled after the famous "real-life" Magic Kingdom theme parks (most notably Disneyland) all over the world, and gamers will find themselves trying to save Wasteland again through whatever means they see fit, good or bad.
From IGN.com:"In Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit -- Walt Disney's first cartoon star -- in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. The game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. Now, Mickey and Oswald must join forces as true partners -- Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. Unleash the power of creativity in an epic battle to save this magical world of Wasteland and change it forever in this heroic adventure!"
Be warned, disasters in Wasteland may have changed it from the place we knew in the first game, not to mention completely new areas to explore such as Frontierland, which you may recognize from Disneyland. In addition, Epic Mickey 2 is set to be a musical, and the songs will change based on Mickey and Oswald's behavior. And make sure to listen in closely, as Amazon.com's description of the game's features
tells us that Oswald, who has been a non-speaking character to this day, will be given a proper voice!
Are you excited for Epic Mickey 2? :D
