Warren Spector's maligned Wii-exclusive didn't exactly set the world on fire. It didn't cover it with ink either. A second outing on new platforms with new features might fix that though.
A leaked Disney Newsletter discusses the sequel to Epic Mickey and one of its new modes: Co-op. The letter reads:
Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this all-new action-platforming game avaiailable for Xbox 360, PS3, 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-players 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!
Even the most boring outings are getting sequels these days. We'll be sure to keep GameRevolution reader up to date as the story develops.
