Last week, during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, Disney Interactive made the announcement that “Disney Epic Mickey” fans have been waiting for: the newest installment, “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two,” will be released on November 18, 2012.
The game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But this time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces to overcome obstacles in a game level inspired by the classic 1937 Silly Symphonies cartoon, “The Old Mill.”
“I think players are going to be excited,” said Warren Spector, creative director and vice president, Junction Point. “They will need to determine who their friends really are, as they team up Mickey Mouse and Oswald to restore balance in Wasteland.”
“Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” will also feature other new elements:
- Players can play as Oswald in drop-in, drop-out 2-player co-op mode.
- Oswald The Lucky Rabbit’s voice will be heard in the game, for the first time ever.
- New 2D levels based on classic Disney animated films and shorts will offer puzzle-based, platforming gameplay.
- The franchise returns to the Wii, and expands to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
But “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” isn’t the only new “Disney Epic Mickey” game fans can look forward to. “Disney Epic Mickey: Power Of Illusion” for the Nintendo 3DS allows players to infiltrate the Castle of Illusion as Mickey Mouse – furthering the Wasteland saga with a completely new story and adventure.
