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.

Keep an eye out for these brand-new “Disney Epic Mickey” games – available this fall!


  • Can’t wait for this to be released. And how fitting that it be released on Mickey’s birthday.

  • Castle of Illusion was one of my favorite games on the Genesis growing up, I’m so glad to see that series return!
    Any news on a Collector’s Edition of Epic Mickey 2 for Wii?
    It would go great with the Collector’s Edition of Epic Mickey I have sitting on my shelf.

  • Did I see Oswald ears at Disney California Adventure last week? I know they were giving them out at E3 but I thought I saw the ear hats on sale at the front of the park, too. Was I mistaken?

  • Ican’t wait to play it on my PS3 with Move, it looks awesome. Is there any change the non Wii gamers will be able to play the first one to get the whole story?

  • I’m really excited about Epic Mickey 2!

  • SO HAPPY that it’s going to be available for PS3!! Will the first game be available for PS3 as well?
