Something “Epic” from Warren Spector coming March 27, it’s probably Mickey
French gaming site, Nintendo Master report that an “epic” project from Warren Spector and Disney is going to be announced March 27.
This could mean quite a few things. however, as darkzero slept, mentions of an upcoming Epic Mickey 2 reveal was made back in early 2012 – so if you put Spector, Disney and the word “epic” together, and remember those early 2012 mentions, it really is kind of obvious where they are going with this one.
According to the newsletter that originally outed the game earlier this year, Epic Mickey 2 is an “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 two-player split screen mode.
In the two-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!”
It all sounds exciting, so it should be nice to see screenshots and video of the game come March 27.
darkzero gave the first Epic Mickey a 9/10 back in the crazy days of 2010.
