Is Mickey Mouse Returning to Video Games?
Mickey Mouse could be making his return to video games in Autumn of 2012 if you are to believe this leaked newsletter from Disney D23, the official House of Mouse fan club. The email has since stopped circulation – as the original source, Stitch Kingdom has since taken it down, but Game Informer snatched up the text. The mouse, with added tins of paint, could be on his way back. The sequel to 2010’s Epic Mickey, is also rumoured to be making its way to PS3 & 360, as well as returning to the Nintendo Wii. The newsletter read;
“Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this 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 2-player 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!”
So, our choices make a difference eh?…If there’s a conversation wheel, I’m in. Mickey, Oswald & Shepard take on the galaxy…
