An Introduction to Disney Epic Mickey 2

by on May 16, 2012

An-Introduction-to-Disney-Epic-Mickey-2Take a look at how the game is getting on, as Junction Point release their first behind the scenes look at Epic Mickey 2.

Warren Spector and his crew talk through the design philosophy behind the game, and in particular the focus on co-op. The introduction of co-op will be a hugely welcome edition to the game, with players taking control of both Mickey and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

There are other improvement besides co-op, with Spector previously speaking about being able to dynamically tackle puzzles, with players seeing the consequences to their actions in-game.

Check out the video below to see the game in action. It’s certainly looking like a big step up from first game, which was released on Wii back in 2010.

Did you play the first Epic Mickey, is so what would do you want to see added to the sequel?

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will be available on Wii and now also in HD on Xbox 360 and PS3 when it launches this fall.

    Didn’t get the chance to try the first but, even though some of the reviews were less than stellar, the concept of reinventing Mickey Mouse to drag him out of the 50’s interested me. Brave choice by Disney to go to Spector, though I’m not sure (from what I read) that Spector was all that brave at the end of the day.

    Looking forward to see what this new title brings on the more powerful consoles.

      The first was the definition of average. It was “okay”, but it didn’t live up to the promise of the early videos. It didn’t look nearly as good as it should have, so hopefully being on Xbox 360 and PS3 will bring out the stunning visuals the game could have had.

        It did amuse me when one of the guys on there said, “We were able to use the power of the next-gen consoles to allow us to create more.”

        PS3/360 were ‘next gen’ 6 years ago 😉
