Disney’s Epic Mickey may never have set the retail charts ablaze when it was first released, but it definitely showed a lot of potential. A couple of years later, and Warren Spector and Junction Point Studios are readying to release Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
The game takes place in the Wasteland – as did the previous game – a dilapidated alternate version of the Disneyland Park in California, where the all of the bright and cheerful aspects of the park have been replaced by bleak and dreary machinations, the twisted workings of a Mad Scientist who was the antagonist of the first Epic Mickey.
Junction Point and Disney have been slowly revealing more information about the different sub-lands within the Wasteland – each of those being inspired by the separate lands in the Disney Theme Park or certain rides – and today we can bring you some new screenshots of the latest area to be revealed, Autotopia. This is clearly based around the classic Disney car ride, Autopia, where visitors would drive miniature electric cars around a scenic futuristic track.
The Wasteland version of Autotopia is set within the Tomorrow City area of the park (inspired by Tomorrow Land in Disneyland), and will be filled with mechanical objects and car parts, as well as featuring a variety of clapped-out, retired cars from the rides, who will largely be a hinderance to you.
Welcome to Autotopia… Oswald and Mickey arrive from Ventureland after entering an area designated to the citizens as off limits by the Mad Doctor. They find the once grand racetrack cracked and polluted by horrific machines. Autotopia used to be one of the favourite racing tracks of Wasteland before it was lost in the Thinner Disaster, and was thought lost forever. The Mad Doctor, however, found the area and also found that it was perfect for his experiments…
