Epic Mickey 2 concept covers

Leaked concept cover art

In a leaked and deleted Disney newsletter, Epic Mickey 2 has been announced. There’s no surprise about a successful game getting a sequel. In fact, most knew that production on EM2 was in full swing.

What is surprising are the details in the promotional newsletter:

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!

The biggest shocker to this letter is the announcement that the sequel will not be exclusive to the Wii. As a gift for my wife, Epic Mickey was one of the few justifications to turn on the Wii last year. However, my wife constantly says that the game should have been on other platforms.

Now, it appears that she will have her way. It’s unfortunate that Nintendo is losing another third-person exclusive title (like de Blob or No More Heroes), but it’s great for gamers to have choice.
