Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - First details emerge

Around the office we were big fans of Disney's Epic Mickey, which was Mickey's best adventure in gaming to date and one of the most creative titles the Wii had seen. We weren't sure about the series future at the time, but after months of rumors, the Associated Press has confirmed what we expected: There will be an Epic Mickey 2! And it's not only coming to the Wii, but also the PS3 and 360. Here's the first official screen:

Officially titled Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, the sequel is helmed by Deus Ex/Thief mastermind and the series director for Epic Mickey, Warren Spector. The updates mentioned for the game include full voice acting, an improved camera, and an increased emphasis on music, but most central to the game seems to be co-op between Mickey and his former rival Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The co-op is apparently drop-in/drop-out, meaning if you play single player, Oswald will still be there the entire time as an AI character. Spector also describes the game as a "musical," though he didn't go into much detail about how that will work within the gameplay.

Though we know the platforms, no date was given in the story. You can read the whole thing here. We'll have more info on the title very soon.

    Drop-in/drop-out co-op? YAY! (It had better be online, too.) Spector back? YAY! Voice Acting? HOLY HELL HOW DID THEY MISS THIS THE FIRST TIME?!

    A bold new direction for the Army of Two franchise, to be sure.

    God damn was that funny.

    I loved the hell out of Epic Mickey and am really exited to see a sequel. I'm hoping they'll also remaster the original for PS360.

    YES! That would be fantastic. I always wanted to play the first one, but I just... can't... quite... justify buying a Wii, no matter how hard I try. I'd pay full price for the original game on 360. I really would.

    I played and loved the original on Wii and would gladly play it again as a remastered "director's cut" for 360/PS3.

    Color me excited. I liked Epic Mickey and am glad to see its sequel expand to more consoles and to a wider audience.
