“Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” Announced For Multiplatform Release This Fall

Disney Interactive has announced the sequel to the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey video game, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. In Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Created by industry leader Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will return the franchise to the Wii but also expands to HD consoles including the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with full PlayStation Move support this Fall. Check out the announcement trailer below:

 

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with his magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play further enhances the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions. – Disney Interactive

Sound and audio is a new major focus in this game as it is the first video game that can be described as a “musical.” Disney Interactive has enlisted the help of Emmy award-winning composer James Dooley and noted lyricist Mike Himelstein to create these musical gameplay elements throughout the adventure. Many times characters will advance the plot by breaking out in song, with all-original music and lyrics. Players will hear tunes and instrumentation that change based on their personal choices, ultimately allowing each player to “conduct” their own unique soundtrack. In addition,the game will have full voice overs for all characters—including Oswald The Lucky Rabbit whose voice will be heard for the first time in any medium.

So make sure to look out for Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two this Fall on Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3!
