While nothing is set in stone yet, many rumors have been flying around the internet about Epic Mickey 2 lately. The most recent one came out a few days ago stating that Disney actually revealed some details about the game in their latest newsletter e-mail. Some of the more exciting details discussed in it were the fact that this game will be a multiplatform release (360, PS3, and Wii), and it will feature a 2 player Co-Op option where players will be able to play as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
Here is what the message says:
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!
If any of this is true, then I can not wait to get my hands on the game. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until later on this year to do so because as of right now Epic Mickey 2 is slated for a fall 2012 release.
