Paint and thinner will once again alter the universe this November as Disney Interactive announces the US launch date for its highly-anticipated action adventure game – Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, this week.
E3 Expo attendees had the opportunity to experience the game as Mickey Mouse and Oswald as they joined forces for the first time to overcome obstacles in a game level inspired by the classic 1937 Silly Symphonies cartoon, “The Old Mill.” Players also engaged in a heroic struggle to save Wasteland as they battled a giant animatronic blotworx dragon modeled after the Pete’s Dragon Float from “The Main Street Electrical Light Parade,” long a fan favorite at the Disney theme parks.
Development for Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for the Xbox 360 is being led by Disney Interactive’s Junction Point as they return Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. For the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with the magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with a 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 Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two has been dated for November 18th, 2012 in the US.
