Epic Mickey 2 Debut Trailer

on March 25, 2012 2:00 PM

If you dig on some Mickey Mouse gaming but aren’t into Kingdom Hearts, Warren Spector’s got your back with the upcoming Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2 — and we’ve got the debut trailer for you. This sequel includes a strong co-op element, and the story will place more emphasis on the character of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, hence “the Power of 2” addendum to the title.

As previously announced, the game will include co-op multiplayer, but that is, perhaps, not the most amusing element of the game. In a GDC interview led by Associated Press, Epic Mickey’s designer Warren Spector admits “I’m such a geek about musicals. I love the co-op and next-gen stuff, but for me, when a character breaks into song, which they do on a regular basis in this game, it’s magic.” He goes on to say how the game couldn’t properly honor the spirit of Old Disney which both Mickey and Oswald embody without a strong musical element. As long as the music in this is better than the lame rhythm minigames in Kingdom Hearts 2, I’ll stand behind Spector’s opinion. Check out the debut trailer after the break!

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
