Disney’s Epic Mickey is getting a sequel and this time it is coming to the Xbox and PS3 alongside the Wii console where the game made its debut. Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Two, will feature drop-in and out co-op gameplay with Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Oswald is an AI-controlled character when playing alone and when a friend jumps in to play, they wield Oswald’s “remote control” of electricity. The game also features full voice acting that includes something for the Disney history books. It will be the first time ever that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit will have voice work done for his character.
Disney’s history is wrapped around the creation of incredible characters that stand the test of time and yet their forays, into the often times lucrative video games industry, usually fell short of expectations. Then Junction Point studio head Warren Spector was tasked with turning the latter history around and would attempt to do so with no less than Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The original title which launched as a Wii-exclusive had a respectable performance selling over a million copies but was held back by not launching on the popular HD consoles the Xbox 360 and PS3 and some game imperfections including poor game-play-camera handling.
It will be the first time ever that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit will have voice work done for his character.
The new game is expected to arrive this fall and will make use of the new voiced characters to create a musical of sorts within the game.
