Stitch Kingdom, a blog on all things Disney, spotted a Disney newsletter today that confirmed the existence of Epic Mickey 2. The newsletter (and the post on Stitch Kingdom) was quickly dropped down the Memory Hole, but we do know that everyone’s favorite mascot will be pulling a multiplatform turn on the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 this time around. We also know that the game will include a two-player co-op mode with the second player taking control of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
Luckily, Eurogamer nabbed the full text of the press release before it was pulled. Check it out here:
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 two-player split screen mode. In the two-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 the newsletter is accurate, Epic Mickey 2 will be released during the 2012 Christmas season.
