Rumor: Epic Mickey 2 Could Be A Thing

epicmickey2.jpg

According to an anonymous "tipster" (i.e. someone who lucked into an online survey and doesn't know the meaning of NDA), Destructoid has images of potential artwork for a sequel to Disney's Epic Mickey. They're also testing out a variety of names, most of them revolving around the concept of two, as this game would introduce co-op with one player taking the role of Mickey's "brother" Oswald the rabbit.

Epic Mickey wasn't the industry-shifting behemoth that one might expect from the pre-release hype, but I bet it sold better than you thought it did. There's no word on potential systems these might show up on, however the box shapes seem to imply they're not talking about handhelds. I wouldn't be shocked if they move the series off the Wii to the HD systems, or possibly the Wii U to try and keep their stable of Nintendo fans. Official game announcements aren't terribly common between now and the end of winter, so we may have to wait a while to get anything official about the game, unless this leak forces them into the open.

Looks like Epic Mickey 2 may be in development [Destructoid]

sort of bummed it isn't Epic Minnie/Donald/Goofy, but what can you do?

Apparently if this isn't just a rumour [as the masses of information this survey gives leads me to suspect], then this is actually, supposedly, for the PS3, 360 and Wii [the later of which also makes me think this is BS].

I would love a sequel though - but it'd had better have a good camera and a less tedious first half hour's beginning [aka the bit before you reach Mean Street].

I would really, really like to see more than one save slot this time around. Having one accidental button push result in my needing to start the entire game over -- because it took the wrong conversation option, caused a quest to fail and then immediately autosaved -- pretty much ruined the game for me.

I know, morality blah blah choices blah blah. If there's one thing a Mickey Mouse game needs to be, it's escapist, and worrying about every single action I take is something I don't want to do unless I'm billing by the hour.

Other than that, spend some time fixing the camera and I'll probably buy it, especially if there's a 360 version.

"Could Be A Thing"? What the hell does that mean?

Keith, it means it's something that could possibly exist. It's a turn of phrase.
