A new sequel for the Disney's Epic Mickey video game may be on its way
At this point, it seems that any relevant evidence of the game's existence has been pulled from sources. However, an article from StitchKingdom.com, a site dealing with Disney related news and information, suggests that Disney said in a official newsletter that Epic Mickey 2 was on its way. Disney may have added that in the newsletter as an accident, because now the information is gone. So, don't we still have that article from StitchKingdom.com? Nope. The article has been pulled from the web as well. A GameInformer article mentions that they saw the important information before it was completely erased. The information provided suggests that the Disney Newsletter says:
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 Disneys forgotten characters. Players can choose to play single-player as Mickey or for the first time players can also choose 2-player split screen mode. In the 2 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 Җ Walt Disneys first cartoon star Җ 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!
This information suggests a few very interesting details. First of all, the game might be multi-platform. The first Epic Mickey game was a Nintendo Wii exclusive, so Epic Mickey 2 would get in the hands of more gamers this time around. Also, this new sequel will feature a co-op option. Other missing parts of the newsletter suggest that the game will come out around Fall 2012.
If this game is actually happening, then a official confirmation will most likely be posted soon.
