After painting the town every color imaginable in the original hit, Mickey Mouse looks like he’ll be back with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit as Epic Mickey 2 appears to be in early development. While it isn’t yet a certainty that the game will indeed happen, Disney is doing a little online marketing to gauge interest in the sequel.
Destructoid is reporting that Epic Mickey 2 is now beyond the “purely theoretical” stages” and has even had four possible choices for box art unveiled as well.
Check out the four box art choices being shown for Epic Mickey 2
Possible titles for the upcoming game include:
- Epic Mickey 2
- Epic Mickey 2: Return of the Mad Doctor
- Epic Mickey 2: Mystery on Main Street
- Epic Mickey 2: The Power of the Two
If the game does indeed happen, it will be hitting the three major systems including the XBox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii.
One of the early, and cooler, gameplay details that have been revealed so far is that of two-player split screen play. This would allow one player to act as Mickey Mouse and another to be Oswald so they can work together in accomplishing certain feats.
When an official announcement is made either way regarding Epic Mickey 2, it will be posted here so stay tuned. Gamestops in New Orleans, Metairie, Harahan, Harvey, Gretna, and the Westbank will all likely offer up awesome add-ons for pre-orders as well.
