Game Profile

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions.

But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.

Features:

  • Wii U system players will utilize the Wii U™ GamePad to view a fully detailed, real-time map of Wasteland with waypoints and markers to help guide them through the game and complete the different quests and side-quests. Players will also be able to use the GamePad to access sketches and activate them to use in-game for a more immersive experience.
  • Players can play as Oswald in drop-in, drop-out 2-player co-op mode with “The Power of Two” evident as Oswald participates in Mickey’s adventure every step of the way.

-All in-game characters—most notably Oswald The Lucky Rabbit whose voice will be heard for the first time ever—are fully voiced by the official voice actors of those characters.

  • Players will experience Disney’s forgotten characters and attractions in all-new levels and further explore levels from the original “Disney Epic Mickey” game, but now changed, impacted by world-changing events that have shaken Wasteland apart. New 2D levels based on classic Disney animated films and shorts will offer compelling puzzle-based, platforming gameplay.
  • Players will enjoy an original game story co-written by award-winning American comic book writer, Marv Wolfman and Junction Point.
  • The storyline will feature a variety of new and returning characters that will further immerse players in Disney’s rich history while adversaries familiar and new will challenge players.
  • “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” is the first video game that can be described as a “musical,” where at various points during the adventure characters will express themselves and advance the plot by bursting into song. All songs feature original Disney-inspired music and lyrics. Players will also hear tunes and instrumentation that change based on their personal choices, which will ultimately allow each individual to “conduct” their own unique soundtrack.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two should, on paper, be an excellent game. The original Wii-exclusive title showed a great deal of promise but flawed execution, so optimistic logic suggested that the sequel would resolve those issues and build on the...

All I can say is that Junction Point and Warren Spector have developed a fantastic follow up to an already amazing experience. The time they have taken to grasp every detail of what is fun about the Mickey-Toon experience and bring it to life is outstanding. I can't wait to play this on the Wii U. It has a full co-op experience, and excellent voice acting. If you love the Disney experience the music only enhances the over all rhythm of drama, excitement, and fun of this product. Don't miss out on this one!

I hated playing this game so much because ... the controls for both Mickey and Oswald are real bad ... really, really bad. I constantly found myself not being able to move about the game-screen even upon simple tasking. Coming from a gamer who enjoys clocking games and playing through to the end I would not recommend it to anyone else, especially kids or casual gamers even to hardcore gamers it is frustrating. It appears that the developers have not bothered to play through the games themselves. The controls for the camera are also all over the place and are not centred properly within the gameplay. This is very sad because the Disney visuals are amazing and I loved the storyline plot but I would think twice, two times before buying this game. I wish that they had fixed these issues because I love the game itself but it is a slow unplayable joke thanks to the developers and I wish Disney had stayed with Square Enix on this game. Kingdom Hearts was adorable and the controls were from a developer who knew gameplay.

Also I forgot to mention NOTHING on the wii u game pad is able to be used the touch function is completely inaccessible and defunct. It is solely used as a lazy second pause screen and a drawing of a compass.
