Epic Mickey May Get a New Lick of Paint at E3

Rumours suggest graphics could change

It's been a few months since we last heard anything about Epic Mickey, the Warren Spector-led reinvention of the little mouse, but apparently that's for good reason. According to the latest Internet rumours, we could be seeing a very different Mickey emerge at E3 this month.

Whilst the original artwork showed off a dark, lean look, the first screenshots had a rather more plump and rubbery aesthetic that disappointed some gamers. Keen to bring the game's visuals closer to the concept artwork, it has apparently gone through a radical graphical overhaul that should hopefully be far more impressive.

With E3 kicking off two weeks today, we'll soon find out if Mickey's Wii paintbrush adventure can live up to its artistic potential.
