Disney Paints A New Epic Mickey 2 Trailer

Posted by Shaan Joshi

Now with 100% more Warren Spector

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is set to release next month, and to celebrate we've been given a new video which shows off some paint and thinner gameplay. Here's the official blurb:

This new video features exciting gameplay as game developer Warren Spector discusses Mickey’s magic paint brush and his use of “Paint and Thinner” as he embarks on an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery in Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions.

Players’ use of Paint and Thinner throughout the game further enhances 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.

While the Wii version will see Mickey splash paint and thinner around with similar controls to its predecessor, we heard recently that the Wii U version will be played with the GamePad in single player, not the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. That's a choice to consider while you check out the new (multiplatform) trailer below.

Is it me or is the wiiU box the tallest?, doesn't matter to me because I'll be DLing it, but still

Looking mighty tempting, and reminds me of Super Mario 64, which I love. That said though, I am torn between this and Assassins Creed 3.

Not to be overly critical, but 100% more of something that didn't exist is still nothing.

EDIT: Ergo, if Warren Spector was not in the previous trailer, then he would still be absent from this new trailer if it had 100% more of him.

I think I am going to get the Wii version and not wait until I obtain a Wii U. I feel like from what I have read, the Wii U version is a rushed port of the Wii game done by an outside company, so while the graphics may be better, I feel like gameplay elements will suffer.



MrWalkieTalkie said:

@therick112 Im not sure if the gameplay will change or not, after all, the Wii U still uses the Wii Remote & Nunchuk so why would it be different from the Wii's gameplay? Also the Wii U screenpad is optional from what I've heard.

Sigh... 100% of 0 is still 0... 100% more of something is the equivalent of twice as much.

You guys need to work on your math.

@MrWalkieTalkie: No, it doesn't. The Wii U has the option for the Wiimote/Nunchuk combo only in co-op - in single player mode, the GamePad is the mandatory form of control.

New video, still not interested in the slightest. It doesn't jump at me like I hoped it would. Oh well, there are various other games to look forward to.

Never played Epic Mickey, but I've always been a Mickey Mouse fan, and this game looks really cool. So I might end up getting this actually.

@HarmoKnight i dnt think its been confirmed as a DL title. But I do hope any of the store releases will be able to dl them. And they are still releasing it for the Wii so they did both systems? Then why not make the Wii U version work with the Wiimote?



antipop621 said:

The choice of platforms is making this a tough decision for me. I think I want the regular Wii version just for consistency.



Kyloctopus said:

So thinner isn't evil? But when Yen Sid said "Thin it to nothingness" it sounded quite evil.



Hokori said:

@Assassin87 Well POI is a DL and Nintendo said once WiiU hits more 3rd parties will be available and they both release on Nov 18 and Nintendo publishes Epic Mickey in Japan, so I can see PO2 being download at some point




Gutted not to be getting this in HD Wii U form because of the poor choice of control method employed. This game NEEDS the wiimote and nunchuck for the proper game experience IMO. Like a step forward for the series having it in HD on the Wii U and a step back by using an archaic control method. "Point and paint/thin" is made for wiimote and nunchuck for heaven's sake. 11th hour job so maybe not entirely Disney's fault.




Wii version over 15 quid cheaper in amazon uk with this superior control method. Just non-HD of course

I might just got for the standard Wii version as it's cheaper,and also those brilliant controls,but we wait and see.
