Wii U Epic Mickey 2 May Not Feature Off-TV Play

Golly, Pluto!

At a preview event on Tuesday, a Disney Interactive employee apparently confirmed that Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Two will not include off-TV play. This means that you won’t be able to play the game solely on the Wii U GamePad.

Off-TV play was something Junction Studios would have liked to achieve, but due to time restrains it was impossible. A second attribute missing, but one we're not really too concerned about, is that solo players won't be able to use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk; they must make use of the GamePad during gameplay. Of course for co-op, the remote and Nunchuk can be used, but if you prefer this controller set up when playing alone, you're better off sticking with the Wii version.

Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Two is scheduled for release next month in North America on November 18th and Europe November 30th. Will the lack of off-TV play sway your decision when it comes to picking up the game?
