Would also like to work with other Disney characters
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is out right now on Wii and Wii U. The game sees you painting your way through several Disney-esque levels with Mickey and his pal Oswald and is designed with two players in mind.
In an interview with Red Bull, Warren Spector, the man behind Epic Mickey, has hinted at a trilogy with a desire to add a third instalment to the series:
I'd love to see the Disney Epic Mickey series continue - there are plenty of stories still to tell about Wasteland and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse!
Epic Mickey 2 does incorporate some musical elements, but it looks as though he wants to improve on it further in the next game. When talking about the game’s soundtrack, Spector had this to say about a possible upcoming title:
We go a step further, changing the actual orchestration based on how you choose to deal with game challenges.
They're not interactive - in THIS game - but using songs as storytelling tools seemed necessary for a game that claims to honor Disney's creative history.
It’s not just Epic Mickey that interests the industry legend though – Spector also has a plethora of ideas for Disney’s other characters saying the team will “never run out of material”:
I'd love to see some Oswald games, where he's on his own. He deserves a shot at solo stardom. Then there are the ‘duck’ games - Donald, Scrooge, etc - that are just waiting to be made. And a bunch of us at Junction Point have thoughts about Goofy and the Gremlins and a hundred others.
Anyone who’s ever played Goof Troop on the SNES will certainly be hoping Goofy gets another game made about him – or maybe that’s just us…
