Sadly, it stumbled with the sequel and the studio was promptly shuttered by Disney. Had Junction Point...
Learn how the series came together
Disney Epic Mickey could be argued as being something of a letdown on the Wii. After an initial reveal showcasing remarkably dark concept art and promising a dynamic and choice-driven narrative, many saw it as a bold and promising new direction to take Disney's famous mouse. The resultant game, and its sequel for...
What a lucky rabbit
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is the game on everyone's lips at the moment, and according to Junction Point top dog Warren Spector we'll only have six months to wait to play Mickey's Wii sequel. Nintendo Master — the same site that tipped the Disney Epic Mickey 2 press event — rep
Not a weak port
The not-at-all shocking announcement of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two came with the even less surprising revelation the game's heading to PS3 and Xbox 360 too, leading some to worry Wii owners would get a weak port of the HD versions.

What could it be?!
After months of speculation, rumour and cat-out-of-bag-letting, it seems Junction Point is finally ready to lift the lid on Disney Epic Mickey 2.

It's bound to happen
Rumours of a sequel to Disney Epic Mickey continue to swirl around the Internet like paint in a pot, with a Disney newsletter seemingly outing the game before its official announcement.

Good start for the mouse
It may have divided players and critics, but Disney Epic Mickey did the business at the cash registers, shifting 1.3 million copies across North America in December.

Everybody makes mistakes
Junction Point's Disney Epic Mickey is finally out and racking up some favourable reviews, but one bugbear appears in the majority of reviews: the camera system, which has drawn the criticism of many.

But it'll make you smile too
It's not long until you can see if Disney Epic Mickey lives up to the promise of its title, and this latest behind-the-scenes video might sway you one way or the other as it discusses the game's musical score.

Also includes a dash of Okami and a pinch of Deus Ex
Epic Mickey was announced back in November but information has been a bit scarce until now. Game Informer had an in-depth preview in the US but details were for their readers' eyes only, but the UK's Official Nintendo Magazine recently got a chance to look at this game and kindly shared their thoughts.
