How epic? _So_ epic.

It sure is a good time to be a Disney and Nintendo fan. Not only do DS gamers now have their hands on a new Kingdom Hearts game, Wii owners will be getting in on a new House of Mouse exclusive: Epic Mickey.

Not much has been known about this secret Junction Studios project other than it is said to be steampunk-influenced. Based on the latest issue of GameInformer and its cover (that should be hitting subscribers around the 12th), we also know that Mickey is armed with a brush of sorts and that the art direction will probably be darker than the mouse is accustomed to.

Even those that aren't big Mickey fans will want to keep an eye on this one, as a certain Mr. Warren Spector has his hands all over this. If the name isn't ringing any bells, perhaps PC titles Deus Ex, Thief, System Shock and Wing Commander will; he's played large roles in all of these acclaimed titles.

More as it comes!
