Time to team up

It seems to be a week of news about Disney Epic Mickey: The Power of Two, due to arrive on Wii this November. Yesterday Warren Spector said he was proud that Epic Mickey 'polarised people'; he'll no doubt share his thoughts on the original, sequel and 3DS spin-off Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion when he appears at this year's Comic-Con International 2012, as part of a panel talking about the game.

Disney has also released a story trailer that introduces the plot for the sequel, with the spoiler that Mickey triumphed at the end of the first game, surprisingly. It also introduces the musical aspect of this title, with the first game's villain breaking into song to explain that he's now a changed man. Details on the time and venue for the Comic-Con panel, in addition to the new trailer, are below.

Disney Interactive is happy to announce that the highly-anticipated Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two video game will be featured in a panel at the Comic-Con International 2012 show in San Diego on Sunday, July 15th at 1:00pm in Room 25ABC. Participating in the panel are video game designer Warren Spector of Disney Interactive’s Junction Point, Peter David, award-winning comic writer and author of the upcoming Disney Epic Mickey 2 Graphic Novel and Marv Wolfman, award-winning American comic book writer and co-writer of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. In addition, please find below the never-before-seen opening movie for the game titled “A Story Begins.”

The Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two video game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners - Mickey with the magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with a powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play further enhances the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players tackle challenges the way they want to in order to explore a variety of possibilities and storylines, but always with consequences for their chosen actions.
