Disney's Mickey Mouse has been no stranger to video games over the years, from classic The Magical Quest and Illusion series to kart racers, and even Kingdom Hearts. His best friend, Donald Duck, has also been in the limelight plenty of times too — including a bigger role in Square Enix's action RPG series.
Perhaps one of the more notable and recent Mickey Mouse games is Epic Mickey, designed by Deus Ex creator Warren Spector. This Junction Point-Developed game got two sequels — Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two and the 3DS spin-off Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion. There was, however, one more game in development in the series that was sadly cancelled, and it would've starred everyone's favourite cantankerous duck — Epic Donald.

While we've heard tidbits and seen concept art over the years, very little footage from this game — which was in development between 2012 and 2013. But now, YouTuber Slope's Game Room has acquired a short clip from the game after it was sent in by an anonymous viewer of the show.
The footage (included in the video below) starts at around 18:40 and shows both Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse in the middle of what looks like a money vault. Another clip shows the pair running around, with Donald covered by a luminous green shield. This is the first time we've ever seen the game in motion, and it looks like it would've been a great continuation of the Epic Mickey series.
This spin-off was reportedly meant to be based on the DuckTales comics and many of Donald's family would've apparently made an appearance. hey, Scrooge McDuck might have taken us to the moon or something!
