Earlier today, Disney Interactive that they were developing Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This game will allow players to play as both Mickey Mouse and his olden predecessor Oswald the Lucky Rabbit; two players will be able to play at the same time, with drop-in, drop-out multiplayer. The game also features a number of original musical numbers, significant amounts of voice acting, and interactive instrumentation that changes depending on how the player goes through the game.
“In the first Disney Epic Mickey title, fans embraced Mickey as a true video game hero and welcomed Oswald back into the Disney family with open arms,” said John Pleasants, co-president, Disney Interactive Media Group. “Now, as the vision for the Disney Epic Mickey franchise advances, fans and gamers across all platforms will experience completely new ways to embrace the immeasurable vault of Disney characters and attractions.”
A trailer for the game was released earlier this week, and can be found below.

It sounds like they’re trying to make Epic Mickey 2 closer to a Disney feature film than the original was, which is an interesting idea. I think there’s a ton of potential in this franchise, and I want Warren Spector to bring it out.
