The game will return to ‘The Wasteland’ and revisits some areas from the previous game. Oswald the rabbit will join Mickey in the co-op mode, Mickey armed with with a brush whilst Oswald wields a remote control.

The composer and lyricist who wrote the music for the upcoming animated film ‘Dorothy of Oz’, Jim Dooley and Mike Himelstein, will be writing the tunes for the new game.

The camera will also be fixed, “(There have been) over 1,000 specific changes made to the camera. Our goal is that you will not have to touch the manual camera controls even once to play through the main story path of this game,” said Spector.

  1. Fantastic news. Was hoping they ported over the first one since it could use the ps move control(not sure about kinect control) but i guess not. glad we are getting the second one though

  2. Sweet! Hopefully there will be an HD remastering of the original one aswell.

  3. Damn. Was hoping for a Vita version (as with pretty much every game announcment these days). Still. Woop! PS3 version for me.

  4. do i smell a PS3 version with epic mickey 1 on the disk?

    • Yes….surely ^_^

    • That would be awesome, despite the mediocre reviews I still want to play it at some point :)

  5. Surprised to see it have a sequel after the somewhat disappointing sales of the original. However, that is surprised in a good way and I can’t wait to try this game on PS3!

  6. “The camera will be fixed”

    Oh praise be to jebus!! That was one of the things that ruined the first for me.

  7. Ah this could be interesting, the first looked like a good idea but I never had the chance to buy it.

    ..but you know it’ll be nice if it was announced for the Vita since now it’ll be my prefered console for stuff like on PS3.

    • Agreed, I dont have time to PS3 atm, but my Vita gets a couple of hours use every day now. Commuting is so much fun!

  8. This is brilliant news, looking forward to this one.

  9. Awesome, really enjoyed the original!

  10. Don’t really know much about the first one, but it sounds like this could be cool.
