I am the biggest Disney fan I know. Like seriously, most would tell you it’s kinda scary of how big of a fan I am. With that being said, I was unnaturally excited for Disney Epic Mickey. And of course, like most, I was also hugely disappointed by it. If you didn’t play it, you didn’t miss much. The camera was a worse enemy than the toughest boss, in a game where rebuilding or destroying the environment was the whole purpose, it didn’t even save your destroying/rebuilding progress as you went from one location to another, and it was a tad annoying to get from one place to another. By all accounts, the game was a flop.
So why on earth would they think of making a second one? According to a recent survey/poll, it looks like they are shopping around box art ideas among a few other tidbits of info. Rumor has it that the game just might be making it’s way to the Wii, PS3 and 360, and it might have 2-player split screen.
I am not sure how to feel about this. A new Epic Mickey could be cool, if they fix all the mechanic issues from the first and if they spend a bit more time paying attention to the small details, something Walt himself was always so adamant on doing. So, I guess we will just have to wait and see.
