Game designer Warren Spector revealed to the San Francisco Chronicle that Epic Mickey 2 will be a fully-voiced Disney musical.
“I’m such a geek about musicals,” he said. “I love the co-op and next-gen stuff, but for me, when a character breaks into song, which they do on a regular basis in this game, it’s magic.”
Epic Mickey 2 will include drop-in, drop-out co-op, with one player controlling Mickey and his paintbrush while the other takes charge of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit who can control electricity.
“You can sit down at any time with a friend who is playing as Mickey, and you can take control of Oswald,” Spector explained. “If you’re playing as a single-player, Oswald will be there every second of the game. He’s not just a multiplayer character. He’s a helper, whether you’re playing alone or with a friend or family member.”
EGM’s TAKE: A full-fledged Disney musical game? We must admit, we are certainly intrigued by this thought. Not many people could ever get past the horrible camera that was present in the first game, as it pretty much ruined the whole experience. Luckily, Spector and the team promise that they have completely reworked the camera system. Hopefully this time round Mickey will get his chance to shine at the top of the charts.
