THE BUZZ: A leaked Disney newsletter has apparently outed Disney Epic Mickey 2, sequel to the Wii platformer.

The letter has since been removed, however website StitchKingdom managed to capture a copy before it was. According to the information the game will be, ”available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii,” and will allow a second player to join the action. The full letter reads:

“Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this all-new action-platforming game available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, Mickey embarks on an epic journey and is pulled back into a world filled with Disney’s forgotten characters.

“Players can choose to play single-player as Mickey or for the first time players can also choose 2-player split screen mode.

“In the 2 player mode one person can play as Mickey wielding magic paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and the second player can play as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit – Walt Disney’s first cartoon star – with the power to fly like a helicopter and use electricity to fight or friend enemies and solve challenges.

“Team-up and choose your path to save this forgotten world because the choices you make will alter the story and change the end of the game!”

EGM’s TAKE: The first game enjoyed a successful launch, however the constraints of the Wii held it back, so it’s no surprise to see a multi-platform release mentioned.
