Mickey and Oswald have come quite a long way since the mixed reaction they got on the Nintendo Wii, and now Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is hitting three consoles, a handheld system, and two computer platforms.
Take a bow, Mr. Mouse. Not too shabby.
Warren Spector made the announcement today at San Diego Comic-Con, citing that the Mac and PC versions of the game would be sharing the same release date as the other versions on November 18th.
Joystiq has the full details:
The plan is for Disney’s Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two to launch on Xbox 360, PS3 with Move, Wii, PC and Mac on November 18, Junction Point founder Warren Spector said today at San Diego Comic-Con. The launch date was previously confirmed for consoles alone, including the 3DS tie-in title, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Illusion, which is also slated to drop on November 18.
Warren Spector also noted that he didn’t like having mute characters for the first Epic Mickey title, calling it “totally dumb” that no one spoke. Can’t really argue with him there.
That’s why it’s good to see some vocal talent is getting signed to the ranks, including a legend like Frank Welker. As Joystiq points out, he’s done just about every cartoon you probably watched (or still watch) when you were young.
Hell, he practically did every side voice in “Animaniacs” back in the day. Man, that was a good show.
