Disney Interactive has announced that Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will be a launch title for Nintendo’s Wii U on 30th November 2012. Featuring the return of Mickey Mouse to Wasteland, he’ll be joined by Oswald the Lucky Rabbit as the two join forces, with Mickey’s magic brush and Oswald’s electricity summing remote.
Disney Interactive vice president and general manager of production Bill Roper states, “It’s exciting to bring Nintendo fans ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ on Nintendo’s revolutionary new game system. The technological advances of the Wii U system have allowed us to enhance player direction and provide our fans with an immersive as well as unique gaming experience.”
The new co-op play sets to introduce a “PlayStyle Matters” approach, pioneered by Warren Spector where “players tackle challenges the way they want to in order to explore a variety of possibilities and storylines, but always with consequences for their chosen actions”.
The Wii U GamePad will provide a real-time map of Wasteland with way-points and markers to help guide players through the different quests and side-quests. It also allows players to utilize sketches within the game
