This marks his first appearance in a video game in thirty years.
Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey, the wildly popular incarnation of the world’s first (and most popular) mascot, is finally coming to Disney Infinity, Disney Interactive’s own take on Activision’s wildly successful Skylanders franchise, it was confirmed today.
This incidentally marks the first appearance of Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey… ever. The toy figure will be available at stores nationwide starting this coming Saturday, February 8, for $12.99, and this will allow players to not only unlock the character in game, but also unlock Sorcerer Apprentice Mickey’s Toy Box, which will bring quirky, unique, fantasic adventures to the Toy Box mode.
Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey joins other popular and enduring Disney and Pixar characters in Disney Infinity; curiously enough, characters from Marvel and LucasArts, both recent acquisitions by Disney, have remained absent from the game thus far. Maybe they will be coming up in a future update when sales start sagging, or in the inevitable sequel? We’ll see.
