Disney Epic Mickey 2 has been ‘a thing’ now for quite some time. Despite what you might have heard, the original game, was quite a success on the Wii, selling over one million units on launch in the US alone and most likely more than that around the world since its release in late 2010.
Critics were mixed, however, but El33tonline thought it was excellent, despite its problems.
Good to hear, then, that head of development studio Junction Point and creative director on Epic Mickey, Warren Spector, is set to make an ‘epic’ announcement very soon.
While we don’t speak ‘The French,’ Stephany Nunneley at VG247 can (or can use Google Translate) and managed to decipher a post on Nintendo Master, revealing that Spector is to make an announcement regarding an “epic project” on March 27th.
Rumours doing the rounds suggest that a supposed Disney Epic Mickey 2 is in development for Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and will this time include split-screen co-operative play, with a release planned for the last quarter of 2012.
As fans of the original Disney Epic Mickey, we can’t wait for March 27th to see what Warren Spector has to say!
