Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of 2 is coming to the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. In addition, it’ll be a musical starring not just Mickey Mouse but also Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
Associated Press was first with the story, before a tweet from Geoff Keighley confirmed that we’ll see some gameplay on GTTV tomorrow.
“We’ve had a team working on the camera from literally the day we finished the first game,” Warren Spector told AP. “They’ll be working on it until the day we ship the second game. (There have been) over 1,000 specific changes made to the camera. Our goal is that you will not have to touch the manual camera controls even once to play through the main story path of this game.”
In addition, Spector also revealed that co-op will be added into the new title, which will no doubt please those already excited about the game.
“I’m such a geek about musicals,” said Spector. “I love the co-op and next-gen stuff, but for me, when a character breaks into song, which they do on a regular basis in this game, it’s magic. It’s drop-in, drop-out co-op. You can sit down at any time with a friend who is playing as Mickey, and you can take control of Oswald.
“If you’re playing as a single player, Oswald will be there every second of the game. He’s not just a multiplayer character. He’s a helper, whether you’re playing alone or with a friend or family member.”
Spector also confirmed that he’s hired voice actors to provide both dialog to the game and music. Jim Dooley and Mike Himelstein, the composer and lyricist who wrote the music for Dorothy of Oz, are creating the original songs for the game.
We can’t wait to find out more.
