Epic Mickey sequel revealed, revoked

Epic Mickey is about to get even epic-er, with Disney accidentally revealing plans for a sequel: Multi-platform, multi-player, out by Christmas.

A recent newsletter from Disney outlined a few bits and pieces in store for Epic Mickey 2 – Player 2 takes on the role of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who can fly like a helicopter.

…since edited out, Eurogamer managed to snag the text from the newsletter, and it’s a little bit exciting.

Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this all-new action-platforming game available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, Mickey embarks on an epic journey and is pulled back into a world filled with Disney’s forgotten characters.

Players can choose to play single-player as Mickey or for the first time players can also choose two-player split screen mode. In the two-player mode one person can play as Mickey wielding magic paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and the second player can play as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit – Walt Disney’s first cartoon star – with the power to fly like a helicopter and use electricity to fight or friend enemies and solve challenges. Team-up and choose your path to save this forgotten world because the choices you make will alter the story and change the end of the game!

With Disney deleting that particular section of the newsletter, and not refering to it anywhere else, we’re guessing that a Big Reveal is in the works for a little later on.

The game will be a sequel to the Wii-exclusive Epic Mickey, released in 2010 from Warren Spector’s Disney-owned studio Junction Point.
