Disney Interactive Launches Disney Epic Mickey 2

BURBANK, Calif. - (November 18, 2012) - Today Disney Interactive announces the availability of "Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two," the sequel to the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Disney Epic Mickey" video game. "Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two" is now available for the WiiTM and Wii UTM systems from Nintendo, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. In addition "Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion," the first Nintendo 3DSTM title for "Disney Epic Mickey", is also available at major retailers nationwide.

In "Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two," gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. Created by industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio, "Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two" returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners - Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.

"Mickey Mouse is one of the most beloved characters of all time," said Warren Spector, vice president and creative director, Disney Interactive’s Junction Point. "I feel incredibly lucky to have been given the opportunity to once again help craft his latest journey and at the same time bring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit back in such an amazing and innovative way, by allowing this once forgotten silent cartoon star to get a voice for the first time in history."

The game’s new co-op play between Mickey and Oswald further enhances the idea that "PlayStyle Matters" - a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector. Through "PlayStyle Matters," players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.

Co-written by award-winning comic book writer, Marv Wolfman, in collaboration with Junction Point, "Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two" features a unique soundtrack created by Emmy award-winning composer, Jim Dooley and songwriter Mike Himelstein to deliver the first-ever video game musical.

"We continually strive to develop interactive content that resonates across Disney’s broad fan base," said John Pleasants, co-president, Disney Interactive. "Our goal was to capture the nostalgic feeling that makes the Disney experience so magical, and it is clear that we’ve accomplished that with ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ exceptionally well."

In addition to the console titles, "Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion" for the Nintendo 3DS created by critically acclaimed DS developer DreamRift in collaboration with Disney Interactive’s Junction Point, offers a unique drawing and painting functionality that allows players to create rough versions of objects that magically transform into classic Disney-style 2D illustrations. Utilizing the game’s unparalleled dual screen integration, players then move their creations to the top screen where they are further transformed into full-color, fully-rendered 3D visuals.

Paying tribute to the classic Sega Genesis title "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse," "Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion" focuses on the fabled Castle of Illusion, which has fallen into Wasteland along with the evil witch Mizrabel, villainess from the classic "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse." Now an unwilling inhabitant of Wasteland, Mizrabel unleashes a plot to escape using the Castle of Illusion to imprison and drain the cartoon essence from currently famous Toons. Players will take on the role of Mickey Mouse as he utilizes his magical brush to wield paint and thinner to confront Mizrabel and save the Toons.

"Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two" is rated ‘E’ for Everyone by the ESRB, and is now available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 and Wii U for a suggested retail price of $59.99 and Wii for a suggested retail price of $49.99. "Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion" is also rated ‘E’ for Everyone by the ESRB and is now available on the Nintendo 3DS for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
