Looks like there's going to be an Epic Mickey sequel, and it is heading to Xbox 360. Accidentally revealed by a Disney newsletter, Epic Mickey 2 will hit in Autumn this year. The original game, a 3D platformer developed by legendary designer Warren Spector, was a Wii-exclusive.
The Disney newsletter, which has since been edited, also revealed that the game will feature split screen co-operative play, with the second player taking control of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, one of Disney's earliest characters.
"Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series," said the original newsletter. "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 2-player split screen mode. In the 2 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!"
