In a slip-up that’s all too common for our era of over-saturated social media markets, Nintendo Magazine France has revealed something they likely ought to have kept quiet a little longer. On their official Twitter account, a spokesperson for the magazine writes (translated from the original French):
Presentation of Epic Mickey 2 will take place next week. A 3DS version, Power of Illusion, as well as a “classic” 2D will also be previewed.
According to CVG, this follows reports that veteran producer and designer for Epic Mickey, Warren Spector, is to unveil an “epic” project on March 27th, with many assuming this to be the scheduled announcement for the sequel.
This isn’t the first time details of Epic Mickey 2 have been leaked. Earlier this year a statement from Disney was released ahead of time, stating that the sequel would be heading multi-platform and would feature co-op play; though it was quickly removed, we have it here in full:
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!
Assuming this won’t affect the March 27th announcement, we will be sure to bring you the official word next week.
