Time traveling dimension hoppers from a universe of electrical storms and VHS recorders have unearthed footage Warren Spector’s next game, Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two and brought it into our… sorry? It’s Wii footage? Oh, that explains it. I’m usually not snobbish, and I’m sure Youtube’s compression doesn’t do the Wii any favours, but jagged edges and about four colours really don’t show the multiplatform platformer off in the best light. With that warning in mind, try and look past it and into the really lovely art design in the platform sections, and the lovely flat art in the third-person sections. I did make an ‘aww’ when Mickey and whatever the hell the other thing is teamed-up with Mickey as a helicopter. I’m a sap for cute co-op.
There’s none of the singing that Spector’s promised is part of the game, but 7m and 19 seconds in Mickey travels to Fantasia. Even I’m not cynical enough to not enjoy seeing the mop carrying the buckets, but it’s probably the only classic Disney moment I can stand now.
Want it? It’s not Autumn yet, so you cannot have.
