Rumor: Epic Mickey 2 to Debut in 2012 with 2-player Co-op

You can't keep a good mouse down.

If Warren Spector’s Epic Mickey did one thing wrong, it was appearing exclusively on the Wii console. That made it essentially unavailable (or at least unappealing) to at least two-thirds of the videogame buying public. We at Co-Optimus might also suggest that it should have been a co-op game. Now don’t get too excited, but if a recent rumor/leak is to be believed, both of those issues will be rectified in the sequel, Epic Mickey 2. The game has yet to be officially announced, but it’s looking like a sure bet.

The source of the leak is a Disney newsletter that appeared on StitchKingdom.com. It was quickly pulled, but not before Game Informer snagged the game’s description. The biggest reveal is that Epic Mickey 2 will be coming to Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii this time around, greatly expanding its potential audience. It will even pack 2-player split-screen co-op, with the second player controlling Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a classic Disney character who Mickey encountered in the first game.

If the leak is accurate, Epic Mickey 2 will debut in Fall 2012, meaning it’s not too terribly far off. We’ll be watching closely for an official announcement.
