Disney Epic Mickey 2 Confirmed for PC and Mac
Warren Spector, one of the famed video game designers, has not had much to do with the PC since the days of Deus Ex and Thief, but that will soon change. Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two has been confirmed as launching on the PC and Mac, which means Warren Spector is finally back on the PC. Spector created the first Epic Mickey, but that version was only for consoles. Now, PC and Mac gamers can get in on the sequel, which so far has few specific details other than what has already been revealed for the console versions. In Epic Mickey 2, Mickey will meet up with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (a predecessor to Mickey the Mouse) and the two will journey through a bizzaro Disney theme park called the Wasteland. Epic Mickey 2 expands on the magical paintbrush from the first game by adding in musical numbers and co-op play, but it is unknown just how the control scheme will be adapted to the computer. The game is being billed by Disney as the "first videogame musical," with some characters breaking out into song to advance the plot.
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is slated to release later this year.
