Epic Mickey

No it’s not a porn movie.  It’s a new game starring Mickey Mouse.

Mickey goes through a mirror into a workshop were a land for all things forgotten was created.  Curious, Mickey picks up the paint brush and starts painting.  He accidently makes a shadow monster, which he then erases (destroying the newly created land, turning it into a wasteland).  A long time passes, and Mickey is attacked by the shadow monster.  It takes him to the wasteland, were it plans to remove his heart.

It’s a platform game with RPG elements.  Fans of Kingdom Hearts will probably like this game, as they seem very similar.  Disney fans, even the non-gamers, are expected to eat this game up.  This is mainly because everything in the game, down to the last barrel, has been taken from another Disney creation.  Old theme park rides will also be featured, but the thing I find most exciting about it, keep in mind I’m a total ‘geek’, is that characters that were taken out of past Disney projects will appear in the wasteland.  However I am worried that too much time may have been put into the appearance and not enough was dedicated to the actual story.

This game marks the long awaited return of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.  Mickey Mouse was originally made as a replacement for Oswald, who was cancelled after the animators demanded more pay.  At the time Disney was just starting out, so after his staff betrayed him he once again started from scratch, but from then on he made sure he owned the rights to everything created in his company.  Oswald was then owned by Universal, but was bought back by Disney in 2006.  The day he made his return to Disney, Oswald merchandise became available in Disneyland.  Other than said merchandise the character has not appeared in a Disney production, since his return, but reps from Disney said he would be returning with a bang.

The weapon, in the game, is a magic paintbrush that gives players the ability to draw and erase objects.  The game was released on the 25th of November, exclusively for Wii.  If you haven’t got it yet I suggest putting it on your Christmas list, as it might just be a vital part of the Disney Universe.

    • Yeah before this game I hadn’t heard of Oswald either, but I think his story his interesting and it’s about time he took his rightful place as the king of Disney, as he is the oldest Disney character.
      Team Oswald

    I’ve heard great things about this game for quite some time now.

    I’m still undecided on whether to buy it or not though. Are you going to get it?

    My next Wii game will be the new Donkey Kong game, came out just the other day. It looks so good.

    • I will probably get this game eventually I’m not a big fan of paying big money for wii games. They’re usually overly simple (i mean quality not gameplay) and don’t seem worth the money. You better write about the Donkey Kong game.
