August 31, 2012 - Industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point are showcasing a never-before-seen area of “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” for Penny Arcade Expo attendees at the Disney Interactive booth North Hall #642 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle this weekend. Attendees will explore Fort Wasteland, an area of the video game based on the historic Frontierland that opened with Disneyland® Park in July 1955 and has delighted generations of visitors with forgotten attractions such as the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland and Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer Island.
Additionally, attendees that come by the Disney Interactive booth will have the opportunity to receive a sketch from a Disney Character Sketch Artist, giveaways and more.
The “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” video game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners - Mickey with the magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with a powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play further enhances the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players tackle challenges the way they want to in order to explore a variety of possibilities and storylines, but always with consequences for their chosen actions.
Development for “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” for the Wii™ system from Nintendo, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system is being led by Disney Interactive’s Junction Point. Supporting the latest technology, the game will also feature full support for the PlayStation®Move motion controller. “Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion” for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system is under development by critically-acclaimed developer DreamRift, in collaboration with Junction Point. The games are rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB.
