This past Wednesday Disney announced that a sequel to its hit video game Epic Mickey was in production. The new game, again under the direction of gaming master Warren Spector, is titled Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two and co-stars Oswald the Rabbit along with the Mick. Two players will now be able to control each charter as they once again wander through a bizarro Disneyland. According to the press releases, Spector is correcting some of the shortcomings of the original Epic Mickey game from 2010 by having the characters actually speak (in the original game all Mickey could do was give us his high pitched grunt) and provide a better camera view so people like me who aren't in any way professional gamers constantly having Mickey jump into oblivion. The new game is also being made for all major gaming systems: Nintendo Wii, XBOX 360, and Playstation 3. The original Epic Mickey was only available for the Wii system.
To promote the game, Disney pulled out of its archive a 1928 drawing of Oswald the Rabbit that supposedly hasn't been seen in 40 years.
