Looking at the concept art (see a little more at Blast Magazine, it seems pretty obvious that Epic Mickey is going to show us a side of the mouse we’ve never seen before. With a dark deconstructionist feel permeating both the imagery and the words that we’ve seen and heard about the upcoming game, it should be very interesting to watch how it all plays out. Previously said to be Wii exclusive (it might still be), it promises to be an experience unlike any other. And if you’re a fan of Nintendo’s latest console, you might find, as I have, that they still haven’t used the Wiimote to its full potential. According to reports, Epic Mickey will try to change all that.
Personally, I can’t wait.
Of course, this wasn’t Mickey’s first foray into the video game world. Far from it! In fact, I still remember loving Mickey and Minnie’s Circus Adventure when it first came out years ago. But most recently, he was part of the unlikely combination of Disney and Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts. And I am pleased to say that we’ve got KH merch available over at CmdStore so if you’re a fan of the game or just a few of Disney’s greats, check ’em out!
