A word about Epic Mickey and Kingdom Hearts!

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!

New Kingdom Hearts Pre-Orders!

Shipping later this month, you can now pre-order the next wave of Kingdom Hearts toys from Square-Enix and Formation Arts. Unlike previous waves, this one doesn’t feature articulated figures, instead creating statues with bases that capture not only a particular character, but items and decor that bring to the pieces the mood of the game.

This series unites Sora, Minnie Mouse and fan favourite Jack Sparrow, who lounges atop a treasure chest. They look great on display and make a very cool addition to any player’s toy shelf. They can be purchased individually or as a set of three (for a savings of $5.90). Check ’em out!
