E3: Disney Interactive: Epic Mickey

OK, I know I put a cancellation notice on the word EPIC after an entire day of marketing people tossing the word around like it was the new hot buzz word for nerds with cash to spend, but for Mickey, I'll make an exception. Even though the mouse is largely a part of our childhood, he still holds a firm hold of our heart strings, so creating a video game empire around him is a no brainer and honestly, its baffling no one has done it before!! Now your favorite animated mouse is coming to the Wii and the gameplay seems every bit as fantastical as you'd think it should be.

Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s forgotten creative efforts, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.

Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.


  • Use paint and paint thinner to change the world, interact with friends and enemies and solve challenges
  • Choose the best path to become an epic hero because “Playstyle Matters” and choices will change the outcome of the game
  • Explore and solve challenges in an alternate Disney world ruled by Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star
  • Travel between lands in Wasteland through classic platforming levels inspired by animated films and shorts
  • Experience an innovative mix of platforming, action-adventure and light role playing game elements
  • Collect over 75 virtual Disney pins in the game by completing specific challenges, quests and discovering hidden collectibles
