Emily reported it last week as a rumor and today we can confirm it: Epic Mickey 2 is a real thing. The official Disney newsletter went out today, citing a release on the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. And it’s scheduled for a Christmas 2012 release.
As we told you before, the game will feature two-player co-op with one player controlling Mickey and the other behind Oswald the Lucky Rabbit as they venture through lands filled with forgotten Disney characters once again. Also, as Emily reported, the game will feature different endings based on the actions you take while you play.
One interesting note is that the Disney newsletter doesn’t mention a Wii U release for Epic Mickey 2. Maybe the announcement will come when Nintendo “re-announces” the system at E3 this year.
