Excellent, hope it's better than 1.

Game designers aren't supposed to be happy, what am I looking at?

Posted by Sackmanjones

Boy, nothing lifts my spirit more than reading the first few comments of a video. It's truly something special and I love it

I really wish at least SOME of this looked like the original concept art did. : (

I think in 2012 we can stop calling the PS3 and 360 next gen consoles.

Edited by BonOrbitz

Hmmmm... Might be worth checking out on PS3 because of the Move controls and HD graphics.

@freakin9: I know, huh? Wait 'til Epic Mickey 2 bombs and Junction Point Studios gets disbanded.

Moving off of the Wii does not qualify as "Next Gen." Considering the timing, that's some pretty misleading language.

Indeed, when we're talking about their successors' reveals I think they can safely be called current gen.

They need to stop referring to the Xbox 360 and PS3 as the "next-gen consoles".

The funny thing is that its not even anounced as coming for the Wii U, making it seem that much weirder.

This seems like the game everyone hoped Epic Mickey 1 would be.

I cautiously wait for this game.

It doesn't look as shitty as the first one but still doesn't come close to looking like the concept art.

Posted by Cyrisaurus

Remember when everyone was excited about the first one and thought it would be good?

yeah.

Posted by Jolt92

Okay so it's the first one except you can hover.

Shame JP is working their workers nearly to death to churn this out. The things i've heard..man, it's a sweatshop.

I don't think they're ever going to mess around with that dark steampunk stuff at all, or 'evil' Mickey or anything like that. Once they revealed what the game was actually going to be, it became infinitely less interesting, and I don't think that this one is going to be very good either.

Posted by poheroe

agreed.

Posted by triviaman09

I liked the first one for about the first two or three hours, then it got pretty dull and the control and design flaws became apparent. I still really like the idea, though. Hopefully the second time is the charm.

Lol next gen....

Hey did you know Famous came up with Epic Mickey like 7 years ago? That's why he's famous. Little known fact!

Yeah, that shit has to stop. It's such a brain washed thing to sprout. As soon as a console is actually released, people should probably accept them as current gen consoles - currently available and currently the primary focus of the platform owners.

@Autechresaint: do tell..

Posted by ChosenOne

I was hoping they would look to make the graphics better realize the initial concept art, but that does not seem to be the case.

Posted by habibyjohnson

I guess some people hated the 1st one, but thats probably cos it was not at all a game for them. For me, it reminded me strongly of N64 platformers that I grew up with so I liked it alot.

Nice, were almost on to the next cycle of consoles and they're still referring to the 360 and PS3 as "Next Gen".

Sometimes I think the worst thing for games marketing are game developers and publishers being allowed to speak.

Posted by Bishna

So we are still calling current consoles "next gen" huh?

It was partly because the main reason people were excited about it was the post-apocalyptic concept art...and then they completely switched the art style and story.

I love N64 platformers and find Epic Mickey boring and semi-broken. In fact, my favorite game from this generation is Super Mario Galaxy. It's an incredible work of art. Epic Mickey is a mess.

What a hot scoop!
Posted by Butano

So they decided to turn Oswald into Tails I see. Also, that guy in the beanie kinda sounded like Timothy Olyphant

But in all seriousness, I liked the first one, despite the camera. Looking forward to the sequel. Spector needs to convince the higher ups at Disney to make that damn Ducktales game.

Posted by Korwin

Yo guy with the beanie, there's nothing "next-gen" about the Xbox/PS3 anymore.

Posted by InternetDetective

I think they hit every vague industry buzzword in this preview without telling us anything about the stupid game. Great job!

Posted by Nakiro

I'll only get this if they bring the first game to PS3 as well.

Posted by Tebbit

I guess the PS3 and X360 are "next gen" consoles for them, having only developed for the Wii before.

They're like cavemen, unfrozen in the year 1993. Allowing for all manner of hilarious fish-out-of-water scenarios.

Edited by edeo

What should be the term for Nintendo consoles? Negative Gen? Gen Minus One?

I fucking hate that it's called "Disney Epic Mickey". That sounds beyond retarded. There's probably some shifty corporate logic to it.

It looks pretty and all, but this definitely seems like a B-Tier platformer for children. Something a ten year old would love, but most of us would get bored of. It doesn't have that extra kick of something like Mario Galaxy.

No matter what us oldies want, Ducktales will never happen. Disney abandoned that world long ago. It lacks the "edginess" of something like Ben 10 or The Suite Life of Zack and Justin Bieber.

Posted by Tan

I hate to say it but they sound like they just came out of a time capsule.

Posted by MeatSim

Warren Spector all up in this.

Posted by mewarmo990

Well, that video was absolutely worthless.

I liked Epic Mickey, though.
