Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two announced

Disney icon Mickey Mouse will be returning to consoles in a sequel to the ambitious fantasy adventure Epic Mickey.

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is being developed by Junction Point for Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and will see Mickey return to the Wasteland, a strange world filled with fairground attractions and forgotten faces from Disney's history.

Renowned game designer Warren Spector revealed to the Associated Press that the sequel will be a two-player co-op experience co-starring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, one of the very first characters created by Walt Disney back in 1928.

Not only will The Power of Two feature full voice-acting - giving Oswald a voice for the first time ever - it will also be a musical in the classic Disney tradition, with composers Jim Dooley and Mike Himelstein currently penning a number of songs.

Mr Spector said: "I'm such a geek about musicals. I love the co-op and next-gen stuff, but for me, when a character breaks into song, which they do on a regular basis in this game, it's magic."

The original Epic Mickey was a Wii-only release back in 2010 and saw the cartoon legend changing the world around him with a magic brush and paint thinner.
