'Epic Mickey 2' Is Coming, Will Be Multiplatform

The PS3 and 360 will be getting in on Mickey's next video game adventure.

Well, we can move our earlier story from "rumor" to "news" after Eurogamer has snagged the official text from Disney announcing the follow-up to the Wii release for later this year:

Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this all-new action-platforming game available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, Mickey embarks on an epic journey and is pulled back into a world filled with Disney’s forgotten characters. Players can choose to play single-player as Mickey or for the first time players can also choose two-player split screen mode. In the two-player mode one person can play as Mickey wielding magic paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and the second player can play as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit – Walt Disney’s first cartoon star – with the power to fly like a helicopter and use electricity to fight or friend enemies and solve challenges. Team-up and choose your path to save this forgotten world because the choices you make will alter the story and change the end of the game!

As Warpzoned is wise to point out, the release omits the Wii U, meaning the game is either not planned for Nintendo's next console or it's simply getting a port/update down the line. Of course the other big point is the inclusion of co-op which will affect story and gameplay elements, making the upcoming title even more intriguing than before.
