Epic Mickey?
Post By carnione. 06/04/10, 09:59 am

I am not sure if many other people have heard... but Epic Mickey is a platform game/RPG that is being released (I think this is the American release date D8) September 16th this year. It is an attempt from the wonderful people at Disney to reintroduce Mickey to audiences in a new light.

...Yes. It is also for Wii.

THE COVER LOOKS FREAKING AWESOME. It was on GameInformer and the ink is melting off of Mickey Mouse.

Spoiler:

Personally, part of me is quite excited as it looks wonderful and the cover art does an amazing job of evoking... many cool ideas. Epic Mickey? Icon_biggrin

Though I'm curious as to what the 'boundries' (not making sense) will be that Disney will allow, and how creepy the game will get. The cover reminds me of some of the creepier levels of Kingdom Hearts and it'd be pretty good if Epic Mickey is as dark as the more serious parts of KH. It also resembles Kingdom Hearts in the sense that it combines classic Disney characters with elements from Fantasia.

Closest thing to plot sypnosis I could find:

A long time ago, the sorcerer Yen Sid created a Disney theme park themed pen-and-paper world called the Cartoon Wasteland for his forgotten and rejected creations, held in an intricate model on a table, and accessible through a mirror. Mickey, who steps through a mirror from his home and finds himself inside Yen Sid's study, sees the model, and waits until Yen Sid is gone before going back to take another look at it. Fiddling with it, Mickey accidentally spills paint and paint thinner onto the model. Hearing Yen Sid approaching, Mickey quickly cleans up and flees back to his home. However, the spill of paint and paint thinner create a being called the Phantom Blot, who attempts to take control of the Wasteland from its first resident and Mickey's older half-brother - Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Oswald and the other residents of the Cartoon Wasteland fight against the Phantom Blot, but he eventually overwhelms them and twists their world into a dark and sinister version of itself, forcing Oswald into hiding.
Years later, Mickey has forgotten his past transgression; the mirror in his home comes to life and pulls him into the Cartoon Wasteland. Oswald, his will lost and twisted by his jealousy of Mickey's rise to fame, has formulated a plan to destroy Mickey. The Mad Doctor works closely with the Blot, creating robotic "Beetleworx", which are strange creatures that consist of combinations of various Disney cartoon characters. He also creates animatronic "buddies" for Oswald, looking like decrepit robotic versions of Mickey's friends, as Oswald wants Mickey's life and popularity for himself. Armed with a magical paintbrush that he managed to pull into the world with him, Mickey must stop the Phantom Blot, gain Oswald's trust and save the Cartoon Wasteland.

Some people could disagree, everybody is scared of different things and while one person may think " Oh it's only a video game'' one person might think " There is heartless appearing everywhere, this is scary "! that's why gave a warning with the youtube clips up above, most people here may not get scared though somebody could..

( People being scared of KH is down in the middle )

KH has a alot of *cheese* *believe in your heart * in it, but some moments like Xion's transformation or Sora's stabbing might get somebody..

Lol. Already a thread, but I guess since noones posted in it in a while my point is irrelevant.

That's why I said "personally". Meaning I think it not speaking for majority but for myself.

EDIT: Should the threads be merged?
