An Introduction to Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
If you enjoyed the massively popular game, Epic Mickey, then you are probably anticipating the sequel the is being released later this year. Disney’s Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two has released a new behind the scenes introduction video to get you ready for the upcoming release.
Through the introduction, some of the key people from the creation and development of the game talk about the release and allow you to have a deeper understanding into the core gameplay features, mechanics, and storyline.
The newest installation into the Epic Mickey budding franchise is set some time after the original Epic Mickey. The Mad Doctor, whom Mickey defeated in the first game, mysteriously returns to the Wasteland, despite having been supposedly blown up in the first game. He claims to have realised the error of his ways, and offers to work with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit and the other residents of Wasteland to repair the damage recently caused by earthquakes in order to make amends.
Giving him the benefit of the doubt, Oswald agrees. However, not long after accepting the Mad Doctor’s help, the Wasteland begins to suffer even more damage than before. Becoming suspicious that the Mad Doctor is not keeping his side of the bargain, Gus the Gremlin, Oswald’s friend and advisor, and Ortensia, Oswald’s girlfriend, decide to contact Mickey Mouse, who saved the Wasteland in the first game, to ask for his help. They do so, and Mickey, climbing through the same mirror that he ventured through in the first game, retrieves his magical paint-and-thinner-spraying paintbrush from Yen Sid’s workshop, after having it confiscated at the end of Epic Mickey. With Gus’s help, Mickey returns to the Wasteland to assist in uncovering the truth behind the Mad Doctor’s supposed reformation, teaming up with Oswald along the way.
The two later discover that the Mad Doctor has been using his offer of help as a premise to release his new creations “Blotworx” (a mixture of the Blotlings and Beetleworx from the original Epic Mickey) into the Wasteland. Realising his mistake, Oswald proceeds to assist Mickey in taking down the Mad Doctor once again.
