'Leaked' Newsletter Details Epic Mickey 2 Co-op Mode
Looks like a sequel to Warren Spector's cartoon mascot platformer Epic Mickey really is on the cards, if a supposedly leaked newsletter to Disney fans is anything to go by.

The bulletin informed readers of a release on Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the ability for two players co-operate through stages. Paint and Thinner abilities will reportedly be shared between players, according to MTV Multiplayer.

Last August, a survey polled recipients on various elements of a potential sequel to Epic Mickey, right down to the most interesting package design. Hopefully any sequel will be able to fully realise Spector's promise of an open-ended cartoon game - something the original fell short of doing. The full text from the newsletter can be found below.

"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 2-player split screen mode.

"In the 2 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!"
