We've known for a while now that Disney's Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two would be coming to the PlayStation Vita, but we hadn't known when exactly -- until now. SCEA's Don Mesa confirmed today that Epic Mickey 2 will be released for the Vita on June 18, complete with a number of new features.

"On the backend, we’ve added things like ad hoc network functionality, but we’ve also implemented new ways to control the game," explained Mesa. "You’ll be able to control paint, thinner and Oswald’s electric beam using the touch screen, as well as use orientation-based controls for both the camera and while driving."

Despite the hype leading up to the release of Epic Mickey 2, the game actually fell flat upon release. Mediocre reviews and a lukewarm reception led to lackluster sales which, ultimately, resulted in the closure of Junction Point.
