Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two trailer showcases forgotten characters

I'm super excited for Epic Mickey 2. It's pretty much everything I could have wanted in the original and more. From finally being multiplatform, to adding the ability to play co-op, not to mention it's a musical! 

In this latest trailer, we get a glimpse at some of the characters in the game, including Oswald and what makes playing as him a completely unique experience. Mickey is armed with the magic brush allowing to paint or use paint thinner, while Oswald has a remote control which allows him to power certain things in the world.

The development team wanted to stay true to the source material and include some iconic characters in the game. Ortensia the Cat will be making a much larger appearance in Epic Mickey 2, rather than just being a mentioned character.

The Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two video game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions.  But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners - Mickey with the magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with a powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.   This new co-op play further enhances the idea that "PlayStyle Matters" - a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players tackle challenges the way they want to in order to explore a variety of possibilities and storylines, but always with consequences for their chosen actions.
