Some of the tidbits include plot details, the tools that Mickey will use in his quest, and Mickey's first makeover in years.
Just as Game Informer officially confirmed Epic Mickey for Wii yesterday, Eurogamer has revealed the first details surrounding the title.
The story will be one of revenge. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney's first cartoon character, is jealous of Mickey's fame and success. He runs a world filled with forgotten and obscure Disney elements such as characters, stories, and theme park rides, featuring mechanical characters with bitter personalities. Oswald plots to take over Mickey's world by summoning the Phantom Blot (Mickey Mouse's arch nemesis from the Disney comics) and wiping out everything in sight, Mickey included, by using black ink to make the colors fade away.
Mickey will be using tools related to his animated roots, including paintbrushes, pencils, erasers, paint thinners, and many others. Players will be using these tools to restore the animated world, such as drawing bridges and painting them in the right color, and using the eraser to destroy obstacles.
Mickey will also receive an aesthetic makeover, a rare occurrence for such an iconic character.
