Disney Interactive Studios has yet to attach a date to Junction Point's Epic Mickey, but that isn't preventing the publisher from adding some color to the game's release plans. Today, Disney announced the Collectors' Edition for Epic Mickey, which will launch alongside the Wii-exclusive title this holiday season. With the standard edition clocking in at $50, the Epic Mickey Collectors' Edition will carry a $70 price tag.
Beyond the game itself, the Epic Mickey Collectors' Edition will feature a 5-inch Epic Mickey figurine, portraying the heroic rodent poised to make use of the game's paint-brush mechanic. Gamers can also deck out their Wii console and controller with an Epic Mickey-themed skin and faceplate. And though the Wii itself doesn't feature DVD playback capabilities, gamers will be afforded a behind-the-scenes bonus video on the format.
Combining elements of the action adventure, role-playing, and platforming genres, Epic Mickey sees Disney's storied mouse braving the dreary bluffs of the Wasteland. The alternate dimension is populated by a variety of characters from Disney's stable, and Mickey must complete his family-friendly quest with the aid of his trusty paint brush. With the tool, players are able to alter the way the world looks, painting in some areas while thinning others.
