Epic Mickey collecting on Wii

Limited edition of Junction Point's genre-crossing adventure to include 5" figurine, console and controller skins, "Making of" DVD for $70.

by

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.

Mickey is ready and willing to apply a coat of paint to the Wii.

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.

A nice package design to be sure. Plus, it's Warren Spector.

Even though I don't look at a Wii title unless it has Mario in it I will admit I am paying close attention to this one... Could be Epic XD P.S. those skins look sexy

Geez I haven't played a Mickey Mouse game since SEGA Genesis, it was really good. This will be Epic.

Funniest (read ironic) statement of the day: "And though the Wii itself doesn't feature DVD playback capabilities, gamers will be afforded a behind-the-scenes bonus video on the format." Oh how I laughed.

Also, I wish that Nintendo released demo's for their games, so we could have some idea as to whether this game would be good.

I love the sound of this collectors edition. If only I had heard anything positive about the gameplay of this game. Hopefully they improve it. I'll probably preorder and cancel if they haven't.

Epic Mickey is a nostalgic type of game making a comeback as a lead character since the original NES and is rightfully fitting to be exclusive to the Wii and I can not wait to get my hands on the collectors edition. If your not wanting to play this game as a gamer I say Epic Fail

$70 for a Wii game - extras or not? I wouldn't pay $70 for it within Disney theme parks.... not that I dislike Mickey games, quite the opposite - Castle of Illusion is still one of my favourite games of all time - I just think $70 for any Wii title is stretching it rather a lot.

I don't actually want the game, but if I did the collectors edition would be a great valvue. Props to disney studios for having one non cash-cow game! Bang = Buck = Epic Mickey. - Justin

This game looks like it has all the reasons Super Mario Sunshine failed. At least the HUD doesn't have a transparent depiction of the Wii Remote like most Wii games do.

I'm really iffy about this game, I'll wait for some reviews before I think about buying it or not, but that seems like a decent price for what you get.

@Gargaglio5tatus I would LOVE to put Mickey Mouse splooge all over my Wiimote. This Collector's Edition looks awesome for a game that looks even more awesome. And you know what? I'm gonna get this. Because I want to put Mickey Mouse splooge all over my Wiimote. And my Wii, don't forget it comes with a cover for your Wii.

The figurine is the only thing that looks interesting, unless you want to bedazzle your Wii (that sounded so wrong... Why did Nintendo pick that name?)

LOL ok, this game might be very good and all; but for god's sake, ITS MICKEY MOUSE!!! He is not cool, he epitomizes non-coolness, and they try so hard to make him look bad-a**. Who would want mickey mouses splooge all over their Wiimote?!

@ Darth_Nater307 I think you should get Metroid Other M.

If nothing else, I really want the skins for my Wii and one of the remotes. If the game gets good reviews, I'll probably go for it.

Mickey is not really that epic....They should have used He Man instead yea?

I already have Resident Evil skins, but the figure is cool. If only they were putting this out on all the systems at least then I might be interested. Especially now with PS Move so the Wiis motion controls can't be the reason to keep it there anymore.

i love the creative twist they are giving Mickey :) these type of things should happen more often...the creator says he wants to make a Duck Tales game, if its anything the way this game is shaping up to be I say go for it!
