Epic Mickey 2, as many of you already know, will be releasing on the Xbox 360 and PS3. That wasn’t the case for the original Epic Mickey, which was exclusive to the Nintendo Wii. Now that we know Epic Mickey 2 is coming to HD consoles, fans are wondering if developer Junction Point will bring the original to Xbox 360 and PS3. Apparently studio boss Warren Spector wants it to happen, but he needs your help.
Speaking to Joystiq during Gamescom, Spector said that he’s been trying to get Disney to go along with a port. “It’s been about four or five days since I’ve asked to get that project greenlit. It’s not my call to make. I can’t even tell you how much I want to see the first game with all the enhancements and improvements we’ve made on Xbox 360 and PS3,” he said, going on to suggest that those who would like to see such a port email Disney and show their interest.
Indeed, many fans felt shafted when it was revealed that Epic Mickey would be a Wii exclusive. Mickey Mouse has starred in some excellent games in the past, and Epic Mickey was something a lot of people were getting excited about. It’s encouraging to see Spector trying to get the greenlight from Disney, but despite the fact that he’s the legendary Warren Spector, he can only do so much by himself.
So, how about it? Would you like to see Epic Mickey come to HD consoles? If you do, there are plenty of ways to get in touch with Disney to show your support for such a project, but with Epic Mickey 2 currently soaking up the limelight, it’s going to take a lot of convincing to get Disney to go along with such an idea. Here’s hoping that Disney can be swayed, because Spector isn’t the only one who’d like to see Epic Mickey come to Xbox 360 and PS3.
