Spoiler Alert: “Epic” November Issue Revealed

The rumors have been flying for months. From the outrageous (some actually thought we were bought by Disney, which was quite funny), to the right on (our forums pieced together all the clues from the last issue), the time has come to lay all rumors to rest. The November cover is indeed, Disney Epic Mickey, coming exclusively to the Nintendo Wii from Junction Point and Disney Interactive Studios.

This issue is the first of our highly anticipated redesign that subscribers should be receiving around October 12th.

There are a number of other highlights, including a Skate 3 first-look, an in-depth, seven-page report on the relationship between Hollywood and video games, interviews with executives from all three console manufacturers, and much, much more.

But the biggest news is our expanded coverage online that is available to all gameinformer.com visitors. Starting at 4PM CST today we will unveil the first companion piece to the magazine: an exclusive video interview with Warren Spector about his relationship with Mickey Mouse, including a portion of his giant Disney memorabilia collection that is housed at Junction Point. We will also have a photo-blog chronicling many of the outstanding pieces in his collection hitting at the same time.

This is just the beginning of our month of Mickey madness that will unfold over the next three plus weeks. So be sure to watch our Disney Epic Mickey landing page over the following month.

We don’t want to spoil what’s to come, but we have some amazing things in store, including screenshots, animations, and tons of concept art and music.

Watch for the issue in your mailbox over the coming weeks and make sure to come to gameinformer.com for the latest updates and news.

Oh yeah, and one last thing. All GI covers from here on out will feature a full wrap-around cover. Here is the Mickey cover in all its glory. The best part, and the reason we switched to these, is that the subscriber address label and the UPC will be on the back so it no longer clashes with our wonderful cover art.
I am curious about this game. Still waiting for some pics

I hope this game is as good as it looks.

Giving the Disney world such a dark twist sure is an unexpected move, but then again, originally fairy tales were not all that lighthearted and "happily ever after".

I remember reading about this game some time ago, glad to see that it is finally announced

@Narona, you can find the concept art on the NeoGaf forums here and here. Also there is this article on EruoGamer on the early news about it, plus some interesting back story about it.

I've seen some before, and the artworks are disturbing as ever That's why that game makes me curious.

I also heard that Warren Spector is quite a celebrity among gamers, so let's hope for something good.

Gameinformer will publish lots of infos about the game in october, starting with that video interview of Warren Spector: http://gameinformer.com/games/disney...dia/11550.aspx

New details about the game, from Eurogamer

Quote:
First Epic Mickey details spilled

News Wii News by Robert Purchese Today 14:24

A source close to Disney has let slip the first details of Warren Spector's new Wii game, Epic Mickey, to Eurogamer.

The choice of platform, incidentally, boils down to Mickey's tools - paintbrushes, erasers, thinner, pencils and other artist tools - being mapped to Wii remote gestures.

But let's rewind a bit.

Epic Mickey is a tale about the 'forgotten' Disney stars: the rides, the characters, the lesser-known cartoons. When nobody any longer cares, they are cast into a dark void; a forgotten world of broken machines and bitter personalities - a bit like Sid's bedroom in Toy Story, but without the friendly furnishings.

This forgotten world is run by Oswald the Rabbit. He was Disney's first creation, made long before Mickey Mouse, and his jealousy of the newcomer has fermented for years. Now, finally, Oswald is ready for revenge.

He unleashes The Phantom Blot to wipe out Mickey and his cartoon world. The Blot pollutes the Disney universe with sticky black ink that makes colours run and fade (as seen on the Game Informer cover), so it's up to Mickey to restore peace and order. And this is where his tools come in.

Mickey has to draw and scribble his way through levels, mending broken bridges by applying the right colour paint or peering through walls after applying thinner. He can even clear rubble from his path by erasing parts of the world.


Our source told us Epic Mickey is a game about thinking and artwork - laterally considering your environment in order to overcome puzzles.

On top of that is a healthy dose of exploration, plus Mickey will be getting "his first makeover in years". "That's why no one's seen his face yet," our source explained, "But he's far more retro than you've seen him for years."
Sounds so awesome.

There's a clue:

So I guess it'll be close to this



Or this



In the last one, the arms and legs seem to fit the design of Mickey on that GI's artwork.

Gameplay makes me think of the Wii version of Okami, which was a VERY good game as well.

Liking the sound of this more and more.~

The cover that they recently released was awesome. When I looked closely, I just noticed that Mickey is staring at Goofy. If there's no part in the game where you need to find a hidden Mickey, then they finally created a game intended for mature gamers and not some teeny-boper kind of games even if it involves Mickey.

What is really interesting here is that the music from the video will be one of the theme of the game

Eh, not as dark and gloomy as I had once hoped.



Still, I guess it's still worth a playthrough. The idea of branching storylines seems to be popular these days....

Oh man the merger between Marvel and Disney has caused Mickey to go XTREME! It's finally happening for real now. Never mind Kingdom Hearts anymore, that's got nothing on EPIC MICKEY!!!!!!! TO THE MAX!!!!!



This game deserves a review by Johnny Xtreme.

It looks kind of like Psychonauts.

And you guys honestly think Disney would actually do something grimdark? HAH.

This is the darkest Disney is going to get, and it actually looks pretty damn cool.

Now if they'd just change the damned title...

But Epic Mickey is not the title(as long as i know) it's just the codename of the project, just like Revolution was for the Wii.
