Disney Interactive Studios has announced that the upcoming video game Disney Epic Mickey will also be released as a Collectors’ Edition in limited quantities.
Available for pre-order beginning today (August 30) in North America and alongside the standard edition at retail this holiday, the Collectors’ Edition will include the full version of the game, a five inch collectible Disney Epic Mickey figurine, Wii console skins and remote faceplate, and a bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes video and more.
With its innovative style of gameplay using paint and thinner to dynamically change the game world, the company believes that Disney Epic Mickey is one of the most anticipated titles of 2010.
Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery.
As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s long forgotten characters and attractions, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.
Through the use of paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – a style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines.
Disney Epic Mickey will be available this holiday season exclusively for Wii. The Disney Epic Mickey Collectors’ Edition will retail at $69.99 and the standard edition will retail at $49.99.
Junction Point is Disney Interactive Studios’ Austin, Texas-based developer of console games.
Disney Interactive Studios, part of Disney Interactive Media Group, is the interactive entertainment affiliate of The Walt Disney Company.
