GameInformer has reported that Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will be making its way to Macs as well as to Windows PCs and consoles. The platformer sequel will give players the chance to play as Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in an all new adventure focusing on co-op play.

In Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is created by industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio,

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners—Mickey with his magical paintbrush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that “PlayStyle Matters”—a unique approach to gameplay, pioneered by Spector, where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.

Interesting. Hopefully it won't have the shortcommings of the first one. It had so much potential, and fell so flat..

IMO the biggest shortcoming had to do with the terrible controls. More specifically the way the camera worked. The Wii remote controlled a cursor like you have on your desktop and the d-pad on the wii remote slowly and imprecisely controlled the camera. Not having control over the camera didn't matter in Mario Galaxy as they had a real good auto camera when you move your character around but not so in Epic Mickey. However Epic Mickey 2 is also coming out for the other two gameboxes so it'll probably have better gamepad controls. What's up in the air is what kind of keyboard and mouse controls it'll have.

It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.

I used to watch Oswald the Rabbit cartoons on TV when I was a kid.  During that time TV showed all the old movie theatre cartoons.

Wow.  We had Super 8, and then it was only friend's movies on their projectors.  What we had was a Kodak Brownie camera, you couldn't ask for a squarer 3x3 black and white picture.  Color came out when I was in high school but it was pretty expensive.
