In an interview with Red Bull, Warren Spector of Disney Interactive Studios suggested he would like to see the Epic Mickey series continue, but not just talking about Mickey.
His comments suggested he wants to see the universe expanded even further.
“I’d love to see the Disney Epic Mickey series continue – there are plenty of stories still to tell about Wasteland and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse! I’d love to see some Oswald games, where he’s on his own. He deserves a shot at solo stardom. Then there are the ‘duck’ games – Donald, Scrooge, etc – that are just waiting to be made. And a bunch of us at Junction Point have thoughts about Goofy and the Gremlins and a hundred others.”
The interview didn’t end there, with the talks shifting towards Epic Mickey 2’s soundtrack, and how Spector would love to see improvements.
We go a step further, changing the actual orchestration based on how you choose to deal with game challenges.
They’re not interactive – in THIS game – but using songs as storytelling tools seemed necessary for a game that claims to honor Disney’s creative history.
Its all speculation at this point, but so far the Epic Mickey series has proven to be a very colorful adventure game on the Wii consoles, and this writer believes it deserve the Wii U treatment somewhere down the line.
