Posted 13 years ago by in News, Wii | 6 Comments

A bunch of new details for Epic Mickey have been revealed. A small amount of this information has been covered previously, but much of it is new.

– Mickey will be able to use paintbrushes, erasers, thinner, pencils
– Controlled through Wii remote motions
– Forgotten Disney characters are placed in a dark void which is a forgotten world containing nonfunctional machines, harsh characters
– Oswald the Rabbit running the dark world – Wants revenge (he was the first Disney character ever)
– Oswald the Rabbit creates The Phantom Blot – Attempt to destroy Mickey and his world
– The Blot invades the Disney universe with black ink – Colors run/fade – As seen on the Game Informer cover
– Mickey needs to essentially save the world
– Draw through levels – Fix bridges with correct paint color, peer through walls when the thinner is used, remove obstacles with eraser
– Game is focused on thinking/artwork
– Mickey getting “his first makeover in years,” he’s also “far more retro than you’ve seen him for years.”

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and MTV Games today revealed that LEGO® Rock Band™ will feature the likeness of David Bowie, pop music icon and best-selling music artist, as a LEGO minifigure. Fans can play as Bowie while singing his song “Let’s Dance,” which will be included in the play list.

LEGO Rock Band puts the power of Rock into the hands of tweens, teens, families and gamers of all ages as they go on a wild journey to rock stardom to “Build a Band and Rock the Universe.” Developed by TT Games in partnership with Harmonix, for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™ home videogame console. LEGO Rock Band for Nintendo DS™ is co-developed by TT Games and Harmonix in partnership with Backbone Entertainment, a Foundation 9 Entertainment studio. All versions are scheduled for release holiday 2009.

“The consumer response has been very strong to the price reduction. There are literally millions of consumers out there who want a Wii and had been on the sidelines. They’d been waiting for that little nudge to go out and pick it up – the price decline, the sampling, the launching of key software like Wii Fit Plus – we believe it’s what’s pushing them over the edge to get into the category.”

Naturally, Reggie wouldn’t share any sales figures, although he does indeed seem pleased. I’m actually a little more interested in how the Japanese market will respond the price cut since the console has been in quite a slump over the last few weeks. If I remember correctly, the DS Lite recently outsold the Wii according to Media Create data.


Square Enix seemed to be hinting that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers would not make it out this year in Europe. The company has already confirmed that the title will launch this December in North America. The Crystal Bearers will in fact be out next year in Europe, but it won’t be too long after the game releases elsewhere. European players will be able to purchase the title sometime in February 2010. There hasn’t been a specific release date announced, but I’m sure there will be as February approaches.
