Junction Point Studios has released three Epic Mickey videos from E3, showing the spunky mouse battling pirates and walking around on a steamboat.

In the first video, Mickey is up against pirates on Skull Island, turning enemies into friends and finding beneficial items.

The second video has our hero running errands and solving puzzles for Smee, whom you will remember from Disney’s Peter Pan movie.

Finally, in the last video, Mickey meets up with Steamboat Willie on his ship, and helps a pirate woo Henrietta, who reminds us a lot of Clarabelle Cow.

Epic Mickey, with maps inspired by Warren Spector’s Deus Ex and Nintendo’s Zelda among others, is slated for fall on Wii and has a team of 275 folks working on it.

Spector will host a panel on the game during Comic Con on Saturday, July 24.

    @1 Do. They’re well worth it, and there’s plenty of other amazing games on the console to make the purchase worthwhile.

    @4
    Generic? Really? Do you know what word means? This is the least generic to come out on consoles for a good while. Sorry, but that has to be the stupidest comment I’ve read today. I mean no offense, but really.

    I can see why 4. thinks it looks a bit generic. Comes across slightly like that to me. It looks wonderful, the characters are beautifully animated and the feel of it looks spot on. The platforming, interacting with characters and gameplay look potentially very generic though. But, that’s very tricky to tell from the video.

    It reminds me of the 3D Marios, especially Sunshine, but with a heavier narrative. Which does it for me, so long as they can pull it off with a decent story and inventive levels and set-pieces.
