Nintendodpad’s posted the first Game Informer scan of Epic Mickey. It looks mental.
There’s only one page there, but you get a good idea of what’s going on. Looks a lot more colourful than we expected.
Check it out.

After the break. It’s a guy drawing Mickey facing off against an enemy, speeded up over three minutes.
There’s no date on the Wii exclusive as yet, but there’s a press conference for the game in London later this month, so we should get more then.

Game Informer’s gone on the record to confirm Epic Mickey as a Wii exclusive.
Confusion arose after the mag said the game was only coming to Wii in an online teaser for its next cover, then altered its article to remove the claim.
Apparently, the team was trying to save the info for the mag’s release. Unlucky.
The issue’s out next week.

The original claim of Wii exclusivity for the Junction Point project raised more than a few eyebrows, especially given the incoming spring release of Sony’s PS3 motion tech and the game’s “artwork” nature.
There’s the dream: cling on to it. A press event’s being held for the game in London on October 28, so we should know more then.

Superannuation‘s found a dev CV claiming Junction Point’s working on something called Epic Mickey for Wii.
The guy involved reckons he’s a concept artist on the game, work which included “designing and painting concept/inspirational artwork” and “painting ‘boxouts’ for locations”.
Junction Point is Warren Spector’s Disney-owned company, in case you’d forgotten.
There’s more on Eurogamer.

Gamasutra’s rumouring that Warren Spector’s Junction Point Studios is working on a Mickey Mouse title called Epic Mickey.
The site says it’s seen concept art showing “mockups of the potential game’s environment, including pencil sketches of cities assembled from junk.
“Another sketch included a surreal seashore invasion scene, in which machines wearing the faces of the Seven Dwarfs deposit old-fashioned renditions of Disney characters onto the beach with mechanical hands.”
Disney bought Junction Point back in June 2007.

“No,” said the dev legend when asked the nature of the game. “That’s the one thing that’s off limits. We’re always working on a bunch of stuff. There is certainly a project that’s occupying a bulk of our time but there are other things going on as well.”
Spector’s studio was recently acquired by Disney. The outfit’s known to be working on a game in collaboration with John Woo, based on new movie IP Ninja Gold.
