Disney’s Epic Mickey series may see even 2 more iterations, according to comments from Junction Point founder Warren Spector with in an interview with MCV.
For every new iteration he plans to introduce some “innovation” to the series, the newest of which is two-player co-op that will be featured in the upcoming Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Spector said he always had in mind to introduce cooperative gameplay to the series even before he began initial production on the original Wii-exclusive Epic Mickey.
Spector also explained during the interview to speak of the critical reaction to the original Epic Mickey. He said once Junction Point shipped the title, it was no longer his or the publisher’s, but rather gamers’. Spector mentioned he could not accuse players for misunderstanding Epic Mickey because “the gamer is always right.”
“People got it just fine, but to be honest, nobody is going to say ‘No, I don’t want everybody to love my game,’ Spector said. ” Of course you want people to love your game, but if you can’t have that I would much rather polarize people and have people love it or hate it, than feel it was just alright.”
Spector has said that Junction Point received more fan mail for Epic Mickey than any other of his titles combined he has worked on in 29 years.
Expect a review from for Epic Mickey 2 and Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion when they release.
