The lights are on
Disney revealed its new game Disney Infinity yesterday, which the company says is a key component of a larger multiyear gaming strategy. If reported sales figures of Epic Mickey 2 are accurate, that kind of change is something that Disney desperately needs.
The Los Angeles Times revealed the information in a story focused on Disney's larger games business. The writer cites an unnamed source with access to NPD data that says Junction Point's Epic Mickey 2 sold 270,000 copies in 2012 since its mid-November launch. To put that figure in perspective, the Wii-exclusive Epic Mickey sold 1.3 million copies in the same time frame back in 2010.
Were people burnt out on Mickey Mouse two years later, or did they do a little research before spending their cash?

Wow now that bombed.
Ouch. I didn't think EM 1 even needed a sequel.
i only played a little bit of the first game.. maybe ppl who had issues with the 1st game decided not to risk there money a 2nd time idk .. honestly it was never too appealing of a game in the first place imo. either way there was a good number of games at the time and cash is limited
Wow, that is shockingly low.
Poor Mickey, your game had really low sales. Hopefully Infinity gives Disney there break.
I'd just like to point out that that header image is perfect.
the games just werent good.... weird cut scenes, bad gameplay/platforming, and atrocious mission direction. it was so hard, especially for a kid, to understand what to do next/where to go next.
This game came out?!
Wow, Disney failed on a sequal? That almost never happens. ;)
