The lights are on
The sequel to Epic Mickey sold poorly and was slammed by critics. After the release of Epic Mickey 2, developer Junction Point Studios was even shuttered. That hasn't stopped Sony from going forward with its plans to bring the iconic mouse to the PlayStation Vita.
On the PlayStation Blog, Sony revealed the release date for Epic Mickey 2 to be June 18. The major change from the PS3 version is touch-screen controls, which are used to handle camera rotation as well as Mickey and Oswald's main weapons. Other than that (and the addition of ad-hoc network functionality), Epic Mickey 2 on Vita looks to be largely the same experience as its console counterparts – for better or worse.
