Spector 'Desperately' Wants To Port Epic Mickey 1

Junction Point Studios boss Warren Spector still desires to port the original Epic Mickey to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. During an interview at the Game Developers Conference earlier this month, we asked Spector if he considered porting the original game to other platforms at any point during its development.

“I will tell you I desperately want to do it, and other than that I have no comment at this time," he told Game Informer. “I just think it would be cool for people to see where the story started, so we’ll see."

The sequel, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, is now coming to Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

"We sold many millions of copies of [Epic Mickey] on just the Wii, and being on the Wii was great. It was a perfect way to reintroduce Mickey as a hero in video games," he added.

In 2010, Spector addressed the same question about HD ports of Epic Mickey to MTV saying it's a decision left up to Disney and that there's "nothing that would stop us from doing it."
