Spector: “I want to make [Mickey] a videogame hero on a par with the very best”
Anticipation is particularly rife for Mickey Mouse’s upcoming videogame outing, Disney’s Epic Mickey, yet veteran game developer Warren Spector is setting his sights particularly high for the iconic character’s gaming return – with hopes that Mickey will be on par with seasoned heavyweights Mario and Sonic.
“Mickey Mouse has achieved the highest level of fame, fortune and success in every field he’s except video games, Spector stated during a Character Overview regarding the title. “I want to make him a videogame hero on a par with the very best – the Marios and the Sonics. I hope Epic Mickey gets him there.”
Disney’s Epic Mickey is due to release exclusively for Wii on November 25th across Europe, and November 30th within North America.
