Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is a platform video game published by Disney Interactive Studios, and is the sequel to Epic Mickey. The game was first released on the PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, and Xbox 360 in November 2012, and would make further releases on the PlayStation Vita, and Microsoft Windows over the next two years. The game features an optional co-op mode where a second player could play as Oswald and help Mickey save the magical world of Wasteland. The game also has a companion called Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the Nintendo 3DS.
Like its predecessor, Epic Mickey 2 takes place in a world based on classic and retired Disney characters and attractions. Likewise, the gameplay in Epic Mickey 2 closely resembles that of the original. One of the biggest updates is the addition of Oswald as a supporting character for Mickey; Oswald can either be controlled by the computer or a second player. Oswald uses a remote control in a way similar to how Mickey uses his paintbrush, to attack or befriend enemy characters and to alter the environment as needed to complete tasks. Oswald also has many other abilities, such as flying with his ears, taking off his leg, using his arms as boomerangs, etc. There are also some special abilities that can only be used when Mickey and Oswald are working together. In the PlayStation 3 version of the game, players are able to use motion controls using the PlayStation Move controller.
A sequel titled Epic Mickey 3 was originally intended to be the third and final part of the Epic Mickey trilogy. Due to the poor sales of Epic Mickey 2, Junction Point Studios closed on January 29, 2013, therefore canceling production on Epic Mickey 3. It was also one of the last games to be published by Disney Interactive Studios before it closed in May 2016.
