Epic Mickey trailer is… epic

Epic Mickey: Not that bad after all. We’re going to level with you here for a moment. There was some mild speculation around these parts that Epic Mickey wasn’t going to be that great. The initial announcement and subsequent media left us wanting something more. Clearly, we spoke too soon.

Now we see what all hub-bub is about and this trailer further supports that. Ignoring the dark and eerie atmosphere, the idea alone of making the choice between being destructive and constructive through the paint/paint thinner mechanics, is exciting. The Wii is desperately in need of a quality IP outside of Nintendo’s own, and Epic Mickey looks to be filling that void.
