Warren Spector has a way with words, and if you let him personally talk your ear off for an hour about Epic Mickey, you would probably be as excited for the game as I am. The highly imaginative platformer is shaping up very well from what I saw at PAX, and we now know exactly when you’re going to be able to get your hands on it.
Disney Interactive has confirmed that Epic Mickey will launch in North America on November 30th. In a abnormal move, the game will launch in Great Britain on November 26th while the rest of Europe will be able to buy it on November 25th. I would be bitter about this, but us yanks seemingly always get games before Europe, so I’ll let this one slide.
That leaves Spector’s 280 person team with around two months for some fine tuning, and from what I played, hopefully the framerate can be ironed out, and the Wiimote pointing could use a little tightening. Other than that, Epic Mickey should be ready for prime time when it hits store shelves this fall.
