It looks like Epic Mickey will appear on more than just the Wii. Don’t get too excited here — we’re talking books. NeoGAF (via Kotaku) recently discovered two different Amazon listings for books that seemingly tie into the upcoming game’s narrative. The first of which appears to be a kid’s book dubbed “Epic Mickey — It’s Your Call.” The other is titled “Epic Mickey Junior Novel.” Both are being published by Disney Press.
The latter is the more interesting of the two as it (1) again seemingly, might just be a novelization of the game’s events and (2) will probably have bigger words than “It’s Your Call,” meaning we’ll look more sofisticated to hot chicks while carrying it around. Check below the fold for Amazon’s description of both, by the way.
Become Mickey Mouse as he travels through the Cartoon Wasteland full of rejected and forgotten creations. Battle fierce robots called “Beetleworx”, anamotronic blotlings, and Mickey’s older half brother, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit! Armed with a magical paintbrush, Mickey must stop the Phantom Blot who will stop at nothing to rule the Cartoon Wasteland, earn back his half-brother’s trust, and save the Cartoon Wasteland from total devastation! Are you up for the job?
When Mickey Mouse accidentally spills paint and paint thinner on a rendering of a model word called the Cartoon Wasteland, mayhem ensues! Unbeknownst to Mickey, the spill creates an evil monster called the Phantom Blot who will stop at nothing to take control of the Wasteland, and everything in it, including Mickey’s older half brother, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit! Unable to stop the Phantom Blot, Oswald goes into hiding and the Cartoon Wasteland is transformed into a hideous and twisted world.
Many years passed and Mickey went on with his life, until one day he gets sucked through a mirror — and winds up in the Cartoon Wasteland! Armed with just a magical paintbrush that he took with him, Mickey must stop a Mad Doctor who works closely with the Phantom Blot, earn back his half-brother’s trust, and save the Cartoon Wasteland.
