Junction Point Desperately Wants To Do An Epic Mickey HD Port

Epic Mickey was originally developed exclusively for Wii, but it sounds as though the developer Junction Point seriously want to get the game on other platforms. Warren Spector has told Game Informer that it’s a project he desperately wants done, but he wouldn’t say any more on the subject. Epic Mickey: The Power of Two is coming to Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime later this year, and there’s also a Nintendo 3DS game in the works.

“I will tell you I desperately want to do it, and other than that I have no comment at this time.”

“I just think it would be cool for people to see where the story started, so we’ll see. We sold many millions of copies of [Epic Mickey] on just the Wii, and being on the Wii was great. It was a perfect way to reintroduce Mickey as a hero in video games.”

  1. Epic Mickey 1 was a winner on the Wii. Let’s hope Warren Spector’s developent team at Junction Point push the envelope for a sequel.

      1. They do so because it’s awesome to replay old games with new clarity and fluidity. I bet you anything that if Nintendo re-releases Game Cube games in HD for Wii U, you Nintendo “sheep” will flock to them without a negative word spoken.

        I’d certainly buy them, but then again I’m not the one bashing HD remakes for no reason at all.

      2. I’m talking about remakes with HD as the only big change. Nintendo would do WAY more than just beef up the graphics, just look at Ocarina of Time 3D.

      1. 1. It is absolutely fine if someone doesn’thave a 3DS yet. Doesn’t mean they are not a Nintendo fan.
        2. How do you even know if he has one or not? A bit stalkerish I think…
        3. Even though I you not like the Xbox, that still gives you no right to say it is shit, as well as some of its best games. I don’t even like it, but I would never call it shit.
        4. Trolling trolls only creates massive flame wars which are very annoying for everyone else. Please do not do it,for the sake of keeping your dignity and allowing everyone else to enjoy this wonderful site.

  3. I had actually hoped they’d do it. The camera on the Wii game is pretty terrible, but it’s still a lot of fun. If they fix the camera, then it’d be even better. Though, keep in mind, it’s not really an HD remake, but a port. The Wii’s graphics aren’t terrible to begin with, not the best, but porting it in HD would probably be a fairly quick process compared to remaking PS2 games in HD. It’d also give those who don’t have a Wii the chance to play the original (which likely would sell more copies of the new game on other systems. I’d buy it again for PS3 if they do it.

  4. Allows more peope to play the game. I see no problem with this.

    I agree the HD remakes are everywhere to an extent. The problem is that they’re so overpriced. DMC set for example. £30 for the HD set or £5 for the trio on the PS2. HMMMM. And the ones that shoot themselves. No reason for me to pay £35 on MGS3DS when I can get 2, 3 and Portable Ops for £35 on the main consoles.
