“Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald
the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years

with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald
with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.

“Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” is the first video game that
can be described as a “musical,” where at various points during the
adventure characters will express themselves and advance the plot by
bursting into song. All songs feature original Disney-inspired music
and lyrics. Players will also hear tunes and instrumentation that
change based on their personal choices, which will ultimately allow
each individual to “conduct” their own unique soundtrack.
