Epic Mickey Intro Cinematic Trailer - Gamescom 2010

Posted by Grey Saturday, August 28, 2010

We pick up our coverage on the recently ended Gamescom with a cinematic trailer of the promising Epic Mickey for Wii.

Forget the uninteresting teaser trailer shown at E3 that presented to us nothing but the title screen of Disney Interactive Studios and Junction Point Studios's Epic Mickey.

At Gamescom, an opening cinematic trailer of quite possibly, the most anticipated game in Wii history, were presented.

Depicting a younger and ostensibly badder Mickey Mouse, who chance upon an opportunity to raise hell in sorcerer Yen Sid's secret lab and in the process, inadvertently created a villainous monster.

The trailer ended abruptly with Disney promising more. Do check out the incredibly nostalgic video right after the jump.

Update: The complete, almost 7-minute long opening cinematic sequence.

For those interested in understanding what's exactly going on, here's the plot synopsis according to good ol' wikipedia:

A long time ago, Walt Disney, represented in the game by the sorcerer Yen Sid, created a Disney theme park themed pen-and-paper world for his forgotten and rejected creations, held in an intricate model on a table, and his study accessible through a mirror. Mickey, who steps through a mirror from his home and finds himself inside Yen Sid's study, sees the model, and waits until Yen Sid is gone before going back to take another look at it. Fiddling with it, Mickey tries to create a model of himself but creates instead a being that becomes the Phantom Blot, Mickey tries to erase it and accidentally spills paint and paint thinner onto the model. Hearing Yen Sid approaching, Mickey quickly tries to clean up with hurry and flees back to his home. However, it's too late and the world Yen Sid created turns into a wasteland. The Phantom Blot who takes control of the Wasteland from its first resident, Mickey's older half-brother - Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Oswald and the other residents of the Cartoon Wasteland fight against the Phantom Blot, but he eventually overwhelms them and twists their world into a dark and sinister version of itself, forcing Oswald into hiding.

Years later, Mickey has forgotten his past transgression until the Phantom Blot enters his home through the mirror and pulls him into the Cartoon Wasteland. Oswald, his will lost and twisted by his jealousy of Mickey's rise to fame, has formulated a plan to destroy Mickey. The Mad Doctor works closely with the Blot, creating robotic "Beetleworx", which are strange creatures that consist of combinations of various Disney cartoon characters. He also creates animatronic "buddies" for Oswald, looking like decrepit robotic versions of Mickey's friends, as Oswald wants Mickey's life and popularity for himself. Armed with a magical paintbrush that he managed to pull into the world with him, Mickey must stop the Phantom Blot, gain Oswald's trust and save the Wasteland.

Scheduled for release later this year, the development of Epic Mickey (also known as Super Secret Warren Spector Game Project or Junction Point Studios Project #2) is spearheaded by Warren Spector, best known for his works on System Shock and Deus Ex. With such accolades and an innovative drive to rejuvenate interest in vintage Disney characters, it goes without saying that Epic Mickey will be one hell of a game to look out for. In the meantime, check out some of the game arts and screenshots of the title.
