Epic Mickey sequel to be multi-platform

Not Wii-only for 2012 Christmas release
Epic Mickey, which was a Wii-only release last time around, will get a sequel after all. News of a potential sequel seemed to be in doubt, with sales of the first installment of Epic Mickey failing to do as well as expected despite strong reviews and much critical acclaim.
The game, which apparently will be called Disney Epic Mickey 2 for the time being, will be a multi-platform offering this time and will include versions for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, as well as the Wii this time around. (The actual title of the game is still up in the air.)
The game will offer a two-player co-op split screen mode that will allow the second player to take control of Oswald The Lucky Rabbit, to work with Mickey to solve puzzles and fight enemies. Rumors had first surfaced back in August that Disney was considering a sequel, but it would seem that these newsletter details make it a lock. Look for the sequel to arrive in time before Christmas of 2012.
