Disney has officially announced that the sequel to the 2010’s Wii exclusive Disney Epic Mickey is indeed in the works for all the current home platforms. Meanwhile, on Amazon.com, the official cover reveals PlayStation Move compatibility is in.
Titled Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, the new adventure by Deus Ex and Thief creator Warren Spector will apparently improve over the original in various ways, beyond the enhanced visuals.
As revealed to Associated Press, Epic Mickey 2 will feature a better camera system, talking and even singing characters (the original Wii version was rather silent), as well as drop-in drop-out co-op thanks to the introduction of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (Walt Disney’s first cartoon star created in 1927) as a Mickey Mouse companion. When not in the hands of another player, the AI will take care of Oswald.

As for PlayStation Move compatibility, there is no official confirmation yet, but we hardly need any since the game cover published on Amazon.com gives it away (see below).
This is not surprising of course since the game mechanics, which involve using a magic brush to interact with the world (by means of an on-screen pointer) for either bringing stuff back into existence (with paint) or dissolving it (with thinner), appear to be similar to the original Wii title. Not to mention the sequel is coming to the Nintendo platform as well.
According to Amazon.com, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is scheduled for release next October.
The European cover for Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two reveals the game will support stereoscopic 3D as well.
