Later this year, Disney will be releasing a Wii game called Epic Mickey. It’s an action-platformer starring the quintessential mouse, but with a darker edge. Not only that, the game will be transformed into an actual book. Few details have been revealed on either title, but we’ll likely get more info at E3. [via NeoGAF]
In Nintendo’s fiscal report, they announced that Wii sales are down 21% from last year. This is probably due to fewer high-profile titles in 2009. This year will see a new Zelda, Mario, Metroid and several other big name titles, so I really don’t think this is a big issue. Besides, even with the downward slide, this was Nintendo’s third-best year ever.
The latest issue of Nintendo Power talks about the next De Blob game, among other things. One little sidenote mentions the announcement a new major game right around E3. Whether or not it will be anounced in the magazine or at E3 is not clear. Here’s hoping it’s a new F-Zero. PLEEEEEAAAAAAASE!!!
