About: Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure Wii game that sends Mickey Mouse on a journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world with lands inspired by Disney’s animated films and theme parks, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and determine Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.
Celebs at the launch were "Dancing with the Stars" winner Jennifer Grey and co-star Kyle Massey. Like other guest I could have met, talked with and probably snagged an interview but I confess I was excited to try out the game. After taking a paparazzi style photo I headed over to the gaming station to play me some Epic Mickey.
For those that are collectors, there's a collector’s edition of the game which includes a five inch collectible Disney Epic Mickey figurine, a DVD with behind-the-scenes footage, a stylized Wii Remote™ faceplate, and a pair of Wii system skins available now at an MSRP of $69.99.
There's also a Epic Mickey Wii secondary controller designed to resemble the magical paintbrush that Mickey wields in the game world, complete with wood-grained texture and soft, safe foam tip.
Also during the event attendee could take a photo with Steamboat Willie, received collectible custom sketch drawings from the video game artists and of course play the game. Since I have no photos with Steamboat Willie or a custom sketch drawing, can you guess what I was doing...gaming it up with Mitch of Gay NYC Dad!
