In honor of International Talk Like A Pirates Day, we have a new video look at the ‘Pirates World’ portion of the upcoming Disney Interactive Studios title, ‘Disney Universe’ which will be available to own October 25 (and now available for pre-order from Amazon.com).
Destructoid has reported that one of its readers had been offered an online survey which discusses a sequel for Epic Mickey, tentatively titled Epic Mickey 2. Amongst potential box artwork, possible subtitles such as Epic Mickey 2: Return of the Mad Doctor, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, Epic Mickey 2: Mystery on Mean Street were offered up. The gist of the game appears to be co-op play between Mickey Mouse and half-brother Oswald, presumably picking up where the first game ended.
At the Microsoft booth at the Disney D23 Expo booth last week, I had the opportunity to get some time in with the new Disneyland Adventures game for Microsoft Xbox Kinect by Frontier Developments. After seeing the E3 announcements and follow-up gameplay, I had high expectations for this home-away-from-home title and I am pleased to say I did not walk away disappointed.
Jen served as my guide as she pointed out the fundamentals of the game, which you can see in the eight-minute video below.
It appears Halloween has come a day early as new information for ‘Disney Universe’ from Disney Interactive Studios has surfaced today rather than the original anticipated date of August 18, otherwise known as Disney D23 Expo-eve. Although we expect to see more character costumes and screenshots within the next day or so, Disney has released a new gameplay trailer featuring The Lion King, one of six worlds that will come with the game initially, with more promised in the way of Downloadable Content on the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox platforms in the future. Other previously share worlds include Disney/Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. and WALL-E along with Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Disney’s Tapulous released its newest entry in the popular TapTap series, ‘Glee’ for the iPhone today and it’s already receiving warm reviews from fans of the game and series alike. The perfect symbiotic relationship, the free app allows players to experience the game while listening to some of their favorite tracks from ‘Glee,’ which includes the show’s standout cover of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin” and other occasionally promoted songs. Additional songs can be purchased as 2-pack bundles for $.99 in-app or with Tapulous credits.
Disney Interactive Media Group (DIMG) invites Disney fans and families to step into its pavilion at the D23 Expo—The Ultimate Disney Fan Event—for hands-on fun with the latest interactive entertainment products for video game consoles, mobile devices and online, based on beloved Disney stories and characters. Every day of the D23 Expo, taking place August 19-21, 2011 at the Anaheim Convention Center, will be packed with hours of game play, special guests, interactive art contests, giveaways and more!
Guests of the D23 Expo will be able to suit up, power up and team up as they enter Disney Universe, a multiplayer action-adventure video game set in a mix-up of Disney and Disney/Pixar inspired worlds that will be released this fall.
The video goes into the world of Wall-E, one of six that will ship with the game, with more to become available via downloadable content on the Xbox and PlayStation 3 platforms. We also get to see one of the players dressed in the Wall-E costume along with a sighting of Buy-N-Large in gameplay.
The trailer features a family as they transition from the Disneyland theme park to their living room, virtually experiencing the park as they meet & greet with Snow White and Mickey Mouse and play mini-games inside iconic attractions such as Peter Pan’s Flight, the Matterhorn and Pirates of the Caribbean, all to the tune of the Fantasmic! theme.
Below is our gallery of stills from the game which we have previously shared:

The app will sell for $.99 although Disney Mobile will also be releasing a free app for Cars 2 which features a lite version of the game in addition to movie and video game content such as trailers, images, web links and other fun content.
