NYCC: On ‘Epic Mickey 2′ Graphic Novel, Pin Buffs, Voices, Collectors Edition and Cartoon?

It seems like less than a week before, I was in Disneyland checking out new areas of ‘Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two,’ but here I found myself once more in the presence of Junction Point director and driving force Warren Spector at a press-only event at New York Comic-Con. This time, however, we were also joined by Peter David, who penned the graphic novels for both games, as well as a lustrous career writing comics, particularly for Marvel.

While most of the materials presented were a rehash of what I had learned and seen the week before, there was plenty of new information strewn throughout, so here’s my addendum to the original report.

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ ‘Ralph Meets Vanellope’ Clip, Video Game Teaser

'Wreck-It Ralph' Teaser PosterWalt Disney Animation Studios has released a new clip from its upcoming film, Wreck-It Ralph as well as a teaser for the video game being developed by Activision.

In the clip, titled ‘Ralph Meets Vanellope,’ we (not to be confused with the royal we) pick up with Ralph (John C. Reilly) as he finds himself climbing a peppermint tree on the hunt for the medal he won in ‘Hero’s Duty’ but instead finds himself face to face with the spunky Vanellope Von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) who quickly puts Ralph and his patience level to the test. It’s not all for naught however as she appears to be more than willing to educate him on the dangers of the double-stripe.

‘Epic Mickey 2′ Controllers for Nintendo Wii and Wii U from PDP

Epic Mickey 2 Controllers from PDPJust as they did for the original ‘Epic Mickey’ title, PDP will be releasing a new paintbrush controller in honor of ‘Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.’ Exclusive to the Nintendo Wii and Wii U, the PDP paintbrush is an upgrade from the original model, introducing an interactive element which causes the tip to glow blue or green depending on Mickey’s actions inside the game.

The paintbrush wont be the only offering, however. As ‘Epic Mickey 2′ incorporates couch co-op play featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, PDP is also introducing a clicker controller patterned after Oswald’s remote control from the game.
