Its still only in the concept stage now, but realy, the concept art is a treat in itself. Think Disney heavily mixed with a demented steampunk vibe... Can't wait to see what it turns into.

Anyone going to answer my question? I wasn't being sarcastic, and though I have heard the term steampunk before, I don't know what it means.

IIRC Steampunk is basically Victorian-era Technology, accomplishing what we are capable of now and beyond. Think any science-fiction show, slap some propellors and smokestacks on the ships, add some wood paneling, and boom, you've got steampunk.

Heard about this a few months ago through a typo in a google search...

It's funny how people were generally lacking approval when they were making Kingdom Hearts, yet everyone seems to look forward to this one.

It's a Wii thing, from what I've heard on the rumor mill it's done Okami style.  Only in this case, you literally draw in parts of levels.

Just a rumor, IMO.

Theory: The machines took over Disney Land.The machines then proceed to rip each lovable Disney characters into bits and pieces. After that they rebuild said characters as Frankenstein monasteries. Having lost some pieces to certain characters in the slaughtering the machines mix two or more characters together. Resulting in steampunk cyborg monster(s) to roam the park. Mickey is the only one to escape.

Probability: Zero. Disney would never kill off all their charaters in such a fashion expect one..... Would they?

You'll never know why.

Well first of all, you have to consider the game's focal mechanic: using the wiimote, the player will "paint" entire parts of a level Okami style.  I've lost my source, but I've been affirmed by the cover art on GI that shows Mickey holding a paintbrush.

My bet is that it's a cycling of the old game titled Disney Villains, in which a line up of disney villains from the classic animation shorts stole some magical storybook and rewrote the endings.  In this case, they broke into the notorious Disney Vault.  Either that or something to do with Yensid's famous hat.  In either case, the villains, jealous of Mickey's fame, have altered the world as we know it to make them the stars.  Given the concept art of the destroyed epcot ball, I'll bet that they either escaped to our dimension or the change in the movies of the past altered the present in a cliche time traveler trick.  Either way, Mickey is left standing and has to fix the movies/put the villains back to make things right.  I guess I have two story theories, but only one ties in to the whole Okami thing, so I'll give it a whirl:

The 13 classic villains, the queen from snow white, the stepmother in cindirella, Maleficent, Captain Hook, Scar, Cruella DeVille, Pete, Ursula, Jafar, Gaston, Hades, Shan-Yu, and Frollo, all of them have an eternal jealousy of the mouse.  The 13, let's call them XIII, they have a plan to go back in time, alter their movies, and steal the spotlight from Mickey.  Guess who heads this plan.. Oswald The Lucky Rabbit, the character whose fame was stolen right out from under his nose.  Anyways, he and the XIII steal the sorcerer's hat from Yensid and use it to traverse time and alter all the films.  Little did they know that changing the past would destroy the future.  Without the icon of hope that Mickey should have become, the world is in ruin after a nuclear fallout.  The few remaining things left, due to their intangible nature, are Oswald, XIII, and Mickey.  Well, them and cockroaches :P.  Anyways, Mickey embarks on a quest to defeat Oswald, reclaim the hat, and fix the movies to make history the way it was supposed to be.  Of course, XIII won't let that happen so easily, and they have an arsenal of post-apocalyptic weaponry lying around.  Mickey, armed only with his trusty magic paintbrush (they made it into software, it's plausible), must keep himself alive long enough to take Oswald down and restore peace to the world.

Probability: 20%  Based around all we know so far, but the problem is that we don't know much.  I kinda blended together my two theories on this one, and it's the angle I'd take if I was on the dev team for this game.

Time to wait and see.

Edit:  Forgot to mention the Oswald spoiler, my first leak I caught said that the plot involved a cast of old chars jealous of Mickey's fame.  Who's older than Oswald himself?

If they manage to include Lilo&Stitch, they'll probably choose Dr. Hamsterveel over Gantu, since he is more of a misguided good guy compared to the evilness that is Hamsterveel.

True, but Gantu is older, more recognized, and a lot more intimidating when turned into a giant robot.

I want that Simba/Scar set damnit! The Stitch/Gantu one too!

Anyway Gantu was a villain in a Stitch game too, you know that Experiment 626 game for the PS2(it was fun as hell). So Gantu might be more recognizable to people even though Hamsterveel did appear in the later on stuff, also Gantu was there for the beginning thats a big plus for him. So they will probably use him over Hamsterveel. I always saw Hamsterveel as a I'm just here to be a mastermind villain for the plot character. There are tons of other villain characters more suitable for that job.

You'll never know why.

I got the mag today.  Turns out, I was right when it's an Oswald v.s. Mickey thing, but all of the other enemies were cartoons from the 30's as well. This does include Pete, but most notable is the "mad doctor".

The story begins in 1928, when Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is lost in a legal dispute and replaced by Mickey Mouse.  Oswald, as you can imagine, is pissed.  He wants his fame, his fortune, he wants Walt's attention.  He want's his life back, but his younger brother Mickey stole it.

"In the analogous fiction of Epic Mickey, the sorcerer Yensid crafts a beautiful world for [disney's] forgotten creations, and Oswald is its earliest resident.  This wondrous place bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain Disney theme park and its many attractions, and sits on a table in the sorcerer's study as an intricate model.  Stepping through a magic mirror from his home, Mickey stumbles into Yensid's study and becomes fascinated with the elaborate set.  Ever the troublemaker, Mickey waits for Yensid to leave, and then proceeds to fiddle with the model, accidentaly spilling paint and paint thinner all over the newly minted world.  Hearing the sorcerer's return and fearing discovery, Mickey hurriedly cleans up and flees back to his home, soon forgetting his transgression and proceeding on through years of fame and glory"  -GameInformer

However, the spill he caused warped the new world into a wasteland ruled by the infamous Phantom Blot.  Oswald and the other forgotten cartoons fight bravely to ward it off, but it overwhelms them and turns their fantasy land into a warped and twisted nightmare.  Mickey remains oblivious to this, until years later when the Blot emerges through the magic mirror and pulls him into the world of the forgotten.

The core mechanic lies in the paintbrush mickey holds as he is carried down.  Glittery or denoted areas can be drawn upon with a flick of the wrist to create platforms and walls, while enemies and structures made of the paint spill can be taken care of with a splattering of paint thinner.

The game also has a karma system, with various rewards and abilities earned depending on whether you rebuild or destroy the wasteland.

One of the unique parts that I look forward to is the setting.  In one level, for example, you enter the basement underneath It's a Small World, a room full of rotating conveyours, pendulums, cogs and gears, while the famous song plays backwards.

Apparently, Spector is interested in not only making this a trilogy, but he wants to do a remake of Duck Tales.
