Disney Epic Mickey: Rebrushed is set to make its debut on PC more than ten years after its initial release exclusively on the Wii. This revamped version, boasting modern graphics and controls, will be known as Disney Epic Mickey: Rebrushed. The game’s trailer teases players with a glimpse of the revamped opening cinematic, recreating the allure of the original game.

In Epic Mickey, players follow the journey of the titular character as he is transported into the Wasteland, a realm filled with forgotten Disney characters such as Oswald The Lucky Rabbit. Armed with a magical paintbrush, players have the ability to alter the world by unleashing paint to rebuild sections or turning adversaries into allies. Conversely, players can use paint thinner to erase elements of the world and eliminate foes. The storyline, environment, and soundtrack dynamically adapt based on the player’s choices, offering character upgrades that align with their playstyle.

Disney Epic Mickey: Rebrushed not only features remastered artwork and improved controls but also introduces an expanded repertoire of platforming moves for Mickey. Players can now utilize a dash, ground pound, and sprinting capabilities to navigate the world with greater ease. The development of this remake is being spearheaded by Purple Lamp, the studio responsible for recent Spongebob Squarepants remakes like Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated.

While Epic Mickey garnered a mixed reception over the years, with both valid and unjust criticisms, the remake seeks to address some of the initial shortcomings. Issues such as lackluster platforming mechanics and camera problems have been acknowledged and are being rectified in this reimagined version. However, some criticisms stem from fans desiring Warren Spector, the game’s creator, to focus on projects more aligned with his earlier work like Deus Ex, rather than a family-friendly Wii platformer.

Despite the varied responses to Epic Mickey, Warren Spector expressed personal satisfaction with the project. In an interview with RPS in 2013, he reflected on the divergent reactions, stating, “‘What do you mean you’re not making a game about a guy wearing a trench coat and sunglasses and wielding a gun? Go back and make the kind of games you always used to make.'” Spector highlighted the commercial success of the game, with the original Epic Mickey being his best-selling title and its sequel, released in 2012, being the second-best-selling. He emphasized the positive feedback received from fans of different ages and backgrounds, particularly Disney enthusiasts.

Disney Epic Mickey: Rebrushed has yet to announce a specific release date but is targeting a launch in 2024. As the game undergoes further development and refinement, players can anticipate a nostalgic and rejuvenated experience that pays homage to Disney’s rich heritage while offering modern enhancements for a new generation of gamers.
