Epic Mickey set to change video games forever when it launches November 30th.

Disney Interactive Studios announced today that Disney Epic Mickey will be available on November 30 in North America, November 26 in the United Kingdom and November 25, 2010 in Europe. With its innovative style of gameplay using paint and thinner to dynamically change the game world, Disney Epic Mickey is one of the most anticipated titles of 2010.

Here’s a newly released video showing the Journey Mickey takes during the game:

“I believe that video games tell stories as deep and as sophisticated as movies, books or any other medium. In Disney Epic Mickey, Mickey Mouse is faced with challenges worthy of a hero, while the players’ actions and their decisions throughout the game alter the gameworld,” said Warren Spector, general manager and creative director, Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point in Austin. “We are honored and humbled by the anticipation for Disney Epic Mickey, and we could not be more excited to get the game in people’s hands so that they can experience the thrill of becoming a hero and controlling their own destiny.”

Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s long forgotten characters and attractions, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.

Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.

Disney Epic Mickey will be available exclusively for the Wii console and is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

    “Change video games forever”? There’s no doubt there is interest because of Warren Spector’s involvement, but c’mon. The idea of branching storylines based on player’s decisions has been done before, by Spector in Deus Ex and in practically every single BioWare game. The paint and thinner mechanic sounds suspiciously like Okami.

    I hope this game does well and they consider porting it to 360 or PS3. It makes sense financially for Disney to release it on all consoles, and Kinect and Move make a port possible. But third-party titles have a habit of selling poorly on Wii. And let’s face it, anyone who is excited for the fact it’s a Warren Spector game most likely owns a 360 or PS3. IF they own a Wii, it’s gathering dust.

    The mechanics may not be groundbreaking but the compilation in this format with this theme is definitely a first so stop the hating and start saving those duckie$. This is going to be a definite addition to the Wii library.
