Epic Mickey 2 on PS Vita This June with Enhanced Features

Epic Mickey 2 on PS Vita

We’re always looking for new experiences to bring to PS Vita owners, and many times it’s as easy as looking at the extensive catalog of games that make up the PS3 library. The powerful hardware included in PS Vita has no problem handling PS3-quality experiences on the go, and we’re excited to bring another PS3 title to your favorite handheld. Today we’re announcing that PS Vita owners will be able to check out Disney Interactive’s Epic Mickey 2 on PS Vita next month, on June 18th.

Epic Mickey 2 comes to PS Vita with a number of new features that are only made possible with PS Vita’s unique touch capabilities. On the backend, we’ve added things like ad hoc network functionality, but we’ve also implemented new ways to control the game. You’ll be able to control paint, thinner and Oswald’s electric beam using the touch screen, as well as use orientation-based controls for both the camera and while driving.

You’ll find added touch screen functionality elsewhere; use it to give instructions to AI, select/drag/drop sketches, burst bubbles and projectiles, and navigate all menus.

We think that Epic Mickey 2 will be a great addition to the ever-growing games line-up on PS Vita, and know that we’re continually searching for the best games—whether brand new titles or ones existing already on PS3—to bring to PS Vita gamers everywhere. Until next time, game on!

No retail release sucks. You definitely lost my purchase and I’m sure I’m not alone with this decision. I’m sick of all these PSN only releases. My memory card is full enough as it is. I’m tired of having to decide what to get rid of just to make room for something else.

I love supporting the Vita and try to pick up as much content as I can. Give us a break with all these download only games. Better yet, make a bigger memory card or better support for swapping them out. I know a lot of people complain about the current pricing of memory cards, but we bought them anyway. Make a larger capacity and ill buy that too.

I will definitely be picking this game up, but probably not on release day as my gaming catalogue for the Playstation Vita is full at the moment.

I automatically decided I would buy this until I saw it was digital only. Shame. Now I won’t buy it–just like I would have bought Earth Defense Force but didn’t.

I don’t like having my games locked to a virtual account that limits my access to things I pay for, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people feel the same.

$4.99 and I’ll consider it.

So looking around I see you can get this game new for $40 on 360 and PS3, and this game just came out in November 2012.

So did the game just suddenly get a price cut on those systems or are we basically paying console price for this game on our handheld? Is this what I get to look forward to in the future? Getting to pay close to what console gamers pay.

I’m fine if it launched at a higher price ($50-$60) and just dropped, but if it launched at $40 on these systems, then not so much. This needs to have comparable graphics and frame rate if I’m expected to pay close to the same price for this, and have to make room on my memory card. JMO.

If it cost more than $30,00, won’t be fair. A digital-only game can’t cost more than $20,00

~$40 for a game that failed (for the most part) when it was on consoles….meaning it has no history of being put together well, too much for me. I’m sure some will buy it because it has Mickey but I’m guessing the majority of Vita owners are more knowledgeable and know of it’s history and will wait for a price cut.

Thanks for confirming me NOT buying it by doing a digital only release.

I was excited after seeing this game will be getting a Vita port, but digital download only? Sorry but this is a deal breaker for me. Those Vita memory cards are expensive as hell.

I would have so gotten this if it was a retail release. I dont like downloading large full games onto my memory card. They are too expensive to fill up so fast. Guess i’ll just settle for the Jak and Daxter trilogy.

Is this PSN only? or is it also a retail game? And how much is it?
