Ready for the game's launch


Two new Nunchuk controllers based on in-game items were revealed and look great.

Users will be receiving extra motivation for buying the Epic Mickey 2 Wii version instead the PS3 or 360 ones. This is the Wiimote and nunchuk controllers specially designed for the occasion.

Junction Point showed both on a preview session of the game's sequel. The Wiimote has the shape of Mickey's paintbrush and a glowing blue paint blob at the end of it. The second is a Nunchuk based on Oswald's remote device.

According to Joystiq:

You may not get HD graphics if you stick with the Wii for Epic Mickey 2, but you will have the opportunity to experience a more tactile verisimilitude. During a preview event for the sequel, Junction Point showed off prototypes for two new Nunchuk controllers based on in-game items.

The first is an updated version of PDP's "Paintbrush Chuk" accessory, designed to mimic Mickey's paintbrush. The new version has the Epic Mickey 2 logo and a glowing blue paint blob at the end of the brush. The second, and inexplicably more desirable of the two, is a Nunchuk based on Oswald's remote device, silver and boxy. It's like a literal "Wii Remote" (except, of course, it's a Nunchuk attached to an existing Wii Remote).

Being that these were both prototypes, and the game hadn't even technically been officially announced yet, there weren't any details to be had about pricing or availability. We'll keep you updated, because these silly controllers are fun.
