Epic Mickey may come on Xbox 360, PS3

Disney is prepping a paint-stroke gameplay centered Epic Mickey
game. Developed by Junction Point, this game was touted to be
Nintendo Wii exclusive. At the recent DICE 2010 event, Disney
Interactive Media Group head Steve Wardsworth and his
colleague Graham Hopper hinted that Epic Mickey may go on
Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in future, as reported  by GamaSutra.

Mickey Mouse plays the protagonist in the game and as obvious,
Wiimote would be used to the maximum all the way. Since "the
key mechanic [in the game] is an ink and paint mechanic", it
seemed "completely intuitive to people" to play the title using a
Wiimote, noted Hopper during an interview. Just like Wiimote is
used in Dead Space’s hardcore gameplay, in Epic Mickey,
paint-stroke intuitiveness has been focused upon. Nintendo Wii
has a larger audience for playing semi-casual and easy-to-play
style of games.
As most gamer knows, Microsoft’s Project Natal and Sony’s
MotionController would debut later this year. Obviously, these
consoles would like to make Mickey jump and run. When asked
whether Disney would make Epic Mickey work with Project Natal
and Motion Controller, Hopper said that Epic Mickey has been in
development for quite some time, adding, "If we started it 6
months ago we would have potentially thought differently about it."

Wardsworth noted, "We have a very large audience base that has
Wiis in their home", making Nintendo’s platform a natural choice.
"That’s not to say that we won’t go to other platforms", he
added. Looks like Disney would certainly consider porting the
game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in the near future.
