Epic Mickey 2 makes surprise visit to PS Vita

Disney is giving Epic Mickey 2 another chance--announcing a new port of the months-old game for PS Vita.

The tale of Disney's Epic Mickey 2 doesn't have a happy ending. Warren Spector and Junction Point's platforming sequel fizzled when it launched last year, debuting to mediocre reviews. Oddly, Disney is giving the game another chance--announcing a new port of the months-old game for PS Vita.

The late-coming Vita version of the game will include some new features, including front touch "for greater painting accuracy," and tilt controls for the game's racing mode. There's also an "exclusive" wi-fi co-op mode, introducing online play to a title that was originally local co-op only.

There's no word on who's developing the Vita port in the PlayStation.Blog announce. Our guess would be Blitz Games Studios, who developed all the HD versions of the game. Junction Point, creator of the original Wii game, was shut down at the beginning of this year.

        Most 3DS games are 40 at launch as are vitas. So lots of people pay that much.

        I don't mind spending $40 on a really good game. $40 for a mediocre game and I'll pass.

      Update: A PlayStation Blog post confirms the port, at least for the UK. The Vita version will include touchscreen painting, tilt controls for racing, and online co-op.

      Seriously... I know everybody loves touch controls and tilty devices... but STOP IT ALREADY.. Either that or I hope they don't force these new controls on us and let us choose weather or not we could use them.
