Epic Mickey 2 will also feature a focus on drop-in/drop-out co-operative play with Oswald the Rabbit being playable in addition to Mickey. Mickey will be bringing back the beloved Paint and Thinner gameplay while Oswald will carry around a remote control that can manipulate electricity; utilizing both characters will be essential to in completing objectives. If a second player isn't around to control Oswald, he will become computer controlled as he is essential to the gameplay experience.
The adventure will return to Wasteland with Mickey and Oswald revisiting some areas from the first game, however, earthquakes and other disasters will change the appearance of these areas. In addition to returning areas, Warren Spector says that new areas will also be included. In addition to returning areas, your good or mischievous choices will directly affect what happens throughout the game; an example would be the type of songs and music that will occur during your experience.
Lastly, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will feature a largely improved camera system; this was a common complaint with the original.
