Speaking at a New York Comic-Con roundtable last weekend, Warren Spector revealed that Junction Point Studios is “not committed” to having the Wii U version of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two ready for the console’s launch, due to uncertainty in Nintendo’s approval process.
According to NintendoWorldReport, Spector’s explained that development of the Wii U version of the game started just six months ago, and there are still a few “kinks” left to fix before it goes gold. Spector then added:
“The reason why we’re not committed to a date on the Wii U version is that no one has been through Nintendo’s approval process on the Wii U. We have no idea how long it will take for the game to go through approval. Disney is not going to be the reason why it will miss [November 18].”
All the other versions of Epic Mickey 2 were confirmed by Spector to launch on November 18th, with the Wii U port being the only potential late arrival.
Nintendo’s latest Wii U launch lineup still has the game scheduled to release on that date. We will keep an eye out for any additional information on Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two on the Wii U, and let you know as soon as the game’s release date is confirmed.
