December 21, 2010 – Starting today fans can get their hands on the soundtrack for Disney Interactive Studio’s, Disney Epic Mickey, featuring the music of Emmy Award winning composer, Jim Dooley. The Disney Epic Mickey soundtrack was recently named X-Play’s Best Soundtrack of 2010 by G4TV.com. Released by Walt Disney Records, the digital score includes 20 tracks available through iTunes and other major digital media retailers.
“Jim Dooley’s music perfectly captures the environment and feel of Disney Epic Mickey, raising players to great heights of emotion. His music perfectly completes the world of Wasteland,” said Warren Spector, general manager and creative director, Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point. “It is with great pride and pleasure that we make this incredible soundtrack available to video game and music fans alike.”
Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming video game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of discovery and redemption. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s long forgotten characters and attractions, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.
Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.
Disney Epic Mickey from Disney Interactive Studios is Rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and is available now at an MSRP of $49.99 for the Wii™ console. There is also a collector’s edition of the game which includes a five inch collectible Disney Epic Mickey figurine, a DVD with behind-the-scenes footage, a stylized Wii Remote™ faceplate, and a pair of Wii console skins available now at an MSRP of $69.99.
