It's not often you get to be Mickey Mouse, but in Disney Epic Mickey it looks like you'll get to spend some time in the shoes that built the House of Mouse. In this second part of the trailer, Mickey comes out of his hangover to realize he can't remember the last 24 hours. Oops, I mean he wakes up in Wasteland as a prisoner of The Mad Doctor. It looks like an interesting game. Maybe not one I'd pick up for me, but the wife might be into it.
