Buena Vista Reveals Cancelled Mickey Concepts
In light of Junction Point Studio's closing, Buena Vista Games has revealed a slew concepts art pieces that were considered before Epic Mickey began.
For example, they considered a game called Spy Mickey:
It looks like they were going with a more sci-fi oriented title, as the art done by a former Buena Vista Game artist has shown. (Is Donald Duck covered in the car parts like armor? Digiduck?)
They also had ideas for a Super Smash Bros. style fighter with Disney characters (Let's call this Mickey Mouse Cartoon Crash: All Out Attack):
And finally, they wanted to revive the Rockateer (YES!) of all things (Hmm... how about Rockateer 2: On The Run?):
As someone who loathed Epic Mickey's handheld sequel, I have to say, a Rockateer game Starring Mickey Mouse or any Rockateer-related game on modern consoles would probably have been better by a mile. Actually, all of them sound pretty good, I have no idea why they didn't try any of these! Get on it Disney, or make Ducktales 3!
So g1s, which concept sounds the most intriguing to you?
I have to admit that the Daffy Duck one looks cool.
Different companies. Plus the continuities wouldn't work very well regardless of whether or not Disney owns them, they've proven before that they're not gonna slap on another franchise just because they can (Kingdom hearts being a good example, as they didn't add any Marvel)
man this news is like months old.
Disney Smash? That would have been awesome. Especially with Marvel & Lucasfilm up their sleeves...Holy crap the possibilities are insane! I mean who wouldn't want to pit Buzz Lightyear & Iron Man together or Darth Vader & Jafar...or Donald Duck & Howard the Duck :P
disney :hey here is an idea lets scrap this awesome idea for a dumb ass one we will call it epic mickey
Disney smash bros sounds the most interesting. I think it would sell.
Id like to point out that its more probable that the Donald "covered in car parts" is intended to be a giant Donald Mech. The car parts would have to shrink down to Donald size, and even then the proportions of the bill aren't right.
Think that's something? I remember hearing that something like this was originally conceived by Square to be the Dissidia game, but Disney didn't like the idea of their characters fighting so that's why Dissidia then was more about the Final Fantasy characters. I guess that would also explain why that one on here was cancelled too, so much potential WASTED. They didn't even have to make it overly violent, just cartoony with some magic here and there, Disney's known for magic.
Same here, there's so much potential! 50+ movies, countless characters, and a bottomless check book from the House of the Mouse.
Damn, that disney fighter is something people have been asking for ages. Would have been pretty damn cool to see it happen, and a Rocketeer game would have been pretty damn sweet as well.
Or they can get the team that worked on the Disney Capcom games in the 90s and have them make something good again. They have the money to look and fund these people.
The Sheriff of Nottignham, The Queen of Hearts, and the Horned King, all playable characters in a Smash game.
WHY IN EN-GRACIOUS FUCK WAS THAT NEVER MADE!!!!~!!!!!!!1 !!11!!!!!1111 I would've even taken it a replacment for Kingdom Hearts! DA FUCK Disney! WHYYYYYY!!!!Q!!
Oh how I would've loved the Disney fighting game concept...
Hmmmmm that's some finger licking good Disney art right there :)
Playing Ni no Kuni atm and having a lot of fun with it so I was wondering : What if Disney teamed up with a great western rpg maker and make something completely original with Disney style graphics ? That would be mind blowing !
Super Smash Disney sounds like the best thing that Kingdom Hearts fully realized.
