Disney Interactive surprised us a little when they announced that the sequel to their Wii-exlcusive Epic Mickey would also be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS this time around. Now in an interview with Eurogamer
developer Junction Point head Warren Spector has confirmed that Windows PC and Mac OS will also get in on the action for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.
Despite wide acclaim for Spector's work on games like Wing Commader, System Shock, Thief and Deus Ex, the original Epic Mickey fell short of most reviewer's expectations
. It's hard to say whether the multiplatform ambition this time around is likely to make things better or worse, as development is now spread across three studios and reportedly five countries.

"We've taken a very interesting development approach. My studio director Paul Weaver came up with a way of building a virtual team all around the world. So we have people working in Leamington in the UK, in Bulgaria, China, Canada, California, Utah. We have an enormous virtual team.
Epic Mickey 2 is currently scheduled to launch in September 2012.
