Entertainment – Mickey Mouse reinvented as action hero

After more than 80 years he first appeared in Steamboat Willie, Mickey Mouse is poised to make his debut as the lead character in a computer game, The Guardian reported.

Disney’s popular character has got a year-long makeover which has transformed him into a vintage-looking yet three-dimensional cartoon character.

Disney wants to establish Mickey as an action hero just like Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. The company wants to build on his new fame with games franchise and lots of cool merchandise to attract the younger generation.

“We’ve pulled Mickey out of the world of cartoons which is where he belongs and we pull him into a world of Cartoon Wasteland,” the paper reported game designer Warren Spector saying.

The Disney Epic Mickey game developed by Spector, is set for launch on Nintendo’s Wii console next year.

So get ready to see your favourite Mickey in the game roaming the Cartoon Wasteland, faces up to friends he cast aside and overshadowed with his own fame.
