Disney icon Mickey Mouse becomes the videogame hero after his US debut as “Disney Epic Mickey” last Tuesday, November 30, 2010 in “Wasteland”, which also features an alternate world comprising Walt Disney Company‘s long forgotten characters and attractions, according to international news sites.

The video game is designed by Warren Spector, with 2D cinemas by Powerhouse Animation Studios, Inc., and developed for Wii consoles by Junction Point Studios. The game will put the players into large yellow shoes of Mickey and will challenge them to use wits, paint and paint thinner in order to defeat enemies, as well as to save old friends and restore a ruined land.

Mickey‘s foes include “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit,” the pioneered Disney cartoon figure which turned bitter because the mouse soared to fame while he sank into obscurity.

The Disney Interactive Studios introduced Mickey‘s videogame while Nintendo is working to keep gamers delighted using Wii consoles. Wii was launched in 2006 with its innovative motion-sensing control and became a must-have videogame console for gamers.

Although Microsoft hit the market with its hot-selling Kinect hardware and Sony with Move hardware, Nintendo’s Wii were also hot sellers in US during the Black Friday. As estimated by the Japanese videogame titan, 600,000 Wii consoles and 900,000 DS handheld game gadgets were sold between November 21 and 27, 2010.

According to Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo, America, “US shoppers bought about 9,000 Nintendo hardware systems nonstop for every hour of every day during the week of Black Friday”. He also mentioned that the strong start to the traditional shopping season meant that Wii consoles haven’t lost their magic in the market.
