Epic Mickey: Over 1 Million Sold
December turned out to be a very good month for Disney's Epic Mickey game. According to the NPD group who keeps track of these sorts of things, the lovable mouse helped propel sales of the game to the 1.3 million mark which made it land among the best-selling games for the month. These numbers are nothing to sneeze at, especially since Epic Mickey was released for the Wii gaming system only.
There's no doubt Epic Mickey sees the iconic Disney figure steeped in a bit of darkness, especially when compared with his other past habitats. Veteran game developer Warren Spector, was handed the reins for heading up the Epic Mickey project, and this move to reach beyond Disney's walls seems to be paying off if December's sales are any indication.
In a similar vein, Disney appears to be devling deeper into the gaming field, with a certain focus on social network site (think Facebook) gaming.
