Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two confirmed!

After months of speculation, the news have been leaked.
Epic Mickey 2 has been confirmed.

 (Trailer for the first game)

It is coming out for the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360. The trailer will debut tomorrow on GTTV.  More details available here.

Frank Welker is confirmed to voice Oswald.  He is a very well respected voice actor with a resume that goes back to 1969.  While he is most well known for making noises (in all seriousness, he was asked to come up with "a lobster sneezing" and he proceeded to do so)  both as stand alone and for characters such as Jimmy Neutron's Goddard and Aladdin's Abu,  but he can and has done "Speaking" roles. Most recently he was heard on Scooby Doo Mysteries Inc. as both Fred and Scooby Doo.  He has performed Fred since it's inception in 1969 and -according to IMDB- Scooby Doo since 2003. 

The one thing I'm not overly happy about is it on other systems.  There were a few complaints about the first game.  One of the complaints was "Since it's not on the PS3 and the Xbox -which has more power- it probably isn't a good game."  As you can see, that is a very large logical fallacy.  The game was originally going to be on JUST the Xbox and PS3, but Warren Spector mentioned that the Wii version would have to be a port from the ground up.  When he was told he could just do a Wii version, he was ecstatic and the rest is history.

So, your opinions?  What do you want to see? How do you think Frank Welker (Seriously, look at his IMDB page.  It's AMAZING.)  will do as Oswald?  Which movies will they cover?  How will they deal with the first game's multiple endings? 

edit: Here is the trailer!
