Junction Point, PDP make Wii Nunchuks for Epic Mickey 2

Epic Mickey 2 gets remote add-ons just for Wii

Epic Mickey 2 developer Junction Point and its hardware accessory partner PDP have shown a pair of special Wii Nunchuk add-ons being built just for the game. The lead, an updated version of the Paintbrush Chuk, resembles Mickey's magic paintbrush and now has a glowing blue tip. A completely new entry, however, is based around newly introduced second character Oswald's remote and has both a glowing pink remote as well as a unique red analog stick.

How soon the controllers would be available and how much they would cost were left open, although it's likely that either Wii add-on will show around when the game itself ships, most likely before the end of the year. The original cost $20 and may be the target price for both the Mickey and Oswald sets.

Epic Mickey 2 will support similar controls on the PS3 using PlayStation Move, although there aren't any known plans for a custom wand. Kinect's purely gesture-based approach to motion rules it out from an equivalent. [via Joystiq]
