‘Epic Mickey’ Game a Hit, Selling More Than 1M Units in December
A darker, more mischievous Mouse seems to be doing the trick, as sales of Disney’s “Epic Mickey” numbered 1.3 million during the month of December, according to figures made available by the NPD Group.
The numbers represent an even larger achievement, given that that game was released in only one format, for Nintendo Wii, and didn’t enjoy a push from the more popular Sony Playstation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360.
“Epic Mickey” ranked among the top-selling games for the holiday season, and seems to signal validation of Disney’s choice to have the game developed by outsider and famous game guru Warren Spector, who pored endlessly over archives to get the details of the game just right.
That Disney is continuing to make strides in the interactive field also seems to justify their deepening investment in that arena. On another gaming front, Disney’s “Tap Tap Revenge 4″ is also setting records, as iTunes most popular free app du jour.
