The Epic Mickey series showed a lot of promise when the first game made its debut on the Nintendo Wii in 2010, but the second entry ended up being a commercial failure. Despite this, there are still many fans who would like to see this short-lived series make a comeback.

With this in mind, another piece of new - yes, new - Epic Mickey clothing has been spotted online, this time on a Korean website. This follows on from the Dutch Funko-Pop website last month listing an Epic Mickey-themed t-shirt. Here are images of both:





The artwork on the hoodie might even be a "new" render. Between this and the t-shirt, it seems rather odd for a series that's been out of action for years to suddenly be receiving brand-new apparel in 2020.

There's also a theory that it ties in with rumours - dating back to December last year - about the developer PlayMagic working on an "unannounced remaster" of a Disney IP.

These games had the potential to be fantastic. Strange that Disney has enough faith in the series to greenlight 2 sequels, but not enough to give the developers enough time and resources to polish them to where they should be.

I would like to see Epic Mickey return. I was really interested back in the day and then never got it.
I would love to see a return or maybe a new Mickey IP.
