Yes, the Wii’s Going Away But It Did Pretty Good Things For Mickey Mouse and Warren Spector

Kotaku- Epic Mickey was supposed to be one of the games that pumped new life into the Wii.

The 2010 creation carried big expectations with it, namely that the Wii exclusive would be the third-party creation that showed how outside parties could make games as compelling as releases from Nintendo's internal studios.

Things didn't work out that way, of course. As the Wii rides off into the sunset, third-party publishers and their marquee titles have largely abandoned the console. "We'll probably be the last significant Wii title, certainly the last significant third-party Wii title," says game design icon Warren Spector about Epic Mickey: The Power of Two."
