GLENDALE, California (AP) -- Mickey Mouse will not be bad in the coming "Epic Mickey" video game. He was just drawn that way.
Warren Spector, creative director of Disney Interactive Studios' Junction Point, said the beloved international icon will not transform into a snarling rat as originally planned for the game when players make mischievous choices, such as pilfering treasures from a store or erasing characters with thinner. Instead, Mickey will take on a smudgy look if he does something naughty.
"We're not going to change Mickey's image so much," said Spector.
