It's sad to see a company that creates such great games to just get up and go.

I was however more disappointed when Project Sora announced there closer after producing only one game, Kid Icarus: Uprising.
If that’s not going out with a bang, I don’t know what is.

Thanks for the votes everyone.

I just hope Disney will keep Oswald around after this and not just sweep him under the rug.

Come on Disney, make an Ozzie figure for Infinity....

As much as I'm sad to hear JP close, it really was inevitable with the poor sales of EM2.

I really enjoyed the first one and hoped that they'd fix many of its problems with the second, but they didn't. In fact I even preferred the original over the sequel, but then I did buy the awful Wii U version. The 3DS was pretty fun though.

It's a shame, but it makes me wonder what Warren Spector will do next.

It's a shame to hear,as Epic Mickey was one of my favourite series on the Wii.
But hopefully Oswald won't disappear into obscurity again,hey he might appear in Disney Infinity.
