Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two makes the jump to PS Vita June 18

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, the co-op platformer from Blitz Games Studios starring a cast of Disney characters, is headed to PlayStation Vita June 18 with enhancements designed for Sony's handheld, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.

PS Vita players will be able to control the paint thinner and electric beam weapons by using the device's touchscreen as well as adjust the camera and control vehicles using the Vita's "orientation-based controls." Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two on PS Vita will also allow players to direct AI, select, drag and drop sketches, pop bubbles and navigate menus with the touchscreen.

In March, a tweet from Disney U.K. revealed that the platformer was headed to PS Vita in Europe. For more on the game, be sure to read Polygon's Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two feature about how Junction Point gave a voice to Oswald, one of the game's heroes and an early Disney creation.

Update: We reached out to Disney and Sony to see who was handling the PS Vita port. According to a representative for Disney, Blitz Games Studios, the developer that also worked on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, is developing the PS Vita port "in conjunction with Sony."
