I don't know, I recommend checking the online version of the Disney store to see if they accept pre-orders for Epic Mickey, I am sure they would give additional information if you wanted to pre-order in store. As for myself, I have pre-ordered the Collector's Edition, even though I don't have a Wii, yet!

Also, this picture and my Avatar was taken with a Nintendo DSi System and Nyko Magnification Lens & Case for DSi.
Yeasterday I was at Target, and they had this error and on the shelf there it was, Epic Mickey, so picked it up, because it was in the old games section, and I tried the price check but it said Item not found, so I gave it to the clerk and she scanned it and it said could not sell until November 30, which I knew because this was the date online. But before I did this, I looked at the back and saw the controllers. It is only for 1 wii remote and nunchuck, in case you were wondering.
Here is a piece from the official media alert that was sent out today: Disney Interactive Studios today announced that critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey exclusively for Wii™ is now available at retail stores across North America. Disney Epic Mickey ushers in an innovative approach to gameplay as players assume the role of the iconic Mickey Mouse and are given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.
First previewed in June at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), North America’s most prominent video game showcase, the game captured more than 25 awards, including “Best Action/Adventure Game” from USAToday.com and “Best Wii Game” and “Best Action/Adventure Game” from IGN.com.
“We have poured our hearts, souls, and collective imaginations into a game that honors not only one of the most iconic characters on the planet, but Mickey Mouse’s creator--Walt Disney,” said Warren Spector, general manager and creative director, Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point. “Disney Epic Mickey is really about two epic journeys: an adventurous, heroic mouse and the creative genius behind him.”
Through the use of paint and paint thinner, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.
Disney Epic Mickey from Disney Interactive Studios is Rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and is available now at an MSRP of $49.99. There is also a collector’s edition of the game which includes a five inch collectible Disney Epic Mickey figurine, a DVD with behind-the-scenes footage, a stylized Wii Remote™ faceplate, and a pair of Wii system skins available now at an MSRP of $69.99.
Cool! Can you tell me if the bonus disc is any good? It's the only reason I'd purchase the collector's edition.
It sure is! Since Im on my laptop, i took the chance to put the dvd in, and you'll love the contents in it. Theres plenty of behind the scenes featurettes that'll keep you occupied. I would recommend watching the featurettes on Oswald and Disneyland.
It also contains 4 classic Mickey cartoons remastered! One that I like thats included is "Thru the Mirror".
This is the 4 classic shorts you'll find:
1. Thru the Mirror
2. Lonesome Ghosts
3. Clock Cleaners
4. The Whalers

I really, really, reeeeeaaaaallly wish I could have gotten the collectors edition, but alas, I am in england where it just wasn't advertised. Ah well, I'll at least be picking up Tales of the Wasteland when it's in paperback!
