Disney Interactive has unveiled Disney Infinity, an interactive game platform that allows users to create stories and play experiences starring characters from The Walt Disney Co. and Pixar Animation Studios. Disney Infinity allows players to both experience original adventures in some of their favorite Disney and Pixar worlds and to build their own worlds using the power of their imagination.
Disney Infinity integrates collectible character figures that come to life in the game. These figures provide experiences that are true to these characters and stories, as well as the opportunity to bring characters from various films to play together. This game universe will launch in June across all consoles and will have a phased roll out across mobile and online devices throughout this year.
Throughout each story-driven experience, players will solve challenging puzzles, battle enemies, and explore locations from famous Disney properties, while collecting characters, vehicles, and gadgets from each world and saving them to a virtual toy box. Players can access their toy box and build and customize their own unique virtual world using their favorite characters, vehicles, settings, and accessories. Disney Infinity allows players the opportunity to share their creations in the toy box mode with friends both online and offline.
The Disney Infinity Platform includes Disney Infinity Interactive Pieces, Interactive Character Figures, the Infinity Base, and Disney Infinity Power Discs.
It seems very similar to Skylanders, which everyone already is familiar with and loves. I think this game from Disney will open up that market even further, being able to use so many Disney characters and have them crossover into each other’s universe is going to make for phenomenal gameplay!
