Disney Reveals Infinity

Hey, it's those guys from Cars. And that pirate.

Disney have finally revealed Infinity, one of the worst kept secrets for some time. As expected, the game is somewhat like Activision’s Skylanders, but obviously draws on Disney’s massive library of already known characters. Much of what has been revealed in the last hour is similar to leaks, but it’s worth taking a proper look.

The press release called the project “its most ambitious gaming initiative ever” and says the game “unlocks the freedom to create stories and play experiences starring beloved characters from The Walt Disney Company and Pixar Animation Studios.”

“Disney Infinity introduces a new way to interact with the best of Disney on one game platform, both now and in the future,” said John Pleasants, co-president, Disney Interactive. “With this innovative approach to gaming, Disney Infinity will bring to life new characters, stories and environments from The Walt Disney Company over time in a way that will delight fans and gamers alike.”

Also mentioned is the “Toy Box”, the project’s codename, which is now a virtual space in which all the characters can come together. The press release talks about “Play Sets” which are themed, story-driven sections which include puzzles, enemies and locations. Items collected from Play Sets can be used in the Toy Box.

  1. Damn, that looked pretty cool if i’m honest :)

  2. I know it’s a kids game, but the way they’ve stylised the characters looks crap imo…

  3. Would be very interested but not at that price

  4. Well that’s my 4 year old sorted for next Xmas.

  5. Disney really have learnt how to print money, although it’s seemingly by copying someone else’s game and then adding their incredibly popular and varied catalogue of characters…

    It actually looks quite good though!

  6. I hope they do a Marvel sequel next year. Its a nice idea though bound to sell. Hope they have Hades…..

  7. My girlfriend would be all over this if you didn’t have to buy stupid figures to unlock characters in the game…

  8. I think i just heard of a lot of people groaning due to their kids wanting this and procceeding to bug them untill they do. It’s a blatant copy of Skylanders but it will be interesting to see if it will enjoy the same amount of success as Skylanders. I predict we will see Star Wars characters make an appearance as well.

  9. Watch how the money roles in.

  10. Hmmm… this with Nintendo characters should have been a Wii U launch game
