What do Jack Sparrow, Mr. Incredible, and Sully have in common? They are all characters in a new game from Disney Interactive and Avalanche Software due to release on every major platform and then some this June called Disney Infinity.
Disney Infinity will bring Skylanders-like collectables into a “Toy Box” (play on words with sand box) game where the figurines comes to life on your large (or not so large) screen.
Unlike Skylanders, Disney Infinity allows the linking of two characters at one time and a power-up in the form of a “power disc”.
From the press release announcing the game:
The Disney Infinity Platform includes:
- Disney Infinity Interactive Pieces – Initially a line of 40 collectible interactive pieces will be introduced that allow players to expand and customize their play experiences.
- Disney Infinity Interactive Character Figures – Seventeen character figures will allow players to experience a variety of their favourite characters in true to property experiences and in “Toy Box” mode.
- Disney Infinity Base – When figures are placed on the Infinity base, they unlock the world and play experiences of Disney Infinity.
- Disney Infinity Power Discs – Interactive discs can be placed on the Infinity base to power up characters and “Toy Box” with unique powers, customizations and gadgets.
When launched in June, there will be 20 character figurines available with an additional 20 more released through the end of the year.
Disney Infinity will be released worldwide on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PC, and mobile devices.
