Disney Infinity is coming… to get you
One, two Disney‘s coming for you! Three, four better lock the door
Due for release this August, it will be the game that every kid wants and every parent fears. Disney Infinity is set in a fantastical world where players have unprecedented freedom and endless opportunity to create stories and play experiences starring the beloved characters from Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios’ most popular franchises.
There are two main modes in this game, Play Set and Toy Box. Each character play set is essentially a self-contained world with its own gameplay, based on a specific movie or series with recognizable characters and storylines. Characters from one world cannot enter into another world, but players can put any character together in Toy Box mode.
In the mould of Skylanders you will soon be forking out for the game, portal and characters… Enjoy! The starter pack comes with three figures – Mr Incredible, Jack Sparrow and Sulley. At launch there will be over 20 characters and toys available which Disney will continue to add too throughout 2013. You’ll also get one Power Disc in the starter pack which can be put under your characters to give them extra abilities.
So parents of the world just when you thought the collection was almost complete it’s time to start all over again Disney style. If things go their way, oh and they will, every child will be collecting these new figures. The Skylanders, which have already raked in over £500m of our money, will be soo not cool, pushed to one side, gather dust and eventually be sold at car boots across the country for 50p. Its all part of the circle of life, If you don’t believe me just watch Toy Story 2 that will explain it. You see we were all like this once, I remember making my mum queue outside of Toys R Us for 5 hours to get my Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle action figure.
And don’t worry it’s getting released on every format you can think of so there is nowhere to hide.
