Days after the end of Disney Infinity was announced, my local Walmart’s once overflowing shelves were stripped bare.
Where previous Disney Infinity expansions have worked within the rules and tools of the core game, the new Marvel Battlegrounds set breaks those rules, creating a Power Stone-esque competitive brawler that’s almost worthy of a standalone release.
Rather than release a fourth core game in as many years, the Disney Infinity team is focusing on expanding version 3.0 in 2016, with fresh content coming from all corners of the Disney universe including Star Wars, Marvel, Zootopia and The Jungle Book.
Yesterday saw some Star Wars excitement as a video circulated suggesting one of The Force Awakens’ biggest unanswered questions was actually answered in Disney Infinity’s movie play set. Nah. Didn’t happen.
The Disney Infinity Star Wars: The Force Awakens adventure loosely follows the events of the new movie from start to finish, though one particular dramatic development is glossed over. Spoilers are going to happen here, kids.
While Star Wars mobile games are going crazy with The Force Awakens content, the only way to play through bits of the new movie on your game console is via Disney Infinity 3.0—and it feels very familiar.
Behold the poster for Disney Infinity 3.0’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens Play Set, featuring what looks like a young Han Solo toy attacked by a Zippo. The set hits stores (and my desk) on Friday.
Disney harnessed the light side of the Force to create six variant Disney Infinity Star Wars figures with Lightsabers that actually light up. Then they tapped into the dark side to make each of the six exclusive to a different retailer.
First Skylanders, then Disney Infinity and now LEGO—the video game sections of major retailers everywhere are slowly being taken over by toys. Which plastic portal of power should you be plugging into your game console? Let’s see if we can help.
Today we get our first look at the Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars: The Force Awakens play set in action, and I’m finally excited about the combo.
The second Star Wars adventure set for Disney Infinity 3.0 begins with Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie and the droid flying escape pods to Tatooine for their first meeting with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Wait a minute...
Children’s console games have come a long way in recent years. Gone are the motion controlled mini-game bundles and second rate movie tie-ins. In their place we have experienced and talented developers working with budgets the size of blockbuster movies.
One of Disney’s downloadable creations for Infinity 3.0 is a paint turf war mini-game called “Squid Wars”. It’s far from perfect, but isn’t it oh-so-adorable that they tried?
There was a time when every animated movie came with a quick and dirty platforming tie-in console game. Thanks to the magic of Disney Infinity 3.0 those days are back, only now they come with toys.
I played the first Disney Infinity. Hated it. More importantly, my kids hated it too, because it had too many menus, janky controls and some tedious mission design. Yet here we are, having skipped the sequel, for Dadtaku purposes playing our way through Disney Infinity 3.0. Or as most kids will know it, “the Star Wars…
Saturday morning used to be all about playing with toys and watching cartoons. Let’s do that!
I shouldn’t care about this game. Disney Infinity was terrible, and 2.0 wasn’t much better. And yet, there is hope for 3.0. Mostly because of the involvement of Ninja Theory (Enslaved) and Sumo Digital (Outrun 2006). And just partially because of the sweet figures.
The finest band of Rebel scum since Luke and Pals get their due in this fall’s Disney Infinity 3.0. That’s right, my favorite Star Wars is currently an animated series.
