It was bound to happen sooner or later: universes will collide when two of Disney’s largest properties, Marvel and Club Penguin join forces later this month. Details appear to be sparse at the moment, but beginning June 14, Club Penguin members will have the ability to suit up as their favorite Marvel superheroes and villains.
At the 2012 E3, Disney Interactive Studios took the opportunity to share new levels and information on its upcoming multi-platform release, ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2.’ In addition to sharing new levels which include a side-scrolling transition level that pays homage to Disney’s 1937 Silly Symphonies short, The Old Mill, a boss level featuring a blotworx patterned after the Elliott (of Pete’s Dragon) float from the Main Street Electrical Parade was shown, as well as featured in the new trailer below.
At E3, Disney Interactive Studios has confirmed a Stitch Kingdom report from earlier this month that it would be releasing a spin-off of its popular ‘Where’s My Water?’ mobile game, featuring Perry the Platypus /aka/ Agent P from Disney XD’s ‘Phineas and Ferb.’
In ‘Where’s My Perry?,’ Perry is summoned into action by his boss, Major Monogram, but he gets trapped in the complicated network of tubes that typically lead him to the briefing room instead.
Using mechanics from the game that inspired it, the water streams are influenced by Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his ‘crazy-nators’ that can turn water into steam and ice on command.
At E3, Disney Interactive has announced that it has licensed the Disney/Pixar Brave property to Imangi Studios, developer for the popular freemium mobile game, ‘Temple Run.’ In the new game, set to be released on Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices on June 14, 2012, the player assumes the role of Merida who is chased by a bear. In addition to the standard game play, Merida can also show off her archery skills by shooting targets along the way.
Below is the official trailer for the game:
With E3 just around the corner, if we could ask Disney Mobile just one question, it would be ‘whatcha doooooo-in?’ But if we could ask Disney Mobile two questions, the first would be ‘whatcha dooooo-in?’ and the second would be ‘Hey, Where’s My Perry?’
We’re pretty sure both questions (and a whole lot more) will be answered next week, whether we ask them or not, so we’ll just use our handy cutoutthemiddleman-inator and offer up some possible evidence that a ‘Where’s My Water?’ and ‘Phineas and Ferb’ cross-over is about to surface.
It all began innocently enough with a tweet, as it usually does.
Earlier today, Disney/ABC Television Group’s Digital Media team released two new apps starring Disney Junior favorites, ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates’ (iOS Universal) and ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’ (iPad only), allowing the popular interactive shows to become even more engaging with their audiences.
Disney Interactive Studios has released this first-look featurette with Junction Point’s Warren Spector, Paul Weaver (Studio Director) and Chase Jones (Design Director) as they talk about their new title, ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ which features the ability to play as both Mickey and Oswald with ‘couch co-op.’
The team talks about conceiving the sequel to the Nintendo Wii game as well as bringing it to all platforms this time around. All in all, there isn’t too much that’s new here, but it does provide the opportunity to hear a bit of Oswald’s speaking part in the game’s opening cinematic in which he screams ‘earthquake!’ In the game, Oswald is voiced by legend of the genre, Frank Welker.
We have a bit of a round-up of recent news surrounding Disney/Pixar’s Brave all consolidated here for your enjoyment, thanks in part to bouts of extreme laziness.
First up is some more character concept art courtesy of Walt Disney Studios and Pixar, here of King Fergus, Queen Elinor and the triplets: Harris, Hubert and Hamish. The new concept art has been added to the beginning of our gallery below:
Next up is a commercial parody titled ‘KILT – by Ruff McLauren,’ which dares ask the question if you are ‘brave enough to wear one.’ It debuted on iTunes yesterday and is brought to us today by Walt Disney Studios UK.
When on site and at an eligible film, the app allows access to bonus content, allows users to compete in trivia games against other FilmPulse users at the theater, offers savings opportunities, gifts such as free popcorn and more.
