Disney Interactive has issued a notice that it is seeking males and females of 18 years of age and older to participate in a playtest for a new mobile game currently being developed.

Earlier today, Nintendo America announced its initial plans for its Nintendo 3DS portable gaming platform for 2014. Among the titles announced is ‘Disney Magical World’ which is slated to be available both in-store as well as through the Nintendo eShop beginning April 11.
According to Nintendo, ‘Disney Magical World’ is a new game featuring dozens of Disney characters in a variety of Disney-themed worlds. Players can customize their characters with hundreds of Disney-themed outfits and accessories, all while managing a café, planting crops and collecting Disney character cards. Players help different characters solve problems or find missing items.
Much as it did with the Blu-ray release of Monsters University, bundling either a Mike Wazowski or Randall Boggs ‘Disney Infinity’ figure along with the 2D version of the film, Walmart has announced it will do the same with Frozen when it releases on March 18, 2014. Although no image is currently available (see the Monsters University items as a sample), separate listings for pre-orders have been put up for both Anna and Elsa.
Earlier today, we shared official release dates for several upcoming ‘Disney Infinity’ figures including Phineas, Agent P, Sorcerer Mickey and others that had previously been sold as exclusives at various retailers.
However, while most retailers will have to wait until April 1, 2014 to sell the ‘Phineas and Ferb’ Toy Box Pack, GameStop has announced it will be selling the pack exclusively beginning March 14, 2014. The toy box pack (pictured here) features both the Phineas and Agent P (/aka/ Perry the Platypus) figures as well as the ‘Phineas and Ferb’ texture set and skydome power discs.

It’s probably not too hard to imagine that one of the most popular questions constantly being posed to Disney’s Avalanche Software, developer of ‘Disney Infinity’ is if and when Marvel or Star Wars will be introduced as playables. While it just wasn’t likely Lucasfilm properties would find their way into the first generation of the gaming platform simply because of the timing, the potential for tapping into Marvel was there — as it is, Marvel does actually have a known presence in the game in the form of the Incredible Hulk townsperson costume.
