Nintendo of America and Disney Interactive have announced that they will be holding a launch event for ‘Disney Magical World‘ for the Nintendo 3DS at Nintendo’s Nintendo World in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. The event, which will feature ‘Dog with a Blog’ star G Hannelius, will take place on Saturday, April 12 from 12 pm – 3 pm.
Parents, hide your vases and horse statues, you are about to receive a midi-chlorian infestation of the highest order. Just published today is a US Patent application titled ‘Immersive Storytelling Environment’ (US20140080109) and it’s a pretty amazing read. While the Disney buzzwords STORY and IMMERSIVE are generally reserved for the Disney theme parks, it appears as though Walt Disney Imagineering is now aiming for the home market.
It’s deceptively simple. It’s deceptively hard. And it’s blatantly addictive. It is ‘Lost Light,’ the newest mobile app game from Disney Interactive and Creature Feep, the studio behind ‘Where’s My Water?’ and other original properties for Disney, now available for Apple iOS and Android devices.
The third and final wave of power discs for the first generation of ‘Disney Infinity’ will be released on April 1, 2014, the same day that the ‘Phineas & Ferb’ Toybox Set is scheduled to be released. This news comes via a new listing for the blind packs on DisneyStore.com.
The third series will consist of just fifteen discs rather than the usual twenty as five of the 10 discs sold by Toys ‘R’ Us will in fact remain exclusive to them. The discs are expected to include: Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat, Violet’s Force Field, Rapunzel’s Healing, Chernabog’s Power, Wall-E’s Fire Extinguisher, Toy Story Mania Blaster, Dragon Firework Cannon, Tantor, Phillipe, Angus, Dr. Calico’s Helicopter, Cruella De Vil’s Car, Wall-E’s Collection, Buy n Large Atmosphere and Disney Parks Parking Lot Tram.
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. Because of the game’s nature, the opportunity is offered to anyone who is deemed eligible regardless of geographic location. All that is needed to be considered is an eligible mobile device and a commitment to play at least 30 minutes between the dates of January 21 and February 11.
As an incentive, Disney will be providing each selected participant with a $20 Visa gift card upon completion of the playtest.
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.
