Disney Interactive and Marvel Entertainment today confirmed that the world’s most iconic Super Heroes are assembling for ‘Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes’ – the 2.0 edition of the #1 best-selling new hybrid toy / video game of 2013, according to the NPD Group’s video games retail sales data.
‘Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes’ features more than 20 new interactive figures from across the Marvel universe, original storylines penned by award-wining Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis, and an all-new Toy Box mode that makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and mini-games with family and friends. In addition, all characters and power discs from last year’s release of Disney Infinity will be compatible with the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Toy Box.
The Avengers’ Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye will debut when the game launches this fall, along with additional Play Sets and characters from other popular Marvel and Disney franchises, which will be announced in the coming months. ‘Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes’ will be available for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the WiiU™ system from Nintendo, PC and iOS tablets and smart phones.
While all figures, toy boxes and power discs from the first generation will be compatible with ‘Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes,’ the new title is adding additional gameplay and mechanics into the toybox world. 80 new power discs will be made available, including new game power discs that unlock tower defense and dungeon-type mini-games that will take 3-4 hours to complete. New, character-specific moves will be introduced including a super jump move as well as a new skill tree system that players can build and customize each character. The toybox building system has also been simplified, introducing ‘brushes’ that allow players to instantly build scenarios such as a city, dungeon, etc.
