WATCH: Disney Teases ‘Magic Kingdoms’ Mobile Game, Offers Exclusive Pre-In-Game Rewards

Disney Interactive and Gameloft have released a teaser trailer for ‘Disney Magic Kingdoms,’ a mobile experience coming soon to Apple iOS, Android and Windows handheld devices. First announced at Disney D23 Expo last year, the game allows players to incorporate Disney theme park attractions and experiences from around the world to create their own personalized theme park. As play progresses, a story begins to emerge which plots Disney villains against the player who can team up with Disney heroes for control of the park — not unlike Ridley Pearson’s Kingdom Keepers series.

Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ Augmented Reality Game Now Available for Download

Disney's 'Mayhem at the Mansion' AR GameConfirming an earlier report by Stitch Kingdom, although the game has not yet been officially announced by Disney Parks and Resorts, the iOS version of Disney’s ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ is now available as a free download from the iTunes App Store.

As we previously pointed out, the idea behind the augmented reality game is to go to certain locations marked on the Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party event map, find one of the hitchhiking ghosts who have escaped from the Haunted Mansion and capture them using the ‘spectre collector’ in the app. Interactions can be saved and shared before returning the ghost to his rightful place back at the Haunted Mansion.
