Amazon has begun listing what it refers to as the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Premium Value Pack for all consoles at launch for the price of $119.99. In addition to the starter pack featuring the Avengers play set, figures and toy box game discs, the bundle also includes the Spider-Man play set, Captain America figure, Venom figure and Rocket Raccoon figure (as a reminder, Rocket Raccoon is playable inside the Avengers play set once enough tokens are collected during regular game play) as well as a Marvel power disc blind pack.
Disney Interactive today announced that Donald Duck will be the next of the Disney Originals characters to appear as a Toy Box playable in Disney Infinity 2.0. Donald joins other Disney and Pixar characters recently announced for the second generation of ‘Disney Infinity 2.0,’ such as Merida, Maleficent, Stitch, Tinker Bell, Aladdin and Jasmine.
Unbelievable sights, indescribable feelings — both of these descriptors could easily apply to ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ from everything we’ve seen so far, but now Disney Interactive has introduced a whole new wave of Toy Box playables: Aladdin and Jasmine.
With a scimitar and a magic lamp at his disposal, Aladdin’s (available fall 2014) brand of action is the answer to all your ‘Disney Infinity’ Toy Box 2.0 wishes. You’ll want to seek out this diamond in the rough. A proven fan favorite, Aladdin has consistently been one of the most requested characters since Disney Infinity was released last year.
During the Marvel Games Panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Disney Interactive unveiled the first set of Marvel Villains playable characters to be part of the second wave of the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ roll-out: Ronan the Accuser from Guardians of the Galaxy, Green Goblin from Spider-Man and the infamous Loki, God of Mischief from The Avengers. Whether it’s flexing their unstoppable powers for all things evil in their respective Play Sets, the updated Toy Box 2.0, or the newly added structured Toy Box Games, these Super Villains are forces to be reckoned with.
This time around with ‘Disney Infinity 2.0,’ I have been blessed with the opportunity to preview the game several times over the past couple of months and this past week at San Diego Comic-Con I had the additional pleasure of checking it out every day of the con that the pop-up shop was open, including the special Disney D23 event with Alex Hirsch of ‘Gravity Falls.’ I also had the larger pleasure of talking with a few of the folks on the development team and gained additional insight into the game.
At San Diego Comic-Con, Disney Interactive today announced the next chapter in its upcoming ‘Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)’ — the Guardians of the Galaxy play set, inspired by the Marvel film of the same name, in theaters on August 1, 2014.
The Guardians of the Galaxy play set follows Star-Lord and his fellow Guardians as they arrive at Knowhere, having just stolen a powerful cosmic object from the villainous Ronan the Accuser. Players will guide the team as they race to protect Knowhere from Ronan and his attacking Sakaaran fleet while keeping their newly liberated item safe from the villain’s evil grasp.
Just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Sony and Disney Interactive have revealed the first look and additional details for their exclusive ‘Disney Infinity 2.0’ Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 as well as a PlayStation 3 bundle.
As part of the third annual ‘Sweet Suite’ event held last night in New York City, I once again had the distinct pleasure to meet with ‘Disney Infinity’ executive producer John Vignocchi as I got a second recent look at the upcoming ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ title on the PS4 on an even newer build than the one I saw last month. Unfortunately I didn’t get any actual hands-on with the game this time around as the build is so recent, it contained items not yet officially announced so there’s nothing I can share in terms of that other than to prepare you to hold on to your seats firmly, especially as San Diego Comic-Con hits us next week.
Disney Interactive today announced that Stitch and Tinker Bell will join Merida and Maleficent as new Disney themed playable characters in the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ Toy Box to be released later this year. To celebrate the occasion, Disney Interactive has supplied us with high res images of the new figures as well as Toy Box screen shots featuring them at play.
The official character descriptions are as follows:
Stitch: The lovable ‘experiment 626’ from the popular Lilo & Stitch films comes to the ‘Disney Infinity’ Toy Box 2.0 along with his trusty cosmic blaster and the ability to super jump to galactic new heights.
At the Disney Consumer Products holiday preview event recently held in New York City, I was able to get some limited play time in on the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0’ Marvel Super Heroes edition ‘Spider-Man’ play set and toy box.
Overall the game play seems to be on par with — if not better than — the first generation. One particularly cool upgrade, however, is a ‘compass’ or ‘radar’ on the heads-up display which should be familiar to any casual gamer, which points out points of interest as well additional quest locations. Additionally, due to the size of the play set area, on-screen indicators pop up to indicate the distance to points of interest as you travel towards them.
