Disney Interactive Studios has released this first-look featurette with Junction Point’s Warren Spector, Paul Weaver (Studio Director) and Chase Jones (Design Director) as they talk about their new title, ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ which features the ability to play as both Mickey and Oswald with ‘couch co-op.’
After what appears to be alligator years of anticipation and teases, Disney Interactive Studios will finally release its latest pack of puzzles for the paid version of ‘Where’s My Water?,’ ‘Caution to the Wind’ tomorrow. The upgrade, which remains free to those who have already purchased the $.99 app, adds fans to the mix which allows players to combine logic and the power of wind to control the streams of liquids throughout the sewers all in the name of getting mascot Swampy clean.
Swampy the Gator’s perpetual quest for a bath in Disney Interactive’s ‘Where’s My Water?’ app for Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch and Android devices caused some temperatures to rise yesterday as 20 new levels were introduced. The second update of its kind since the game’s release just a couple of months ago, ‘Boiling Point’ introduces the element of steam to the game along with new physics to tease players through the additional levels.
Disney Interactive Studios today announced that a free demo of Disney Universe, the first video game that brings together characters and worlds inspired by both animated and live-action films from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures, is now available as a free download on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network and PlayStation® Network.
Disney Universe offers a four-person multiplayer action experience, with frenzied gameplay that appeals to players of all ages. The game features 45 classic and contemporary iconic character costumes inspired by well-known and legendary properties, such as the Disney•Pixar hits WALL•E and Monsters, Inc., Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Academy Award® winning classics, The Lion King and Aladdin.
Disney Interactive and YouTube are joining forces to bring family-friendly video entertainment to the web. The alliance will bring together the leading provider of family-friendly entertainment with the Internet’s most popular destination for video programming.
Complementary online video destinations tailored to Disney audiences will be made available on both Disney.com and YouTube in early 2012, furthering Disney Interactive’s strategy to deliver the most relevant and immersive online experiences to its guests wherever they are.
Today we get our sixth and final look at the lands to explore in Disney Interactive’s ‘Disney Universe’ before it hits shelves on October 25 (available for pre-order for Xbox, PS3, Wii and PC), just in time for Halloween. The world of Aladdin joins previously viewed worlds Monsters, Inc., Wall-E, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King and Pirates of the Caribbean as the six worlds that will ship with the game, with more becoming available via Downloadable Content (DLC) for the Microsoft Xbox and PlayStation 3 editions.

In honor of International Talk Like A Pirates Day, we have a new video look at the ‘Pirates World’ portion of the upcoming Disney Interactive Studios title, ‘Disney Universe’ which will be available to own October 25 (and now available for pre-order from Amazon.com).
Although we had previously gotten a look at the Captain Jack Sparrow costume from the game’s box art, we also now get a look at the Angelica costume via the newly released screenshots from the playing level, with
hopefully more costumes to be released to us later today. We’ve now added costumes for Jack, Angelica, Mr. Gibbs, Blackbeard and Barbossa!
It appears Halloween has come a day early as new information for ‘Disney Universe’ from Disney Interactive Studios has surfaced today rather than the original anticipated date of August 18, otherwise known as Disney D23 Expo-eve. Although we expect to see more character costumes and screenshots within the next day or so, Disney has released a new gameplay trailer featuring The Lion King, one of six worlds that will come with the game initially, with more promised in the way of Downloadable Content on the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox platforms in the future. Other previously share worlds include Disney/Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. and WALL-E along with Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Disney Interactive Media Group (DIMG) invites Disney fans and families to step into its pavilion at the D23 Expo—The Ultimate Disney Fan Event—for hands-on fun with the latest interactive entertainment products for video game consoles, mobile devices and online, based on beloved Disney stories and characters.
