The months-long question ‘am I a man or am I a Muppet?’ has finally been answered and it’s a resounding BOTH! It’s time to Muppet Up in ‘Disney Universe’ for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as Disney Interactive Studios has released the much anticipated Muppets downloadable content (DLC) pack on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
What an unexpected surprise! And by unexpected, I mean completely expected! Okay, not really. Disney Interactive Studios today announced that Danville and several of its citizens are now available as a Downloadable Content (DLC) package for ‘Disney Universe’ on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
Players can now suit up as Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Agent P or Dr. Doofenshmirtz and explore Danville using all new gadgets such as the Chick-Inator which can turn players into chickens in order to access small spaces, while the Atomic Leaf Blow-Inator will allow them to blow away piles of leaves to reveal collectibles and more as they advance through the neighborhood avoiding traps and hazards. The level will culminate as players battle Dr. Doofenshmirtz in an epic showdown to bring down his blimp and save a trapped passenger.
Disney Interactive Studios today announced that it has released a new downloadable content (DLC) pack for ‘Disney Universe’ featuring characters from the Walt Disney classic, The Jungle Book. Players on Microsoft Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 can now suit up with characters such as Mowgli, Shere Khan, King Louie, Bagheera and a baby elephant. Each costume is $.99 on PlayStation Network and 80 Microsoft points on MSN Live or the complete set is available for $2.99 and 240 Microsoft points on the respective console.
The Jungle Book joins previously released packs such as Nightmare Before Christmas and Disney Villains. In addition, a Muppets pack is expected to be released in March.
Those poor, unfortunate souls. That is how you describe anyone who doesn’t yet own their own copy of ‘Disney Universe‘ for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and/or Sony PlayStation 3.
Less than a month since its release, Disney Interactive Studios has released its first downloadable content (DLC) for the game: a villains pack featuring five costumes of some of Disney’s most beloved villains throughout the year. Now gamers can suit up as Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations, Hades from Hercules, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, the Wicked Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and, the villains that all villains fear, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.
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.
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. Every day of the D23 Expo, taking place August 19-21, 2011 at the Anaheim Convention Center, will be packed with hours of game play, special guests, interactive art contests, giveaways and more!
Guests of the D23 Expo will be able to suit up, power up and team up as they enter Disney Universe, a multiplayer action-adventure video game set in a mix-up of Disney and Disney/Pixar inspired worlds that will be released this fall.
The video goes into the world of Wall-E, one of six that will ship with the game, with more to become available via downloadable content on the Xbox and PlayStation 3 platforms. We also get to see one of the players dressed in the Wall-E costume along with a sighting of Buy-N-Large in gameplay.
