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.

In addition to the downloadable demo of the game, consumers who are interested in getting a first-hand look at Disney Universe can also visit a participating Best Buy store beginning December 12. Select store locations will have an Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system available for consumers to play the demo of the game.

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.
The gameplay trailer released today shows us some action in Agrabah as well as some of the newly available costumes such as Aladdin, Jasmine and Jafar, with screenshots also previewing Abu.
Below are our our character and screenshot galleries for the game. Although we have not yet received the Aladdin costumes from Disney Interactive yet, we will add them as soon as they become available to us.
Lastly, courtesy of Walt Disney Studios France, we have these short teasers for ‘Disney Universe’ featuring the worlds and costumes of Pirates of the Caribbean, Aladdin and Wall-E.
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.
We also have our first look at what would appear to be the official box art, courtesy of Amazon.com (now accepting pre-orders with a promised release date of October 31) which also gives us a look at the Captain Jack Sparrow and Jasmine costumes. In the video, we also catch a player dressed as Rafiki (who provides us with a little humor, using the character battling feature).
The game will be on display at Disney D23 Expo, which runs this weekend, August 19-21, at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Included below is our character and screenshot galleries for the game which now includes The Lion King costumes for Scar, Rafiki, Simba, Timon and Pumbaa.
