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.

At the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Microsoft released new details on the upcoming Xbox Kinect title, ‘Kinect Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure.’ Using KinectScan technology, players can scan themselves into the game and create a unique, custom avatar to enjoy the game. A new trailer for the game (below) was also released demonstrating how the KinectScan will be integrated into gameplay.
Based on several popular Disney/Pixar films (Up, Toy Story, The Incredible, Cars and Ratatouille), ‘Kinect Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure’ allows gamers to use both their bodies and their voice to solve play games and solve puzzles. A unique co-op play option will allow gamers to play with friends or to team up directly with one of the Disney/Pixar characters.
Only a month after its release, and just in time for the holidays, Amazon.com is now offering the top-selling and well-reviewed ‘Kinect Disneyland Adventures‘ for Microsoft Xbox with Kinect for just $24.99, representing a savings of 50% off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
Harnessing the controller-free magic of Kinect for Xbox 360, Kinect: Disneyland Adventures will allow children and Disney fans of all ages to explore Disneyland park, enjoy immersive adventures based on popular attractions, engage in challenging quests, and interact with beloved Disney characters using their full bodies and voices, no controller required. Kinect: Disneyland Adventures is your ticket to the magical world of Disneyland through Kinect, right in your living room.
Following up on the success of their latest Disney title, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, Microsoft today announced Kinect Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure is coming to the Microsoft Xbox 360 with Kinect and will be available on March 20, 2012.
Kinect Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure is described as an exciting racing adventure game and invites families and fans of all ages to experience the worlds of five beloved Disney/Pixar films like never before. Through the magic of Kinect for Xbox 360, families are invited to become part of one of five Disney/Pixar worlds and team up with characters from The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Up, Cars and Toy Story to race against time and solve time-based challenges without setting foot (or wheel) out of the living room.
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.
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!
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.
The trailer features a family as they transition from the Disneyland theme park to their living room, virtually experiencing the park as they meet & greet with Snow White and Mickey Mouse and play mini-games inside iconic attractions such as Peter Pan’s Flight, the Matterhorn and Pirates of the Caribbean, all to the tune of the Fantasmic! theme.
Below is our gallery of stills from the game which we have previously shared:
