Just ahead of E3, we have received confirmation of something we have been reporting for quite some time: a previously as-of-yet unannounced playset for ‘Disney Infinity,’ The Lone Ranger. Although we have been talking about the playset since before the original announcement, we last visited the possibility back in March, when the launch had been delayed until August. While most outlets focused on that its launch no longer coincided with the theatrical release of Monsters University, we also pointed out that it now releases after the theatrical debut of The Lone Ranger, which will now mean Disney Infinity will be relying on the success of the film rather than being a marketing tool for it.
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) recently awarded Kinect Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure for the Microsoft Xbox 360 with Kinect a rating of E (everyone) for cartoon violence.
According to the description provided with the rating, ‘as players run, jump, race, and fly through “cartoony” landscapes, they sometimes engage in skirmishes with nearby characters (e.g., rats throwing tomatoes at a chef; superheroes hurling projectiles at a giant robot); some of these sequences are accompanied by crashing sounds and impact effects. In one brief cutscene, a missile is depicted colliding with a helicopter, resulting in a colorful explosion.’
