Disney Infnity Loki FigureThis time around with ‘Disney Infinity 2.0,’ I have been blessed with the opportunity to preview the game several times over the past couple of months and this past week at San Diego Comic-Con I had the additional pleasure of checking it out every day of the con that the pop-up shop was open, including the special Disney D23 event with Alex Hirsch of ‘Gravity Falls.’ I also had the larger pleasure of talking with a few of the folks on the development team and gained additional insight into the game.

SDCC: ‘Disney Infinity 2.0′ Hands-On Report, Part 2; Comic-Con Events

tink_and_stitch

As part of the third annual ‘Sweet Suite’ event held last night in New York City, I once again had the distinct pleasure to meet with ‘Disney Infinity’ executive producer John Vignocchi as I got a second recent look at the upcoming ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ title on the PS4 on an even newer build than the one I saw last month. Unfortunately I didn’t get any actual hands-on with the game this time around as the build is so recent, it contained items not yet officially announced so there’s nothing I can share in terms of that other than to prepare you to hold on to your seats firmly, especially as San Diego Comic-Con hits us next week.

REPORT: ‘Disney Infinity’ Marvel Super Heroes Hands-On and News

Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy BoxAt the Disney Consumer Products holiday preview event recently held in New York City, I was able to get some limited play time in on the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0′ Marvel Super Heroes edition ‘Spider-Man’ play set and toy box.

Overall the game play seems to be on par with — if not better than — the first generation. One particularly cool upgrade, however, is a ‘compass’ or ‘radar’ on the heads-up display which should be familiar to any casual gamer, which points out points of interest as well additional quest locations. Additionally, due to the size of the play set area, on-screen indicators pop up to indicate the distance to points of interest as you travel towards them.
