Disney reveals Disney Infinity and prepares to make a ton of money
Skylanders has been an incredible success story for Activision and video games in general. It was only a matter of time before another company took that idea and ran with it. Enter Disney Infinity, a new multi-platform game bringing together characters from both Disney and Pixar universes.
Scheduled for a June release, the game will boast 40 collectable toys (17 which are characters) that will add to a users overall experience. Characters will be customizable and Disney will also sell Disney Infinity Power Discs to give characters “unique powers, customizations and gadgets”.
Avalanche Software is developing the game, but as Disney rep John Pleasants notes, "Disney Infinity is not a single game". Disney obviously wants this to be a platform for their action figures and play sets that can be used on consoles, mobile games, and in browsers. The “platform” will launch with three play sets from the worlds of The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., and Pirates of the Caribbean. Enjoy the trailer.
