Disney has officially launched the third edition of its immensely popular hybrid toy/game now dubbed Disney Infinity 3.0 which adds a slew of awesome characters from the epic Star Wars saga, Pixar’s Inside Out, as well as adding more characters from the Marvel universe.
“Disney Infinity is the only game where fans can play with Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars characters together in one experience,” said James Pitaro, President, Disney Interactive. “We worked closely with Lucasfilm to deliver an authentic Star Wars game experience, featuring some of the most iconic stories and characters from the past, present, and future.”
The launch of Disney Infinity 3.0 introduces three new Star Wars Play Sets based on the saga’s three major timelines specifically the Twilight of the Republic Play Set which is set in the timeline of Star Wars Episodes I to III, the Rise Against the Empire Play Set based on Episodes IV to VI, and the third Play Set based on the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.
Disney is also releasing a new Play Set based on the Disney-Pixar movie Inside Out; a new Marvel Play Set featuring Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, and other Marvel characters; and a host of new figures of characters from across Disney’s franchises including Mickey and Minnie, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron: Legacy, Mulan and Olaf, and more.
“Star Wars is a cross-generational franchise, and Disney Infinity 3.0 creates an incredible opportunity for families and fans to relive their favorite Star Wars moments,” said John Blackburn, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Infinity. “With the addition of Star Wars, Inside Out, and new Disney and Marvel characters, Disney Infinity 3.0 will be the most ambitious and diverse offering yet and also the most accessible.”
Disney Infinity 3.0 also brings with it a new Toy Box Hub which players can build, customize, and explore. The Play Box Hub introduces new gameplay elements and activities including two games called Toy Box Speedway and Toy Box Takeover. The Toy Box Hub also features special “venues” including Flynn’s Arcade where players can play with other Disney Infinity 3.0 players online and El Capitan which allows players to view Toy Box TV episodes and other player’s Toy Boxes.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will initially be available through the Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack which includes the new Disney Infinity 3.0 base and video game software, the Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set, Ashsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices. The Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack is already available and is priced at Php2,999.00.
Additional figures and power discs are also now available including figures of Star Wars characters Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, characters from Star Wars Rebels such as Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Zeb Orrelios, the Disney-Pixar Inside Out Play Set which includes Joy and Anger figures, additional Inside Out figures of Sadness, Disgust, and Fear, and figures of Disney characters Mickey, Minnie, Mulan, Olaf, Sam Flynn, and Quorra.
