If you follow our site, you know how much we love Disney Infinity. We play it regularly and look forward to each and every character release. Today was a particularly exciting day with the news that Disney Interactive has added the Star Wars universe to the latest installment Disney Infinity 3.0. The new Star Wars characters will join other amazing characters from Marvel, Pixar and Disney.
We know a few details about some of the Play Sets. The first, called Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set takes place when the Jedi’s were plentiful in numbers and powers. Players will have the ability to use the Force and the weapon of the Jedi’s, a Lightsaber. Characters from this set include Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Darth Maul. Star Wars: Rise Against the Empire Play Set will include Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader. In this Play Set, you’ll have the ability to pilot X-wing fighters or the Millennium Falcon to fight stormtroopers, or explore land-based missions on planets like Tatooine, Hoth, and Endor. And, if you are wondering, you will have the ability to use all of the characters in all of the sets with one another. That way, you can play with all of the Star Wars characters in all of the Star Wars Play Sets. Very cool!
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack will include the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Base and video game software, the Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices. Other Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Play Sets, figures, and Toy Box Expansion Games will be sold separately.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will also offer some additional Play Sets including a Disney•Pixar Play Set based on the upcoming film Inside Out, and a Marvel Play Set featuring Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, and other Marvel characters. It will also have a fully enhanced Toy Box with two new multiplayer Toy Box Expansion Games, Toy Box Speedway (kart racing) and Toy Box Takeover (action-adventure). There will be plenty of new figures of fan-favorite characters from across the entire Walt Disney Company such as Mickey and Minnie, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron: Legacy, Mulan and Olaf, among many others.
Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition has an interesting new feature as well with the introduction of an all-new 3-D Toy Box Hub. This will make it easier for players to choose from a wider selection of gameplay experiences, which include platform, racing, and farming simulation games. There will be two new multiplayer Toy Box Expansion Games that provide action-adventure gameplay in Toy Box Takeover and kart racing in Toy Box Speedway, where kids and families can play with popular Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters together in a structured setting.
It’s also important to know that all figures and Power Discs from the 1.0 and 2.0 editions of Disney Infinity will be compatible with Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition in the enhanced Toy Box. Lastly, and for the very first time, Power Discs will be sold in labeled franchise-specific packs of four. We’ll keep you updated with the great new additions from Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars figures and Play Sets that will be announced in the coming months.
