A yearly trade show called the American International Toy Fair kicked off last week in Manhattan, and yesterday, Disney unveiled a few new images from its upcoming game, Disney Infinity. The new toys on display focused on the upcoming film Monsters University, Disney-Pixar’s prequel to Monsters, Inc.
Disney Infinity is a sort of hybrid between toys and video games, where players use a real-world toy version of their favorite Disney characters and place it onto a device called an Infinity Base. This will create a virtual version of the character and transport them into virtual representations of Monsters University, the Incredibles and Pirates of the Caribbean. There is also a “Toy Box” mode where they can play in a virtual Toy Box to create their own Disney experiences.
Take a peek at this video from Disney Living of John Lasseter:
