On the final day of the 2015 D23 Expo, Disney Interactive revealed new details about Disney Infinity 3.0. Their presentation had a few surprises including John Boyega and Daisy Ridley (in the photo below), co-stars of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens film. They were on hand and gave away their character figures, Finn and Rey, for the upcoming Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Play Set that will launch at the end of August in North America.
There were a number of very interesting Marvel related announcements including some new details about the upcoming Marvel Play Set. For starters, we now have an official name for the new Play Set: “Marvel Battlegrounds,” and we now know that it will feature the first four-player local co-op available in-game. It will launch in Spring 2016. Continuing with Marvel related information, fans were given a closer look at Marvel’s Hulkbuster and Ultron characters that will be available late this year (November).
Additional character reveals included Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming film “Zootopia,” Spot from Disney•Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur.” “Zootopia” and “The Good Dinosaur” themed Power Disc Packs will also be available. Some completely different characters were announced as well as a limited edition set of Light FX Star Wars character figures that do just what you might expect — they light up when placed onto the Disney Infinity Base. Figures include Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from “Star Wars Rise Against the Empire” Play Set, as well as Anakin Skywalker, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi from “Star Wars Twilight of the Republic” Play Set and Kanan Jarrus from “Star Wars Rebels.”
There were also a few announcements for Disney Infinity as it relates to cool new unlockables that are exclusive to the theme park and cruise lines. Walt Disney World guests will be given exclusive access to the “Disney Partners Statue,” a Toy Box item that can only be unlocked with Walt Disney World’s Magic Band. For cruise ships, kids will be able to visit a new Disney Infinity dedicated space featuring Toy Box elements at Disney’s Oceaneer Club on board the Disney Dream ship. This will be starting in late October. There are also going to be in-game unlockables exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, such as the Disney Dream Ship Toy, who own an Oceaneer Band.
There was one last piece of interesting information related to Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition’s ultimate unlock that was unveiled during the presentation. Players who unlock all of the Disney Infinity figures that are located in the Disney Infinity “Hall of Heroes” will unlock the Keyblade from the SQUARE ENIX® KINGDOM HEARTS franchise.
Quite a number of great announcements about Disney Infinity 3.0 — August 30th can’t get here fast enough!
