Disney has just released a brand new trailer for their upcoming game Disney Infinity, which will be released on the Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo 3DS, PS Vita, and PC on August 18. The game will allow players to enjoy games set in a wide variety of settings and featuring popular characters from Disney’s rich library of films and shows, including settings and characters from Pixar (which is part of Disney now, in case you’ve been living under a rock.)
Disney Infinity will use actual collectible character figures that come to life in the game via the Infinity Base Reader, providing experiences that are true to the franchises that they came from (similar to the Skylanders game.) There’s also a feature that allows characters from various Disney and Pixar films to play together in a virtual “Toy Box.”
The PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, and Wii U ports of Disney Infinity will be identical (barring minor differences resulting from each console’s capabilities), but there are no plans for cross-platform multiplayer at this point. The PC version will use codes that are purchased online instead of the Infinity Base Reader, the figurines, and discs.
