About Disney Infinity
Watch the official announcement trailer…
The characters, power discs and Play Set pieces will work on a device called the “Disney Infinity Base”. This will activate the world, which they are calling “Play Sets”. Which Disney worlds you ask? As of right now, in June they will feature worlds from “Monsters University,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “The Incredibles.” If you watched the video, you also saw Buzz Lightyear, Perry the Platypus and Cars.
In each “Play Set”, you will take on the role of the different characters by battling enemies, solving puzzles, overcoming obstacles and more fun adventures.
As you advance through each “Play Set”, you can collect characters, vehicles, upgrades, gadgets and more and save them to your virtual “Toy Box.” You can access your “Toy Box” at anytime to gain access to these items.
Have a look at some of the interactive figures.
“Disney Infinity introduces a new way to interact with the best of Disney on one game platform, both now and in the future,” said John Pleasants, co-president, Disney Interactive. “With this innovative approach to gaming, Disney Infinity will bring to life new characters, stories and environments from The Walt Disney Company over time in a way that will delight fans and gamers alike.”
