Disney Interactive and Marvel today launched Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes for the PlayStation4, PlayStation3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and WiiU.
The Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack features the 2.0 game software, the Disney Infinity 2.0 Base, Marvel’s The Avengers Play Set with Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor figurese, two Toy Box Game Discs, a web code card and the all-new Toy Box 2.0. Marvel’s Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy Play Sets, plus other Marvel character figures, will be sold separately. All characters and Power Discs from last year’s release of Disney Infinity are compatible with the new Toy Box 2.0.
“With the launch of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition), we’re delivering fresh storylines - for some of Marvel’s most iconic characters - to one of the biggest video game franchises on the market,” said Peter Phillips, EVP and General Manager, Interactive & Digital Distribution at Marvel Entertainment. “This is one of the most important game launches in Marvel history, and we believe that fans and collectors of all ages will be wowed by the experience.”
Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes introduces character figures from the Marvel universe with original Play Set storylines written with the help of award-winning Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis. Each new character has their own unique powers and gameplay mechanics, such as flying, web slinging, wall crawling, wall smashing and more.
An improved Toy Box 2.0 mode makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and games with family and friends using their favorite Marvel and Disney characters, vehicles, settings and items. New and enhanced Toy Box tools and toys will make the game mode more accessible for players of all ages. Toy Box Game Discs deliver new structured gameplay modes to the Toy Box where players can engage in classic Dungeon Crawler and Tower Defense gameplay using any character from across the Disney Infinity universe.
“For the 2.0 version of Disney Infinity, we’ve re-tooled nearly every aspect of the game to ensure it matched the epic expectations of Marvel Super Hero fans around the world,” said John Blackburn, SVP and General Manager of Avalanche Software. “Whether they’re playing with the entirely new character skills and combat systems, exploring Play Sets four times larger than the original version, or building worlds in the new Toy Box, we hope fans will be blown away by the evolution of Disney Infinity.”
