The D23 Expo will see a significant presence from Disney Interactive as they bring video games from partners and their own internal studios to the show.
Fans at the show can get their hands on Star Wars: Battlefront from EA's DICE Studios, play Bandai Namco's Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game, and get truly interactive with Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. At the Disney Interactive pavilion, Infinity fans can't just play with the newest version of the game, they can take the place of their favorite toys through an augmented reality experience and put themselves in the game.
The first two Star Wars play sets for Disney Infinity 3.0, as well as the Inside Out play set, will be playable on the show floor. There will be giveaways and other new 3.0 figures to play with ahead of the August 30, 2015 release, as well.
Sunday, August 16 at 11am PDT will also see the D23 Presentation of Disney Interactive. There, they'll discuss the above games, plus Kingdom Hearts III from Square Enix, which brings the worlds of Disney and their own popular franchises (like various Final Fantasy characters) together. The press release promises new information about the latter game, an "in-depth look" at Battlefront, and a showcase of Infinity 3.0.
