Disney Infinity 2.0's Intro Reminds Us It's Not All Marvel

Disney Infinity 2.0's Intro Reminds Us It's Not All Marvel

Tuesday's North American release of Disney Infinity 2.0 is all about Marvel Comics' finest, but the intro movie is totally Disney.

A showcase for upcoming classic Disney characters like Aladdin, Donald Duck, Tinkerbell and Brave's Merida was not what I was expecting when I first booted up the PlayStation 4 version of Infinity 2.0, but that's just because I had just spent the past half hour releasing Marvel figures from their plastic prisons. In retrospect it's exactly what I should have expected -- the original game began with an intro/tutorial featuring characters that weren't available at launch as well.

Yes, it's an in-game ad. It's a darn effective in-game ad. I didn't want it to end, and when it was all over there was a moment -- a very brief moment -- when I resented Iron Man, Captain America and Thor for not being Stitch, Donald and Tink.

But no worries. The Disney-proper characters should start showing up on shelves later this fall, along with November 4's Toy Box Starter Pack.

    I've gotta admit, the playable intro part of the first Disney Infinity is one of my favourite gaming moments of the last year.

    This game is much better than the first. Grabbed it on Wii U instead of ps4 for the gamepad integration and its great.

    I'm waiting for the Disney pack.

      15 dollars less and you get half the game and only 2 figures. Not much of a bargain. Better off going to Kmart and buying the full game for 68 dollars.

        Wasn't so much more that I want the Disney characters more. :P I own all the Disney stuff in 1.0, wasn't doing it to save more money. Just what I wanted from the game was in a different pack haha
