Teased since the release of 2.0 last year and officially revealed via Game Informer’s June cover story, Disney Infinity adds Star Wars characters to the toys-meet-games mix.
While the inclusion of Star Wars characters comes as no real surprise, the variety is pretty impressive. We’ve got the original trilogy, the prequels, some Clone Wars characters in there. Could we see a Rebels expansion, and new toys for the release of The Force Awakens later this year? Probably not, because Disney hates making money.
Along with the frankly adorable Star Wars figures, Disney Infinity 3.0 will continue to plumb Disney franchises (those Tron figures that were released digitally earlier this year are becoming a reality) and Marvel for new opportunities for adventure — see Ultron and the Hulkbuster armour on the cover.
The Game Informer article details some of the polish coming to the third instalment of the series as well, most importantly a heightened focus on gameplay, an element the previous games have stumbled over. With Ninja Theory returning to polish combat and driving being tweaked by Sumo Digital of Sonic All-Stars Racing fame, expect more playing and less wandering about the creative Toy Box halfheartedly placing scenery.
