I am so excited about this. Disney Infinity announced today that what was referred to as Disney Infinity 2.0 will now be Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.
The official press release (see below) says that the new set will feature more than 20 Marvel figures and original storyline from comic writer, Brian Michael Bendis.
It will also include a new Toy Box mode that will make sharing levels and games easier and all of the power discs and figures from the first run of Disney Infinity will be compatible with Marvel Super Heroes.
“Disney Infinity was, from the start, built to be an interactive experience where players could bring together their favorite Disney characters and stories to create new Disney memories. With the introduction of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, we’re ushering in a new chapter of adventures, featuring a cast of the world’s most popular Super Heroes,” said Jimmy Pitaro, President of Disney Interactive. “Bringing popular and iconic Marvel characters to the Disney Infinity platform truly takes this game to the next level.”
Debuting with the game will be The Avengers themselves (Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye) as well as additional Play Sets and characters from other popular Marvel and Disney franchises (I noticed Stitch and Merida in the background of the trailer), which will be announced in the coming months. Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will be available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox, the WiiU (but not the Wii this time which means I’ll be upgrading before the Fall), PC and iOS tablets and smart phones.
