D23 always brings in fascinating news for fans of all things Disney. While not EVERYTHING is revealed to the public, the announcements most commonly are. And you know me... I will find out about any Disney Infinity announcements. And boy, do we have some today.
They kicked it all off with the most perfect of introductions... A 2 minute montage of the game, from 1.0 to 3.0. It also included clips of the community reacting. Let's just say I cried quite a bit. But more on my history with the game later...
Next up, the Twilight of the Republic (Starter Pack Play Set) trailer debuted. Although I'm more excited for Rise Against the Empire, this trailer was better than that of Empire. More story, more action. Still, though, go Rise Against the Empire!
After that, they FINALLY gave us information on the Marvel Play Set! I know, right? I thought that would never come! Anyway, they confirmed that it would be titled Marvel Battlegrounds, a pretty intriguing title in my perspective. Also, they announced the ability to simultaneously play 4 player in Battlegrounds, something that a Play Set has never done before.
I know what you're thinking. "What about the 3 characters and the Board-Picked one?" Right now...
First off, the Master Board-Picked figure was confirmed to be none other than Peter Pan! Although no screenshots appeared, he was announced to be released 'sometime next year'.
They also confirmed that Spot, from the upcoming Good Dinosaur film, would join the Disney side of things. A Good Dinosaur Power Disc pack will accompany him (sold seperately), giving players the ability to place dinos down as mounts! So cool! Plus, Spot's figure was shown!
Who else? Nick and Judy from Disney's upcoming Zootopia! No info on them, although we got an image of their figures!
The ultimate unlock is the Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts. I don't play that game, but I know a lot of people will be excited for that one! (I'm not saying I dislike it, I just haven't played it yet. I here it's fun, though. :)
What did the audience get? A Mickey figure that included an exclusive Kingdom Hearts-themed costume change featuring King Mickey!
Then, Rey and Finn were announced/shown as part of the Force Awakens Play Set! AMAZING!!!
Also, the Magic Band unlock is outstanding! We now finally have the Walt and Mickey statue! I was crying there too! :)
Well, that's all that was announced today, but be sure to check back often for more Disney Infinity!
