Disney Announce Skylanders Type Game Called Disney Infinity That Uses Player Creativity [Updated] Now With A Trailer

Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool

Disney Infinity is something you are going to start hearing a lot about. Especially if you are a parent.

Stich Kingdom reported that Disney and Avalanche Software took over the El Capitan Theatre to announce their new video game project called Disney Infinity. In the ilk of Skylanders, Disney Infinity is a new game that will utilise a ‘Disney Infinity reader’ to process physical toys into the game that the player can then interact with.

Through the ‘toybox’ mode, players will be able to have characters from Disney and Pixar’s back catalogue interact with a world they create. In addition to that, players will be able to unlock ‘play set’ mode that will allow them to explore the worlds of their favorite Disney movies and play through some of the classic storylines.

The game puts emphasis on player creativity, and as Disney Interactive’s co-president John Pleasants explains:

Disney Infinity is not a single game… It’s up to you to unlock the heart and soul of Disney Infinity.

John  Lasseter was also in attendence and added:

This is one of the most creative things in the interactive world that I’ve ever seen

That is a bold claim. But then again, Lasseter is no chump when ti comes to these things.

The game seems to use a token system that will allow the player to unlock new attributes and locations. If you decide to give in and buy Disney Infinity, you would get Sully, Mr. Incredible and Jack Sparrow characters as starters as well as the Monsters University ‘”landmark token”. 

Cars sets will also be available on release with The Lone Ranger, Phineas and Ferb and Toy Story in Space sets not far after release.

To quench your thirst for more on this new interactive Disney universe, here are some photos to illustrate more.

Update: And here is a trailer better showcasing the functions of the game.
