This post is brought to you by Disney.
Disney, Star Wars and Marvel Gamers all had reason to celebrate the announcements at D23 EXPO 2015!
You’re not tired of Star Wars news, are you? I hope not, because Star Wars loving gamers have some really cool things headed their way!
November 17th brings the launch of two limited edition Darth Vader-inspired PlayStation®4 Star Wars bundles: Star Wars: Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars. The bundles feature an image of Darth Vader on the console and a controller inspired by his suit!
John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, stars of Star Wars: The Force Awakens were gifted with their new Disney Infinity character figures, Finn and Rey, from the new 3.0 play set. They then surprised two young cosplaying guests in the audience with the figures!
We also got a peek at the Star Wars Battle Pod. This is the ultimate arcade experience for the Star Wars fan. You can currently check out the premium edition in two California locations. Or if you are the ultimate fan, order the home edition for yourself.
I already mentioned the cool Disney Infinity Star Wars news, but there’s so much more coming your way with 3.0! Nick Wilde and Judy Zootopia, Spot from The Good Dinosaur and a limited edition set of Light FX Star Wars character figures that light up when placed onto the Disney Infinity Base are all coming soon.
Disney Infinity also announced some amazing integrations with Walt Disney World, Disney Parks and Resorts and Disney Cruise Line. Gamers will be given access to an exclusive “Disney Partners Statue,” a Toy Box item that can only be unlocked with Walt Disney World’s Magic Band. Starting in late October 2015, kids will be able to visit the very first Disney Infinity space on Disney’s Oceaneer Club on board the Disney Dream ship. The space will feature Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition game kiosks and interactive experiences. There will be exclusive in-game unlockables for guests who own an Oceaneer Band, including the Disney Dream Ship Toy. They’ll also be able to play custom Toy Boxes created by the Disney Infinity team and community members, such as the Castaway Cay Toy Box.
Everyone at the presentation received a special Kingdom Hearts Mickey Costume Power Disc that unlocks a one-of-a-kind costume of King Mickey, Keyblade Master and King of Disney Castle for Disney Infinity’s Mickey Mouse character and a classic Mickey Mouse figure! This Power Disc will never be released to the public.
We got another great look at the Playmation gear coming your way this fall! Check out my exclusive Playmation preview coverage.
Kingdom Hearts fans rejoice! Baymax and others from Big Hero 6 will make their debut in Kingdom Hears III! Kingdom Hearts III will be available for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One®.
Disney Magic Kingdoms
Disney Magic Kingdoms is soon to be my new favorite mobile game. Launching later this year, Disney Magic Kingdoms allows you to build the Disney theme park of your dreams. You can recreate your favorite attractions like Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion, California Screamin’ and more in a fun, animated landscape. You’ll interact with characters such as Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear and Mike Wazowski while facing quests to save your park from villains like Maleficent, Emperor Zurg and Mother Gothel.
Look for updates on the Gameloft Facebook page.
