Disney announced Disney Infinity today, after many a rumor popped up over the last few months, as a multiplatform title featuring Pixar and Disney characters running around the place.

Currently in development at Avalanche Software, the game makes use of interactive AR toys which can be inserted into the sandbox game, much like Skylanders Giants.

The initial set of toys will number 40 with 17 character figures along with Disney Infinity Power Discs which can be used to power the playable characters up and provide more customization and abilities. Players can also created their own worlds using Toy Box Mode.

Here’s a list of features culled from the press release:

  • Disney Infinity Interactive Pieces – Initially a line of 40 collectible interactive pieces will be introduced that allow players to expand and customize their play experiences.
  • Disney Infinity Interactive Character Figures – Seventeen character figures will allow players to experience a variety of their favorite characters in true to property experiences and in “Toy Box” mode.
  • Disney Infinity Base – When figures are placed on the Infinity base, they unlock the world and play experiences of Disney Infinity.
  • Disney Infinity Power Discs – Interactive discs can be placed on the Infinity base to power up characters and “Toy Box” with unique powers, customizations and gadgets.

Disney Infinity titles are in development for consoles, PC, and mobile and is slated for a June release. Trailers for both North America and the UK are below.

    Haha, I first thought it was Avalanche Studios (the developers behind the Just Cause games) that was making the game. It felt really weird. :P

    @1 It can be confusing. This is how I remember: Software = Disney; Studios = Just Cause.

    I don’t care what anyone says. I loved the hell of Skylanders and it was absolutely Toys for Bob at their best. Don’t know who Toys for Bob are? They’re the Star Control I & II guys (no, not III, let’s all quietly forget that III even exists). And I’m absolutely certain you’ve at least heard of those games.

    Plus, Star Control II was a large furry inspiration to me. (Heh heh heh.) Really, they were great games and had some of the best alien races I’d seen i just about anything, ever. They had something for everyone in ‘em, even hippie dodo bird things.

    And then there was Fwiffo. I miss games being as clever and charming…

    Where was I?

    Oh yes. Skylanders. Pretty great. Toys for Bob need to make more games, because to my knowledge they’ve never made a bad one. Anyone who hasn’t checked out Star Control II, it’s available freely and as a HD version known as the Ur-Quan Masters. Anyone who hasn’t checked out Skylanders? Yeah, it’s expensive, but you’re kind of missing out. It’s pretty great.

    This? This isn’t made by Toys for Bob, but if they were inspired by the right elements of Skylanders then it could be pretty great. Not too impressed by this first wave of characters, though. There’s much better to be found in the Disney stable. (Timon & Pumbaa et al.) Still…

    It looks fun, it reminds me of Skylanders, and I’m very likely going to give this a go. I’m also very likely going to end up loving it despite my reservations.
