Disney Infinity trailer demos Toy Box mode world creation

Wednesday, 26th June 2013 23:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

If you’re still a bit confused about how Disney Infinity differs from toys-to-life rival Skylanders, here’s a good explanation of Toy Box mode, in which players can assemble and populate their own worlds and games from pieces of all sorts of Disney properties.

The world creation process involves using logic editor tools but Disney promises the tutorials are accessible and there are templates available. As well as the video, there are a couple of screens below showing off works-in-progress.

Disney Infinity is due in various forms in August on 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U and Xbox 360 with companion mobile apps expected to follow.

    That’s actually pretty impressive this blows away minecraaft. Though I wonder how many of these characters come pre loaded into the game lol I remember reading how youd have to buy all of the characters then scan them in with your eye or kinect.

    I don’t think Skylanders will be even remotely dented by this.

    The thing is is that Disney hasn’t understood its core demographic (kids) for a while, now. LEGO floundered for a bit, but they seem to be getting back on the right path, Disney’s been trying to get its shit together though since the arse end of the Eisner era.

    What does Skylanders have that Infinity doesn’t? Good characters.

    What do kids care about? Good characters.

    Consider this: If you were to ask a kid which to toys they’d prefer, which of the following would they pick? A car with eyes, and a guy in a superhero costume? Or a living fireball in a magical suit of armour, and a robotic dragon? Really, which would they pick?

    Toys for Bob really grokked this when they designed their lineup for Skylanders. They understand what kids are going to be drawn to, they get what a kid would drag their parents over to as a toy. What you guys are looking at is from an older gamer perspective, which isn’t really most kids. Admittedly, yes, most kids do like Minecraft, but there’s a base simplicity to Minecraft that doesn’t exist in what I’ve seen in Infinity.

    Hell, that they have Jack Sparrow as a character in this just tells me that Disney doesn’t have a clue any more.

    Smart money’s still on Skylanders, for me.
