Now that it has a solid if later than expected release date, Disney Infinity is available for pre-order at various retailers. The toys-to-life affair is pretty pricey – as well as the game, Infinity Base and figures included in the Starter Pack, you’re probably going to want some extra figures and power discs – but Best Buy, Gamestop and Amazon are all offering various bonuses on pre-orders, which should help. Disney Infinity is due in August on 3DS, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and Wii U, and will be supported by mobile apps.

Leaked footage of Star Wars: First Assault has turned up, once again courtesy of Kotaku. The footage shows early gameplay footage purportedly from the fall 2012 build, as well as a video showing a pre-rendered clip. The source who sent the videos to Kotaku stated the gameplay video shows in-game footage with all known issues for the time, and that since the video’s creation, “many improvements have been made in performance, completeness, and quality.” First Assault is a FPS which was slated for a spring 2013 and it was originally outed in late August by a domain name and trademark registration.

Star Wars: First Assault recently turned up among some XBLA files online, sparking rumours that LucasArts was working on a new game. The FPS game is real, and it is downloadable, a source has told Kotaku. It’s said to be the studio’s way of testing the water before committing to Battlefront 3.

The awesome SEGA Genesis game, Castle of Illusion, may be heading to PS3, Wii U, Vita, and Xbox 360 if a listing on the Brazilian Ratings site is any indication.

Disney chairman and CEO Robert Iger said during a HRTS Newsmakers Luncheon this week the company would look into whether any of its video game offerings could be deemed as violent. Iger admitted there is “very little” violent content created at Disney, but said the company would take “stock in everything we’ve got that can be considered near or over the line.” Iger stated further he wanted to make sure Disney was asking the right questions in terms of its content and remain “part of a dialogue in today’s world that I think is pretty necessary in terms of what our role is and what our role should be.” Thanks: GI International.

Star War 1313 screenshots have popped up on Sony Germany’s Facebook page, albeit older shots, it indicates that PS3 will be one of the systems the shooter is release on. Announced by Lucasarts pre-show at E3 2012, platforms other than PC were never confirmed, leading the public to wonder if it was a this-gen or next-gen console release. A Lucasarts representative has said the listing is “not accurate” and that it has no announcements to make regarding the game at this time. So, make of this what you will.
Lucasarts was purchased by Disney in October last year, prompting the developer to assure fans the title’s development was not affected. Star Wars 1313 is slated for release in 2013 on PC. Via Playnews.
