Disney unveils Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes

The Walt Disney Company reveals Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will launch this fall with over 20 Marvel characters.

The Walt Disney Company unveiled late yesterday its sequel to Disney Infinity.

Disney Interactive and Marvel Entertainment have teamed together to include over 20 Marvel Super Heroes for the upcoming Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.

For ease of creating levels, mini-games and sharing them, an all-new Toy Box mode has been included as well as original storylines written by award-winning Marvel comic writer, Brian Michael Bendis.

Included characters are The Avengers’ Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye. More are to be announced in the coming months.

All characters and power discs from last year’s Disney Infinity will be compatible with Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.

Disney Infinity was, from the start, built to be an interactive experience where players could bring together their favourite Disney characters and stories to create new Disney memories,” said Jimmy Pitaro, President of Disney Interactive.

“With the introduction of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, we’re ushering in a new chapter of adventures, featuring a cast of the world’s most popular Super Heroes. Bringing popular and iconic Marvel characters to the Disney Infinity platform truly takes this game to the next level.”

Peter Phillips, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Interactive & Digital Distribution at Marvel Entertainment said: “We’ve worked closely with the Disney Interactive team to deliver an incredible line-up of Marvel characters and great storytelling for the next chapter of Disney Infinity.

“The 2.0 edition will allow Marvel fans around the world to interact with their favourite Marvel Super Heroes in entirely new ways, including compelling gameplay and a new line of collectible interactive figures.”

Developed by Avalanche Software, the title will be available this fall for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, WiiU, PC, iOS tablets and smart phones.
