Marvel Super Heroes to Join Disney Infinity This Fall
Posted on May 7, 2014
Disney Interactive and Marvel Entertainment have announced plans to make Marvel super heroes available for Disney Infinity. Disney Interactive launched Disney Infinity last year. It features character figures that come to life in the virtual Toy Box universe. It launched with characters from The Incredibles, Monsters University and Pirates of the Caribbean. It was expected at the time that Disney would eventually add Marvel and possible Star Wars characters. Now Marvel superheroes have been added to the line of interactive gaming toys.
Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will arrive in stores this fall. The collection will feature 20 interactive figures. It will also include original storylines by Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis. Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye are six of the characters that have been announced. The remaining characters will be named in the coming months.
The 2.0 edition of Disney Infinity will be available for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC as well as iOS and Android devices. It will be backwards compatible with the Disney Infinity characters sold from the first set.
Jimmy Pitaro, President of Disney Interactive, says in the announcement, "Disney Infinity' was, from the start, built to be an interactive experience where players could bring together their favorite Disney characters and stories to create new Disney memories. 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."
