With Activision making money hand over fist ($500 million and counting) with their Skylanders game and figure series, it was only a matter of time before the copycats began. Maybe unlucky for Skylanders is that the first such game happens to be Disney Infinity, a game that will involve Disney characters and see them let loose in a huge sandbox game that includes environments from movies like Monsters University, [amazon_link id=”B0071JADFU” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Pirates of the Caribbean[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id=”B004I654UI” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Incredibles[/amazon_link].
The game will launch with three characters: Sully, Capt. Jack Sparrow and Mr. Incredible. Each character has access to open up their own world called “Playsets”. They can be combined together as more figures are bought from different franchises to create a huge open-world where characters can cross over between franchises. The Playset Reader is the pad that will read the figures and place them in the game. There will be three spots on each reader.
The video below shows off a number of franchises that will make it into the game including the beloved The Nightmare Before Christmas and last year’s hit Wreck It Ralph. Disney Infinity will take on [amazon_link id=”B004VQENY8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Skylanders[/amazon_link] this June on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii and 3DS.
