Update: Disney announced that Disney Infinity was the “#1 best-selling new hybrid toy/video game of 2013, according to the NPD Group’s video games retail sales data.”
Getting to Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, there will be more than 20 new interactive figures and an all-new Toy Box mode that makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and mini-games with family and friends. As well, the PS3 Disney Infinity base will work on PS4.
Disney Interactive President Jimmy Pitaro said:
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.
Peter Phillips, EVP and General Manager of Interactive & Digital Distribution at Marvel Entertainment, added:
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 favorite Marvel Super Heroes in entirely new ways, including compelling gameplay and a new line of collectible interactive figures.
Finally, Avalanche Software VP and General Manager John Blackburn said:
Marvel Super Heroes fit perfectly into Disney Infinity, and with them we are pushing the platform’s limits of creativity and imagination. We’ve enhanced and redesigned the gameplay to match the Marvel characters, while also making it easier than ever for players to express and share their own creativity.
