Disney Infinity is the upcoming Disney game that will feature a Skylanders type model, with gamers purchasing action figures for corresponding characters in the game. Now rumor has it that the recently purchased franchises of Marvel and Star Wars could be added to the lineup! This would be huge news as one of the first mergers of Disney and Star Wars in the gaming world, especially after Disney shut down LucasArts.
VP of product development for Disney Interactive recently spoke on the possibility of adding Star Wars to the game, “[It] was definitely exciting when that [news of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm] came down from within the company. We love the potential for Infinity. We always joke, well, ‘the possibilities are infinite.’ For us, we’re really just focused on launching this platform quickly. We’ve got incredible IPs, and we’re showing the strength of what we’re building with the way we’ve approached the creative, where everything in the game world is toys, so we can have a Jack Sparrow next to Sully and it makes sense.”
As more comes out on the game, and the possible inclusion of Star Wars and Marvel, we’ll be sure to let you know. For now, view the list of Disney Infinity characters currently available.
