Today, after much hinting and whispering on Disney fan pages, Disney's answer to Activision's Skylanders was unveiled. The series, Disney Infinity, utilizes figures of well-known Disney characters, like Toy Story's Woody and Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean films, and transports them to the virtual world via the Portal of Power -- I mean, Infinity base. From there, you can choose to play within "play sets," where you can participate in activities specific to a character's world, or enter "Toy Box mode," where you have the chance to mesh characters and worlds and even create your own games.
Like Skylanders, Disney Infinity will start out as a bundle of three characters, the Infinity base, and the game (available for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U initially, followed by 3DS and mobile platforms), with additional figures available for purchase separately.
Are you excited about this new series, Tomoreaders? Are there any characters you'd like to see?
