The thing about pie is when someone has a whole one…everyone else want’s a piece of that pie. Disney is no exception as they have now officially confirmed the rumors that we reported last year that they were readying a “Skylanders Slayer” -Disney Infinityis official and it’s coming this June 2013! Without further ado, here is the official trailer:

Disney states that there will be two player split-screen multiplayer for Disney Infinity as well as four-player drop-in drop-out online play. All of Disney’s characters will come together inside the game in an area called the ‘Toy Box’. Within the Toy Box players will be able to complete pre-existing quests and you will even be able to create your own (though to what extent is not known yet). Furthermore, everything inside the Toy Box is editable as well – from the buildings to toys.
The Incredibles Playset boasts an open-world where you will be able to fight enemies seen from the movie and be able to create custom buildings. While the Monsters University Playset pits players against a rival school with the ultimate goal of scaring children from the rival school. The Pirates of the Caribbean Playset will let players have battles with other pirate ships and explore uncharted lands by traveling from island to island via your pirate ship.
Disney Infinitywill be available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, WiiU, 3DS PC, and mobile platforms. It will launch with Monsters University, The Incredibles and Pirates of the Caribbean Adventures Sets and around 20 toy figurines. Additional Adventure Sets are expected to arrive sometime later in 2013.
It looks like Skylanders has some competition and who knows…maybe they will push each other into making better games so that everyone wins. Question is, can you afford both Skylanders and Disney Infinity?
