I was fortunate enough to stop by the Disney Infinity pop-up shop at SDCC this weekend and get some hands on time with the newest version of the latest in Disney’s entry to the figure-based interactive game market, Disney Infinity 3.0
Not only can you use characters from every previous incarnation of the game (and by the time this one has all of its play sets out, there will be over 100 playable characters), but they really seem to have put in the effort to listen to their players and work out the kinks in the gameplay. I am going to chalk this one up to the inclusion of Star Wars, it is one license that you really do not want to screw up. There will be three Star Wars play sets,Twilight of the Republic; which focuses on the Prequels and Clone Wars and features Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, and Darth Maul. Rise Against the Empire, which focuses on the Original Trilogy, and featuresPrincess Leia, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader. And third set that will feature characters and settings from The Force Awakens this winter. They have also produced figures from the awesome animated series Rebels as well, and all Star Wars characters are playable in every Star Wars play set.
