In what was probably the worst kept secret of all time, Disney Infinity has finally announced that their 3.0 edition will be Star Wars. Now, feel free to join me in looking at that beautiful picture up above and jumping for joy. Hit the jump for all the details and a kickass trailer!
The incredible news was revealed this morning in Game Informer, who will be focusing their June issue on the brand new launch. The opening pack for Star Wars will be Clone Wars themed, as Ahsoka and Anakin try and stop a new droid army - with possible assists from Yoda, Obi-wan, and Darth Maul. Luke and Leia will come packed with an adventure that takes place during the original trilogy, and can get help from figures of Han, Chewie, and Darth Vader. (Never mind why Maul and Vader would help - we don't ask those sorts of questions in Infinity.)
Not to be outdone, the Disney side of 3.0 includes Mulan, five characters from Pixar's new film, Inside Out, Olaf from Frozen, and Flynn and Quorra from Tron. And finally, Marvel was announced to get slate of new characters including Hulkbuster Iron Man and Ultron.
There's a slight mention in the article of the Star Wars characters "crossing over into other sets." Whether this means something similar to Nova's ability to be unlocked in the Guardians playset, or whether it means Disney is finally going to allow characters from different universes to play together, remains to be seen. We'll cross our fingers and hope.
Perhaps the biggest news of all is that the folks at Avalanche Software have reached out to some top notch developers to help them out with this iteration. Ninja Theory, of Devil May Cry fame, will be tuning the combat, while Sumo Digital of Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing, will be doing some much-needed fine tuning to the driving aspects.
Disney Infinity 3.0 releases this fall.
