The Play Sets let players explore, mess around in mini-games and take on missions set by an abundance of wonderfully recreated Disney characters. The missions are bread-and-butter affairs - climb some platforms, bash these things x number of times, that sort of thing. It’s breezy, accessible, depth-free stuff not far removed from the popular Lego games, but for older Disney fans it can be repetitive. On the plus side there are loads of neat things to find, such as the create-a-monster hut on the Monster University campus.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_bmUploads_2013-07-17_620_ToyBoxIncredibles6.png?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Chess.png?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Toy Box </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If the Play Sets are a bit shallow for older players, the Toy Box is a much more tempting offer. This mode lets the imagination run riot by allowing players to mix up elements from different Disney franchises and use a wide range of items - from palm trees to character-slapping fly swatters - to mould virtual playgrounds of their own design that can then be shared with friends.</p> <p>What’s more, pulling out the objects you want to use and sticking them into the grid-like structure of the world is easy peasy.

The £50-odd starter pack gives you one Play Set, three figures and one power disc that lets players access a bunch of extra items and features. Want another power disc? That’ll be £3. Want another figurine? That starts at £12 per figure going up to £25 for a pack of three. And another Play Set to play will cost you £30. So while <em>Infinity</em> offers the prospect of having always something new to play with, it’s going to do serious damage to your bank balance – especially if your kids have honed their pester powers to ninja-like levels.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Cars_1b.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/_bmUploads_2013-07-30_677_POC___Base_w_discs.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Francesco_1.jpg?1378227861" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Disney Infinity</em> takes the raw figurine-collecting appeal of <em>Skylanders</em> and enhances it with a wonderfully accessible world-creation tool capable of enchanting young and old(er) alike.

announcement is a Winter Olympics-themed Mario and Sonic game for the Wii U, which will feature a variety of sports (including figure skating and curling) and is intended to coincide with next year’s Sochi Olympics. Interestingly, this is actually being developed by Sega, Nintendo’s old arch nemesis turned collaborator, who will also be launching action-adventure platformer Sonic: The Lost World exclusively on Wii U and 3DS.</p> <p>Other games looked at in the video include Game and Wario for the Wii U (a collection of mini games designed around the console’s GamePad), Resident Evil Revelations (already available on 3DS, it’s coming to Wii U with enhanced graphics and new content) and New Super Luigi U. The latter is a major DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U starring (surprise, surprise) Luigi, along with Toad and Nabbit as playable characters. It’ll be released on 20th June.</p> <p>Nintendo says another Nintendo Direct video will be released around the time of E3, and that it’ll detail games due to be released further ahead in the future.</p> <p>You can watch the entire video above.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/apps-and-games/news-nugget/nintendo-reveals-upcoming-games-ahead-of-e3 </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-reveals-upcoming-games-ahead-e3/news#comments 3DS Console games Nintendo Wii U Fri, 17 May 2013 20:45:46 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1423673 at http://www.stuff.tv New Zelda game coming to Nintendo 3DS this year http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/new-zelda-game-coming-nintendo-3ds-year/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Link fans rejoice – and there are new Yoshi’s Island and Mario &amp; Luigi titles on the way too </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-zelda-3ds-game.jpg?1371113854" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/mario-and-luigi-dream-team-bros.jpg?1371113854" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_5782.jpg?1371113854" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Owners of the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/review/nintendo-3ds">Nintendo 3DS</a> can rejoice today, because the handheld system is getting a new Legend of Zelda game. What’s more it’s set in the same world as 1992’s A Link to the Past, arguably the best-loved Zelda title of all time.</p> <p>The new Zelda title makes use of the 3DS’s 3D skills by letting Link “become a drawing” and move within walls, as well as jump to higher platforms. It will feature an entirely new storyline and new dungeons. The game is scheduled for a release in late 2013.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div

You can pick up Ninty's handheld for around £155 these days but judging from new prices set in America (US$170) and Japan (¥1500), we reckon the RRP for the 3DS might go as low as £120. Nintendo has confirmed it will be dropping the price in Europe, but won't tell us when or by how much.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/computers-and-consoles/rumour-mill/nintendo-3ds-price-to-drop-to-%C2%A3120 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-3ds-price-drop-%C2%A3120/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-3ds-price-drop-%C2%A3120/news#comments 3DS Nintendo Thu, 28 Jul 2011 09:53:27 +0000 Sophie Charara 417234 at http://www.stuff.tv Nintendo gets sued over 3DS technology http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-gets-sued-over-3ds-technology/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Ninty’s hot under the collar with a lawsuit centred around that magical screen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="442" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/nintendo-3ds-blue-open_0_0_0.png?1364401761" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="442" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/nintendo-3ds-blue-open_0_5.png?1364401761" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_3214.jpg?1364401761" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>A Japanese company – Tomita Technologies – has filed a lawsuit against Nintendo, which it alleges infringed its patent for a "stereoscopic image picking up and display system based upon optical axes cross-point information."

It'll come from a firmware update via Wi-Fi that gives the 3DS an internet browser and Nintendo eShop support.</p> <p>We're getting most giddy about the prospect of 3D Classics – downloadable retro games remastered in 3D – as well as 2D Virtual Console titles from the Game Boy and Game Boy Color. Super Mario Land, anyone?</p> <p>Updating before 7 June gets you a 3D remaster of the NES classic, Excitebike. For the kids, there's Pokedex 3D, which displays Pokemon characters in three dimensions.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/computers-and-consoles/news-nugget/nintendo-3ds-to-get-eshop-update </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-3ds-get-eshop-update/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/nintendo-3ds-get-eshop-update/news#comments 3DS Nintendo Thu, 02 Jun 2011 16:00:26 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 416597 at http://www.stuff.tv 5 of the best Nintendo 3DS alternatives http://www.stuff.tv/3ds/5-best-nintendo-3ds-alternatives/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Perhaps you’re in the queue for a 3DS.
