Disney Infinity returns in Marvel form, with a new range of collectable toys to unlock in-game super heroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Groot and Rocket, with harder challenges, ingenious upgrade trees and more ways to create your own adventures thrown in for good measure.
If you’ve not kept up, Disney Infinity works with a collectable range of sculpted figurines that unlock characters in-game. Whether it’s a sneaky way to sell toys or a novel way to interact with games is up for debate. But either way, with Marvel in the mix, it’s on our radar.
It’s going head to head against Skylanders Trap Team (which launches in October), and they’ll both be battling it out to earn their spot under the tree come Christmas.
With new content and an improved Toy Box mode turning you into a master game-maker, Disney Infinity 2.0 promises plenty of fun and distractions for young and older fans alike. But does it deliver?
Marvel Play-Sets Are Go
Unlike last year’s focus on family brands like The Incredibles, Toy Story or Cars, this year Disney Infinity 2.0 takes on the Marvel universe. This delivers three distinct adventures in The Avengers, Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. All strong franchises, but only The Avengers comes with the starter pack. You’ll need to fork out around £30 for the other sets, each with two related characters.
