The folks over at Game Informer have revealed that the next Disney Infinity upgrade will be chiefly devoted to STAR WARS. This news isn’t particularly shocking given that The Powers That be have obliquely teased the possibility on at least a few occasions, and the fact that there’s…you know…this nutty little STAR WARS movie hitting later this year.
Notably, the next iteration of the figure-based gaming universe is dubbed ‘INFINITY 3.0’ (the recent Marvel issuance was decreed 2.0). No word (yet) on whether this means a new portal (the nifty device which sucks figure avatars and the information saved on the figures into games) will be deployed. If so, new starter sets would have to be purchased for roughly $79. If not, and if the 2.0 portals can be used here…fans will only have to wrangle the SW figures they’re interested in, and whatever playsets (i.e. ‘level’ statues) they want to purchase. More on this later.
…strongly implying the coming of Ultron and Hulk Buster figures (yes!). The video below also provides the briefest look at two of INFINITY’s upcoming TRON LEGACY figures.
I quite enjoyed INFINITY 2.0 - found it to be a smart an affectionate celebration of all things Marvel, its figures to be fun and well crafted, and the game itself it be a wisely realized upgrade which learned from the shortcomings of the title’s intorductory iteration. If that smart learning curve continues, this new STAR WARS stuff could be a helluva lot of un indeed.
