“May the Force Be With You!” Such sage words from such a little green Jedi master! As a tried and true Star Wars fan I have been excited about for some time, so I was ecstatic when the folks from Disney Interactive sent me one to try for myself just prior to all of the fun #ForceFriday events!
As I talked about before when I wrote about Star Wars Joining Disney Infinity, in this new version, you get the following:
- Three Star Wars Play Sets, one set in the timeline of Episodes I-III, the second set during the original trilogy, Episodes IV-VI, and the third available this winter based on Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™
- Additional Play Sets offering distinct gameplay and environments, including a Disney•Pixar Play Set based on the upcoming film Inside Out, and a Marvel Play Set featuring Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, and other Marvel characters
- A fully enhanced Toy Box with two new multiplayer Toy Box Expansion Games, Toy Box Speedway (kart racing) and Toy Box Takeover (action-adventure)
- More figures of fan-favorite characters from across The Walt Disney Company, like Mickey and Minnie, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Amazon, Mulan and Olaf, among many others. Check out the entire cast of characters in my Amazon Store!
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack will include the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Base and video game software, the Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices. Other Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Play Sets, figures, and Toy Box Expansion Games will be sold separately.
All figures and Power Discs from the 1.0 and 2.0 editions of Disney Infinity will be compatible with Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition in the enhanced Toy Box and, for the first time, Power Discs will be sold in labeled franchise-specific packs of four. Additional Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel and Star Warsfigures and Play Sets will be announced in the coming months.
My take on the Game!
My daughters and I tried out the system this weekend and we loved the game play, although everyone was fighting over who wanted to be Yoda at first! We found that there was a ton of great action and you can really get into the characters whether you are on a mission or in the toybox itself.
My youngest particularly liked to play in the toybox with some of the 1.0 and 2.0 characters that we have and have them interact with the Star Wars characters. Let me tell you, having the Hulk and Yoda hanging out was a bit comical, but fun, never-the-less!
In the playset itself you get a great game/mission that comes with it which is fun and for younger players takes a bit of concentration and control, but it is doable. That being said, the game will take you from alien planets to outer space and more, which makes it a ton of fun for the whole family!
There are also a ton of new vehicles and a place right in the toybox for practicing this which is great too.
We have been having a blast thus far with the interactivity of the system as well as the story in the mission too. We also really have been loving the graphics as they truly do jump off the screen and allow you to become a part of the action.
Whether you are a Star Wars fan or not, this is a great addition to the Disney Infinity universe, and actually, with the addition of the Inside Out characters along with some additional ones, you can expand into far different worlds too!
