Comic book cash sink

The game-cross-toy genre is still alive and kicking, with the bigwigs at the House of Mouse announcing Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 earlier today. A sequel to last year’s Skylanders-inspired playbox, the title will focus on the various icons from its wholly owned comic book universe.

As with its predecessor, the release will come with various playsets featuring different recognisable figurines. So far, the firm has announced six of these: Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Iron Man, and Thor. The last three characters will be available as part of a new ‘Starter Set’, which will be bundled with a copy of the game.

You’ll be able to play through different campaigns as these superstars, with the likes of Spider-Man, Loki, and even MODOK on the way. The narrative is being penned by classic comic book writer Michael Bendis, with the scribe promising that future stories will “blow your mind”. Power discs will also make a return, allowing you to call in allies and more.

Furthermore, you’ll be able to bring your characters forward from the previous game, and use them in the Toy Box mode, which has been expanded to allow for the creation of interiors and more. The level cap of all existing figurines has been increased as well, with an upgraded skill tree also available for greater character customisation.

Don’t just take our word for it, though, as our friends over at Family Gamer TV have a lot more to say about this announcement. There’s a broader overview, as well as more specific gameplay information in the videos embedded below. The big question is: have you got a home big enough to host your growing toy collection?

Omg! I knew this would eventually come to PS4. Luckily my kids lost interest in the Skylanders and I don't think they've noticed the Disney Infinity yet as we no longer have a PS3 but now? I'm not sure I, I mean, they will be able to contain themselves when this comes out.

Everything about this strikes me as wrong. Horrendous character designs, the box, Disney Infinity 2.0 being even less Disney than the first game. I know Disney owns Marvel, but they own Winnie the Pooh also, where's Pooh?
The only thing that keeps this from being a total abomination (pun) is that Super Hero Squad already completely destroyed these characters for me, no further harm is possible. I read Hulk comics for 30 years and I just don't recall him ever looking like that. It's the Incredbles w/ Marvel skins. And it's not even Marvel, its just the Avengers and Spidey.

On the bright side, saves me a whole bunch of money and makes Trap Team look ok for when I have to buy it for my kids. Crossing my fingers for a Wii U Pokemon toy game announcement at E3. Wii U needs a new game and that NFC Gamepad has been almost completely ignored. Pokemon Rumble U was invisible.
