Trailer: Disney Infinity revealed for all consoles

Infendo

Disney Interactive today announced Disney Infinity, which will release for all platforms, including the Wii U and soon-to-be mobile devices, in Summer 2013. The game will be a sandbox style environment that combines the best of Disney and Pixar’s own worlds and creations. Infinity can be best described in the same vein as Skylanders and Minecraft, in which customization and the use of collectable toys are used to enhance the overall experience. 40 collectable interactive pieces will be available at the game’s initial launch, alongside 17 actual character figurines for players to use in Toy Box mode.

With near-field communication included into the Wii U’s GamePad, the possibilities and potential are there to reach out into the same territory that Skylanders had already established.  What do you have to say? Can NFC-enabled games pick up on the Wii U? Let us know in the comments below.
