Disney Infinity 2.0 has released their new trailer and it features a first look at the Mistress of All Evil, Maleficent as well as Brave?s gutsy princess, Merida.
The trailer follows Merida as she explores the Disney Infinity 2.0 world and has a surprise run in with Maleficent.
The game?s action figures of the characters are to be sold separately and will each come with its own set of special abilities.
Disney Infinity?s Maleficent is modeled after Disney?s latest movie of the same name. The movie stars Angelina Jolie in the dark fantasy adventure film. It?s a live action reimagining of Disney?s 1959 animated movie Sleeping Beauty but on the flip side as it tells the story from the perspective of the antagonist, Maleficent.
Timing wise, Disney nailed it perfectly as the movie is already a box office hit and having gamers relate to the characters makes for the gaming experience more engaging and memorable.
Aside from Maleficent, Princess Merida is also coming to the game. Princess Merida is from the 2012 computer animated fantasy movie, Brave and tells the story of a princess named Merida who defies an age old custom which causes chaos and confusion within the kingdom by expressing the desire to not be betrothed. After consulting a witch for help, Princess Merida accidentally transforms her mother into a bear and is forced to find ways to undo the spell before it?s too late. The movie premiered on Jun 10, 2012 and has since won awards that include Best Animated Film and the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Film.
The pairing is called the Wicked and the Brave and that would be the reason why both these characters have been paired together.
It was confirmed last month that both characters were coming to?Disney Infinity 2.0?following teasers that were released on Twitter.
Disney Infinity 2.0 is set to launch this coming September. Aside from Maleficent and Merida, Marvel characters will also be?coming?to the game. Heroes like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor will be joining the Disney lineup. The game will be available for iOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and the Windows PC.
