…we just live in it.
Lego has its own Universe, and now Disney wants theirs. Disney isn’t going the full massively multiplayer route (they already own Club Penguin), but is instead creating a minorly multiplayer game for Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Disney Universe will be the first time characters from all of Disney’s different realms (classic and contemporary animation, television, Pixar, and live action) will appear in a single property (other than a theme park). Gamers will be able to “suit up” as 40 different characters from movies like Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, Tron, Lilo and Stich, and others. There has been remarkably little information on the project, which is odd given its Fall release date. Thus far, there’s no complete list of characters, only two screen shots, and the teaser (below) to show what it might be like.
We do know that players get specific tools and abilities based on the character costume they’re wearing. They’ll be able to explore 6 different world to solve puzzles and defeat enemies, in either co-operative or competitive play. The Disney Blog is reporting that Alice in Wonderland and Monstropolis will be two of the game worlds.
Disney Interactive just published Traveler’s Tales Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, which is the same classic gameplay (and some of the same classic annoyances) as other Lego games. Disney/Lego also struck a deal for Toy Story and Pirates of the Caribbean Lego sets. Could we see a Lego Toy Story game in the near future?
