Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, Star Wars™ Battlefront™ and KINGDOM HEARTS III To Headline Disney Interactive’s Hall D23 Presentation and Expo Pavilion
I am a child of the 80’s, I grew up with Atari and Nintendo controllers in my hand. Video games are in my blood and I know I passed this trait on to my children. So when the good folks at D23 Expo released the Disney Interactive schedule details I was excited to read all about it. At the Disney Interactive Pavillon guests can experience live hands-on demos and get a preview of new video game titles that are coming out.
Guests at D23 Expo will have the chance to play some of the new Disney Infinity Play Sets, Star Wars™ Twilight of the Republic, Star Wars™ Rise Against the Empire and Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out, and the fully enhanced Toy Box mode.
Pavilion guests will also be able to visit the “Only in the Toy Box” Experience and get the chance to step into a virtual Toy Box environment and interact alongside their favorite Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel andStar Wars characters found inside Disney Infinity
Disney Infinity will also be giving away thousands of pre-release Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition figures featuring popular characters from across The Walt Disney Company. The figures are only available while supplies last so if you really want one then I suggest making this your first stop on Friday.
Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront will be released on November 17, 2015 and it’s easy to see that this will be a smash hit. In this game you will be able to play as a Star Wars Hero or Villain and there will be a multiplayer mode with battles on Hoth, Endor, Tatooine and even on Jakku. OMG, I can’t even wrap my mind around how awesome that will be. It will be like you are in the movie!!
Pavilion guests will also be able to live out some of their Star Wars battle fantasies by going hands-on with Star Wars Battlefront.
If you want to see all of this awesomeness in action you will need to head to the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center in August 14-16, 2015.
Disney Interactive will also take the stage at Hall D23 on Sunday, August 16th at 11:00 a.m. During the Hall D23 presentation fans will be treated to never-before-seen gameplay, trailers and surprises from Disney Interactive’s most anticipated games.
Disney Interactive will showcase more Star Wars characters and Play Sets new to Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition and provide the entire audience with limited-edition giveaways exclusively for Hall D23. When I went to the presentation in 2013 I was gifted the Sorcerer Mickey figure.
Electronic Arts will give guests an in-depth look at Star Wars Battlefront, the authentic Star Wars gaming experience coming November 17. Square Enix will also bring special guests and surprises to Hall D23 to reveal new information from KINGDOM HEARTS III.
What do you think? Are you excited to see these new games? I will certainly be spending time at the Disney Interactive Pavillon and I will hope to grab a seat in the Hall on Sunday for the Disney Interactive presentation.
