We’re really excited to share the news that Star Wars will join Disney, Disney•Pixar, and Marvel in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition for PS4 and PS3! The team’s been working tirelessly on the next installment of Disney Infinity, which will bring together many favorite characters and include more gameplay content and variety than ever before.

We’re thrilled to finally be able to share the trailer with you guys:

Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition will feature three Star Wars Play Sets: Twilight of the Republic set in the Episodes I-III timeline, Rise Against the Empire set during the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI), and the third – available this winter – based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In Twilight of the Republic, use the Force and Lightsabers in epic battles as Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Darth Maul. Rise Against the Empire will take you on galaxy-spanning missions with Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader.

From the Marvel Universe, there will be a Marvel Play Set that will feature new Marvel characters including Hulkbuster Iron Man and Ultron.

All-new Toy Box Expansion Games: Toy Box Takeover (action-adventure) and Toy Box Speedway (kart racing) will bring all of your Disney Infinity characters together for all-new, structured multiplayer gameplay. You can bring all of your Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars characters from Disney Infinity 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 into these Toy Box Expansion Games as well as the enhanced Toy Box 3.0.

For more info about today’s announcement, check out the Disney Infinity website. In addition to that, John Vignocchi (VP, Production) and I will be live on Twitch this Friday answering your Disney Infinity 3.0 questions.

    1) Absolutely no information regarding the Vita version of 2.0?

    2) Doesn’t look like it’s getting 3.0, so I’m to assume you’re leaving Vita with the outdated version?

  • I never played a Disney Infinity game, what should I know? Is it only for little kids? Thanks.

  • Hope to see your booth at E3. The line is always long but well worth the wait to get a figure.

  • Please just let me play as any character in any playset. I want Donald Duck playable in the Star Wars playset. Is that so much to ask? The whole cop-out of “fans would be upset” is just that, a cop-out. Don’t put in an artificial limitation.

  • ExtremeGamer

    Digital version at launch? Please, please, please!

  • CAPT_N_MORGAN

    Disney and its cartoons RIP Star Wars…

  • @2 Skylanders was made by ex pixar members, and is kinda the gold standard of figures + videogames.

    Disney Infinity was more of a cash in because of the higher cost of figures and the requirement that you had to have 2 pirates of the Carribean Figures in order to play co-op in Pirates of the Carribean. I don’t know about the changes in 2.0 but I assume that went away.

    The main reason to play Infinity is basically the toy box mode stuff where you make your own levels, games, what ever. Disney Infinity metacritics around the mid 70s while as Skylanders metacritics in the mid to low 80s.

    The new Disney Infinity could change all this and be a better game and a better experience, or you might just like it more with Star Wars characters… But if you’re not sure you want to start in Disney Infinity, wait till 3.0 hits a sale. Usually happens 1-2 months after release where it will be 1/3 the price or so to get people to come to stores like Target, or Wal-Mart to buy it.

    So don’t buy it at full price. The games are enjoyable for adults, you might not like the look of the figures, just wait and see. Wait for reviews, and if they don’t convince you should be happier after a price drop. $70-80 is just a bit steep.

  • I second the request for information on whether the Vita version will also get 3.0.

  • Any chance on a digital upgrade option? Would I still need a new base if so? All I really want is Anakin,Obi Wan,Darth Maul,Darth Vader,Yoda, and all the new toolbox stuff. Crap thats like everything isn’t it the point is I’m not a big enough fan to pay the 100 -150ish dollars for all the playsets. P. S. Where are the rest of the marvel characters? The X men! The Punisher! The rest of the Spiderman heroes and villans!

  • I discovered that I couldn’t use 1.0 play sets on 2.0! How stupid is that? So, if they’re not going to let us use 1.0 and 2.0 on 3.0, then no thank you!

  • Infinity is fun for adults if you have kids, but if no kids, then you might not like it.

  • I’ll save my $ for Star Wars Battlefront! Hopefully, they’ll start making better Marvel games! Like a GTA style Iron Man game (Free roaming, not vulgar, LOL) You could drive his cars all over Malibu, check out his house on the cliff. Build your own suits and test them! It could be awesome. What about a Shadow of Mordor style Thor game. And what about the game Shadow of the Colossus? You could play up to 4 X-Men as you work together to take down giant Sentinels! I don’t know why they aren’t working on these things, because fans want them!

  • Riiiight… So I can shell out another small fortune on 3.0 and have you announce 4.0 two months later… No thanks. Done with getting soaked by a game much more limited creatively than the LBP franchise. I’ll make the most of what I got till 3.0 is in the bargain bin, just like I did with 2.0.

  • Really? 4 days before the Vita launch of 2.0? Okay then. How about this time, you put the Vita version out at the same time as the other versions, and maybe even bundle 3.0 with a White Vita Slim. Advertise. Then the Vita will have more users.

  • My comment: I love littlebigplanet because you can make you owner stuff, but I don’t want to buy little toys so not into this. I know the toys are cool and made with quality in mind, but don’t like taking up space in my room/house. I’m not a collector.

  • How about some words about the release of Disney Infinity 2.0 on PSVITA ? And PSVITA will receive Disney Infinity 3.0 ?

  • SHARINGAN_JP

    no vita

  • Any chance of the Vita getting 3.0? I understand if you want to see how well 2.0 Vita sells first, since that would make sense, but it’s still nice to know either way.

    I can at least play 3.0 on the PS3 at least, but I wanted it portable. Star Wars should be an awesome addition though.

    Lots of comments here from people that didn’t actually explore the options that Disney Infinity 2.0 let you have when you were creating things. LittleBigPlanet is just a nasty mess with a ton of silly DLC. And oh, I don’t know, you could just buy 1 single figure with Disney Infinity instead of trying to buy them all and whining about the cost. All you need is 1 figure, not all of them…

    And @11, why are you getting rid of your older games? Stop complaining about not being able to use old stuff in new stuff.

  • I didn’t know that you couldn’t use the 1.0 playsets in 2.0. I might still get 2.0 Vita now.

  • + CAPT_N_MORGAN
    Disney buying Lucasfilm was the best thing to happen to Star Wars in years. I’ve been holding out on getting into Infinity, and this massive Star Wars fan has just found his reason to get all crazy.

  • I hope that more of the female characters are playable outside of Toybox mode. Preferably, beyond just sticking a gun in their hands.

    I enjoyed Infinity 2.0 on PS4, but it definitely had a last-gen feel despite overall fantastic texture quality. Will 3.0 have better lighting, particle effects, etc this time around?

    It looked like there was a Miss Piggy character in the video for a moment — will we finally get full-sized Muppets figures?

    Why is Disney even releasing a Vita version of Infinity 2.0 if they’re going to treat its users like this? You guys have given it next to 0 promotion (not even a mention in this blog post!) despite it coming out in a few days and see no issue in announcing a followup not coming to the platform. I could understand porting 2.0 over so that the engine is ready for a 3.0 port on Vita, but that doesn’t seem like it’s happening. This seems like another Amazing Spider-Man situation, where Vita gets a really late port of a licensed game while every other platform gets the sequel. It’s frustrating and frankly, mind boggling.

  • I wonder how much venom Vita fans/trolls have generated up to this point?

  • gerneric123

    Enough venom to be a Spider-Man villain.

  • ShadowStar83x

    Might get this.

    To call Skylanders the gold standard in toy-based games is a colossal understatement. It was the first, no doubt about that, but you can do so much more in Disney Infinity and its Toy Box mode. We started off as a Skylanders family, but the replay value is relatively low upon completion unless you’re a collectibles junkie. My kids quickly gravitated towards making their own adventures with their favorite characters, iconic characters from franchises like Disney, Marvel, and now Star Wars?

    Skylanders looks great, sure, but year-over-year it feels like more of the same simply attached to a new figure gimmick. Oh, and it took them three games to put in a JUMP? Come on now!

    I’m not getting into this genre again after Skylanders: Giants (And Swap Force) made me realize that it was going to be nothing but an annual cash cow targeting kids. While I’m certainly interested by Disney Infinity, the fact that the upgrades don’t support old playsets makes me lose any interest in getting any of the games.

    I’d be intrigued by the prospect of having an entire platform of miniature games to play such as Monsters Inc. U, Pirates of the Carribean, Star Wars, and Lilo and Stitch, but the very nature of not supporting the past ones severely limits the scope to me. While these additional multiplayer modes sound nice, my biggest gripe is that I want to be able to pick a significantly upgraded version every few years (Like I do with Pokemon), but still play what interests me.

    I can understand (And am fine with) 3.0 not supporting 4.0 playsets or characters. But why does it not support 1.0 and 2.0 playsets?

  • blitzwing256

    The playsets are stand alone games, all the extra items and characters are all compatible in toybox mode, any of the discs you collect and charecters you bought all work in toybox mode

  • Will wait for a Force Unleashed playbox.

  • Oh and by the way LEGO DIMENSIONS!!

  • Loving it! Between this and Battlefront I’m thinking that my Star Wars gaming itch will be scratched pretty well for the foreseeable future…Hoping that E3 brings at least one more Star Wars announcement.

    Now if we can only get a confirmation on another Amazon big box collector edition, like the one for Avengers 2.0?
