It’s June and the first day of summer is right around the corner. With 17 new games from Disney available on PlayStation Now starting today, it is the perfect time to enjoy some Disney magic – especially if you’re heading into summer vacation.
Suit up as your favorite character in Disney Universe, a multiplayer adventure where iconic Disney characters and legendary Disney worlds collide. Re-live the exciting swashbuckling tales of Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swan in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, which includes the first four PotC films. Buckle up and take the wheel in Split Second and experience thrilling racing, destructible environments, and driver-triggered “powerplays” as you race to the finish line.
One of the most amazing parts of all of this is being able to work with Lucasfilm to create new game content with the characters and locations from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, told in a way that only LEGO Star Wars can. Through a strong collaboration with Lucasfilm, we’ve been able to create new stories and adventures connecting the Star Wars narrative, both before and tying into the movie. As such huge fans of the franchise, it’s a tremendous honor to have that privilege.
Hey everyone, John Vignocchi, Vice President of Production on Disney Infinity with exciting news on the launch of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition) for Sony’s PS Vita handheld system.
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 always looking for new experiences to bring to PS Vita owners, and many times it’s as easy as looking at the extensive catalog of games that make up the PS3 library. The powerful hardware included in PS Vita has no problem handling PS3-quality experiences on the go, and we’re excited to bring another PS3 title to your favorite handheld. Today we’re announcing that PS Vita owners will be able to check out Disney Interactive’s Epic Mickey 2 on PS Vita next month, on June 18th.
In November 2010, Disney Interactive released Disney Epic Mickey, a game my studio created featuring Mickey Mouse in his first videogame appearance after many years away from the interactive screen. The opportunity to work with a character as well-known as Mickey would have been incentive enough for us, but Disney offered us something else – the chance to bring Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, back to the world after 80-some years.
The Junction Point team jumped at this chance to play a part in Disney’s history, creating a world and a story that honored the past while resolutely looking toward the future. We started by creating a world called Wasteland, repository for all of Disney’s forgotten creative efforts — characters cut from films, rides retired from theme parks, toys and licensed ephemera from years gone by — and then dropped Oswald there, as the first forgotten character.
As gaming résumés go, few can compare to that of Warren Spector. After starting his career on the fabled Wing Commander series back in 1990, he went on to work on massive franchises such as Ultima and System Shock, before re-inventing the stealth genre with Deus Ex and Thief. In short, he’s a true giant of game development.
And this week sees him return to the fray, with Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two – an ambitious sequel to his epic 2010 platforming adventure, packing in full co-op play and PlayStation Move support. The Junction Point founder was kind enough to lend PlayStation.Blog a few minutes of his valuable time to discuss the game – read on to find out what he had to say.
