Disney Infinity

Disney Dips Deep In The Toy Box In Latest Disney Infinity Trailer

Disney Infinity's big hook is that it's essentially two games in one. In addition to providing character-themed gameplay based on familiar licenses, the game allows players to jam elements from a wide array of Disney properties together in a chaotic, free-form Toy Box mode. A new trailer shows off more of the Toy Box action, including samples of the kinds of games-within-a-game creations that players can make on their own.

The clip shows off what's possible given enough time and interest. In many ways, it's a lot like LittleBigPlanet 2. Some players are going to be content playing the baked-in games or downloading other peoples' creations, while others will likely spend hours tweaking switches and logic controls to make their cars-themed pinball machine work exactly the way they want. The gallery of screens at the bottom focus more on the chaotic mash-up angle that the game provides. 

Disney Infinity will be hitting stores on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and 3DS on August 18. It was originally slated for a June release, but it was delayed so the development team could make sure that it "sings and pops."
