Disney Universe, a new game featuring characters and worlds from animated and live-action films by Disney Animation, Pixar and Disney Pictures, has shipped today for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. A PC version is also available.
Disney Universe offers four-person multiplayer with gameplay that’s appropriate for kids but compelling enough for adults as well. The game features 45 classic and contemporary characters inspired by well-known and legendary properties including WALL*E, Monsters Inc., Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King and Aladdin.
Players will be able to journey to the enchanted city of Agrabah, sail the high seas in Jack Sparrow’s beloved Pirate ship, or witness the majesty of Pride Rock as they suit-up to battle some of the most fearsome villains in the Disney catalog, all while using special power-ups that change and expand in influence as the game continues on.
Additional costumes for the in-game characters include Sam Flynn, Quorra and Clu (from TRON); Baloo (from The Jungle Book); Ariel (The Little Mermaid); Sulley (Monsters, Inc.); Nemo (Finding Nemo); and everyone’s favorite fairy, Tinker Bell (from Peter Pan). Dozens of other character costumes are also featured, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald.
The first Disney Universe DLC will be available in November: the Disney Villains Costume Pack. This DLC will include five new character costumes based on Cruella de Vil (101 Dalmations), Hades (Hercules), Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), The Evil Queen (Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs) and Ursula (The Little Mermaid). Individual costumes will be available for download for $0.99 each on PSN or 80 Microsoft Points each on Xbox Live. The complete package will be available for $2.99 on PSN or 240 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.
