Inside Inside Out

28/05/2015 4:56 PMdark52

Disney have released a trailer for the Inside Out Play Set giving us our first look at its distinct play style compared to the Star Wars Play Sets.

The Play Set is set inside Riley's mind after she "catches a glimpse of a scary movie as she is falling asleep". It will have a much greater focus on platforming than the Star Wars ones will do but it will still feature enemies you'll have to combat.

Game Informer has an article giving more details about the Play Set, including details on all the different abilities the characters possess.

In other news, a German retailer briefly published listings for several characters from Star Wars Rebels although the listings have since been removed.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Officially Revealed

Update: Reveal trailer and screenshots added:

Today Disney have finally officially unveiled their third entry to the Disney Infinity series, Disney Infinity 3.0 takes the focus to Star Wars. We'd seen in leaks the Starter Pack and some of the Disney Originals but now we have a much clearer idea of what the game will be about thanks to Game Informer.

The Play Set included in the Starter Pack will be called "Twilight of the Republic", featuring Anakin and Ahsoka as well as Obi-Wan, Yoda and Darth Maul. It is set around the time frame just after Episode II.

"Rise Against the Empire" is a mishmash of the original trilogy featuring Luke and Leia along with Chewbacca, Han Solo and Darth Vader toys. Apparently there aren't going to be restrictions on which of the Star Wars Play Sets the Star Wars characters can play in which is a welcome change to the odd Marvel restrictions of the last game.

A third Star Wars Play Set will be based on The Force Awakens but that will be released a little later on. There's confirmation of the Inside Out Play Set we saw in the leaks along with all of the other toys spotted on the back of the packaging Mulan, Olaf, Mickey, Minnie, Sam Flynn, Quorra and "more". And one more Play Set is mentioned, a Marvel one which has new toys for Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron and also "more".

If you live in the UK or Ireland you may be happy to hear that you will be able to buy a bundle of just the game disc and the Twilight of the Republic Play Set, so no need to get yet another base. You can even buy the game disc all by itself if you don't want the Play Set either.

And lastly good news for those who like Power Discs but don't much like the random nature of purchasing them, Blind Bags are no more. It will be clear exactly which Power Discs it is that you're buying for 3.0, they will also now be sold in packs of four.

Game Informer has a video showing a bit of behind the scenes with some screenshots of the game and a look at a few of the figures.
