Disney has found another way to capitalize on its popular animated and live-action characters: “Disney Universe,” a multiplayer game scheduled for a fall release.
From Disney Interactive entertainment:
In Disney Universe,
players can select from more than 40 classic and contemporary Disney
character costumes, including Alice (“Alice in Wonderland”), Mike
(“Monsters, Inc.”), TRON (“TRON: Legacy”) and Stitch (“Lilo &
Stitch”) to explore six different worlds inspired by legendary Disney
and DisneyPixar films. Each world will allow players to experience objectives and missions that follow Disney and DisneyPixar
movie storylines. Players will select a character-based costume, with
each costume offering a specific tool that changes and grows in power as
players adventure through the game. Disney Universe offers frenetic gameplay, multiplayer with up to three friends and slapstick humor that will appeal to players of all ages.
Disney Interactive announced the game as a release for Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii and XBox 360.
From the get go, Disney Interactive is also announced plans to sell a lot of DLC for this title. This writer has no objection to DLC as long as players get their money’s worth and aren’t nickled and dimed with small bits of content. Free advice to publishers: Bundle your DLC like a good PC expansion pack and customers will like you more.
