Disney Infinity, the virtual world builder that lets players create using their favorite Disney worlds and characters, is out today for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, Wii, and 3DS. Players can either use the Toy Box mode to create their own gameplay ideas or play through various Play Sets that have their own storylines and gameplay.  The starter pack retails for $74.99 and comes with the game software, Infinity Base, three character figures and Play Sets featuring the worlds of The Incredibles, Monsters University, and Pirates of the Caribbean, a Power Disc pack, and a trading card with a web code. The Lone Ranger and Cars Play Sets are available for $34.99 each. It’s a bit pricier than your average game, but looks like fun and it will be interesting to see if it can take off for Disney and become a success. A PC version is expected to launch sometime next year. Check below for full details and gameplay videos.

GLENDALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Disney Interactive today launched the company’s largest and most ambitious gaming initiative to date, Disney Infinity for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 system, Wii U™ system, Wii™ system and Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system. The starter pack features the game software, the Infinity Base, three character figures and Play Sets inspired by the worlds of The Incredibles, Monsters University and Pirates of the Caribbean, one Power Disc pack, a trading card with a web code and countless hours of creative play in the groundbreaking Toy Box mode.

“Disney Infinity allows players the creative freedom to bring to life original adventures that are only limited by their own imaginations,” said John Pleasants, co-president, Disney Interactive. “We are excited to see how our Guests will combine Disney and Pixar characters to create all new stories that they can share with friends and family across gaming systems.”

In a way that only Disney can, each Disney Infinity character figure will come to life and play together in a virtual “Toy Box,” where they can build and customize their own unique virtual worlds using their favorite characters, vehicles, settings and more. The game also includes story-driven experiences, called “Play Sets,” which allow players to solve challenging puzzles, battle enemies and explore iconic locations from famous Disney properties.

Disney Infinity is available now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Unique play experiences are available for Wii and 3DS systems, and on mobile devices. The Disney Infinity starter pack carries a suggested retail price of $74.99 and all versions are rated “E10+” by the ESRB.
