D23 Expo 2015 Disney Interactive Panel | 7 New Games
Confession. I am a gaming nerd. Growing up sandwiched between 2 brothers, there was absolutely NO way I was escaping that realm. So you can imagine the gaming excitement for everyone (or just me) to be sitting in the D23 Expo 2015 Disney Interactive Panel. Basically, it was the gaming mecca presentation for Disney gaming nerds. My people. Then one after the other, new Disney gaming announcements made. Eyes growing wider…yes. So I have your 7 New Games and Must Haves that came out the of the Disney Interactive Presentation. Get those Christmas Wish Lists ready.
1. Kingdom Hearts 3
Man I feel old. Kingdom Hearts 3. I remember the release of Kingdom Hearts in 2002. 13 years, WOW! As with any video game sequel, you know that Disney has uped the ante for fans in this November 2015 release. Been in production for over 2 years, this game is going to be EPIC.
The biggest reveal at the D23 Expo was the intro of a whole new Big Hero 6 world. WORLD, folks. And, that includes the world behind the portal. You can follow Baymax right where the movie leaves off! Also revealed was that ALL Keyblades will include transformations.
2. Disney Magic Kingdoms Mobile App
Love having Disney gaming on the go? The newest app, Disney Magic Kingdoms is for you! Create your own Disney park of your dreams with this awesome app. Attractions include: California Screamin, the Castle, Space Mountain, and Toon Town and will be available for iOS, Android and Windows phones.
I felt pretty on top of things when Disney Playmation was introduced at the panel. Already having our private Playmation demo, I’m so ready for the Avengers set to be released this October!
4. Star Wars Battle Pod
The next big thing in arcade gaming? Insert Star Wars Battle Pod. This 360 gaming experience included the presentation of the actual pod on stage for the first time. The 180 gaming screen plus hydraulic seat lifters put you right in the middle of the action. Choose between playing as the Rebels of the Republic. My son has already asked for one for Christmas.
5. Star Wars Battlefront
2 of the biggest gaming names come together for this award-winning game. Star Wars Battlefront, made by EA and Disney feature a major WOW factor in gaming graphics and game play. Seeing it live on the screen was definitely exhilarating. Announced at D23, if you pre-order now, The Battle of Jakku will be included FREE.
6. Darth Vader Playstation 4
Ok, so not actually a game, but pretty much the coolest gaming system I’ve seen in a long time. Talk about a collector’s item, the all new Darth Vader Playstation 4 is coming out this year and features a pretty sweet looking Darth Vader on the cover and inspired controller. Will include voucher for 4 FREE Star Wars Classics Games. There will also be 2 Limited Edition Darth Vader PlayStation 4 bundles — Star Wars: Battlefront and Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars.
7. Disney Infinity 3.0
The biggest highlight of the presentation was the long anticipated Disney Infinity 3.0. Lots of great new characters will be joining the party this year.
Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set, a HUGE number of Star Wars characters (including Light Up X Figures with light up lightsabers and The Force Awakens Play Set), Spot from The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out figures also revealed.
Announced to thunderous applause, Sora’s Keyblade will be the ultimate unlock of Infinity 3.0.
Ending the presentation, surprise guests Daisy Ridley and John Boyega from Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit the stage. Introducing their new Star Wars Infinity figures, they autographed and gave out their figures to little gaming fans! Seriously so adorable!
Whew! With all of this highly anticipated gaming excitement from this panel, there certainly will be lots of happy Disney gaming fans this season! So happy to attend this amazing D23 Expo Disney Interactive Panel this year!
