Today Disney released exclusive details and images of the first Disney Infinity Star Wars playset, Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic. This playset takes place in the Clone Wars/Prequel Trilogy era, and features characters like Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul. As mentioned previously, Disney Infinity will release three sets to start, each featuring different eras of our favorite universe.
Check out details images and more information below:
The images provide a great detailed look at the first wave of figures. I don’t play video games, but these will be impossible to resist. As a collector, I’m not in any way a completist; however, I might be hard pressed to resist getting nearly every figure in this line. All five of the figures released above, as well as the images of Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewie we saw before, look absolutely amazing. I think Ahsoka is the standout figure of the 1st wave. Her look is just perfect. She looks confident, strong and ready to fight. Now onto the gameplay images:
This just looks like a TON of fun. Like Ahsoka (who doesn’t)? Like podracing? How about podracing WITH Ahsoka? I love the action shot of Ob-Wan facing off against the Tuskens. Admittedly, some of the images are a little goofy. I think Anakin in particular looks a bit off. All the other characters look pretty great but I’m not loving Anakin’s rendering. But overall this looks like an incredibly fun game that will allow you to play through the Star Wars universe across different eras. I wish my kid was old enough so that we could play together.
New Assets and Information Released For Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition’s
Star Wars™: Twilight of the Republic Play Set
Avalanche Software and Ninja Theory Partner to Deliver Star Wars™ Gameplay
Experience That Brings Lightsaber™ Duels to a New Level
BURBANK, Calif. – (May 26, 2014) Disney Interactive today released new assets and information for Star Wars™: Twilight of the Republic, one of the three Star Wars™ Play Sets to be released for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition this year. Developed by Ninja Theory, in partnership with Avalanche Software, the game is set to deliver an authentic family-friendly Star Wars game experience with enhanced combat system.
Set during the latter years of the Clone Wars, players will travel to four locations and explore open worlds of Tatooine and Coruscant, battle droids in Geonosis and partake in an epic boss battle in Naboo. Along the way, players will use the Force™ and master their Lightsaber™ skills as they fight alongside Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda to save the Republic and defeat the Separatists.
Each Jedi character is given specialized Force combat abilities and Force finishing moves, as well as unique Lightsaber forms with powerful combo attacks. As Jedi Master Yoda, for example, players will leap into action with his agile and acrobatic prowess. Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano uses her lightning-fast dual Lightsabers to carve up Battledroids, while Darth Maul uses his double-bladed Lightsaber and power in the dark side of the Force in a death-defying duel against the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The Star Wars™: Twilight of the Republic Play Set is included in the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack available this fall for $64.99, which also includes the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Base, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices. The game is rated E10+ by the ESRB and will be available this fall.
Two additional Star Wars Play Sets will be available for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition this holiday, including Star Wars™: Rise Against the Empire and Star Wars™: The Force Awakens. In addition, players will be able to unlock the ability for all Star Wars characters to play inside all of the Star Wars Play Sets, as well as in the newly enhanced Toy Box, along with all characters previously released for Disney Infinity.
