John Vignocchi here with a quick update on an announcement you might have heard about earlier today…
I’m happy to share that the full Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition console experience will be available on the new Apple TV later this year. The game will be available through a special Apple TV starter pack, with a similar configuration to the one offered for consoles, including the Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano figures, a new “MFi” controller, and a wireless Disney Infinity 3.0 bluetooth base! We’ll have additional details on this starter pack to share soon.
We are honored to have worked closely with Apple over the past few months to deliver a console–quality experience for this exciting new device. We can’t wait for fans — old and new — to give it a try when it releases later this year.
It’s a pretty big deal that a major game that has appeal across many ages will be available on Apple TV. I am not a big gamer and I will not be getting a next-gen gaming system but Apple TV is now definitely on my radar. It’s interesting too that this version will have a wireless base. I’m excited to see that.
Our fearless leader and his family are enjoying Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars thus far and we’re all eagerly awaiting additional play sets that are coming soon. Stay posted for more information as it comes!
