If you are of the mind that Disney Infinity is set to be Disney’s take on the popular Skylanders games, you are probably right as the ideas are fascinatingly similar at their core. What most believe that Disney is betting on is that the Disney license itself is what will set Disney Infinity apart from the Skylanders games and make it all the more “magical” as they like to say. The current slate of characters and Disney properties set to be in the game so far are impressive, everything from Pirates of the Caribbean to their beloved Pixar films and others, but that might not be all that is in the game.
There are, without a doubt, some Disney properties which will be unveiled for the game in the future by the way of DLC and through promotions involving figurines, but two universes that fans have been clamoring for now are Marvel and Star Wars. Marvel is its own huge brand, with Disney owning Marvel Entertainment they could easily work Marvel characters into the mix. Star Wars recently came under the Disney fold and in an interview, the folks behind Disney Infinity discuss how excited they were about the acquisition and how Star Wars would make for a great fit into Disney Infinity.
