Star Wars expands Disney Infinity's universe

Disney Interactive made a big splash in the toys-to-life category with its barrier-breaking Disney Infinity, which allows players to use colorful figurines to interact with an array of Disney and Pixar characters in video game worlds. Then last year the company dialed up the action with Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes, which brought comic book heroes into the fray.

At E3 2015, the new Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition brings players even more epic experiences, thanks to the addition of the Star Wars universe, with figurines and play sets inspired by the classic films as well as by the new movie coming out this December.

Multiple play sets allow fans to transport familiar characters into game scenarios using the base peripheral included in the starter kit. That package comes with figurines and game missions based on the three prequel films, with an add-on set based on the original film trilogy. Yet another set will be tied into this year's highly anticipated film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

This is just the start of Disney Infinity 3.0, which also includes: a new Marvel Comics set based on Avengers: Age of Ultron; a new set for Disney/Pixar's Inside Out; and, several other classic Disney characters to be released as figurines. Developed by Avalanche Software, Disney Infinity 3.0 is due out this fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iOS, and Android.
