Disney Interactive and Marvel Launch Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes

Disney Interactive and Marvel launched Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes -- the follow up to last year's new hybrid toy /video game of 2013. The game is available for the PlayStation(R) 4 and PlayStation(R) 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Wii U(TM) system from Nintendo. The Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack features the 2.0 game software, the Disney Infinity 2.0 Base, Marvel's The Avengers Play Set with three character figures (Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor), two Toy Box Game Discs, a web code card and countless hours of creative play in the all-new Toy Box 2.0. Marvel's Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy Play Sets, along with additional figures from those worlds, will be sold separately. All characters and Power Discs from last year's release of Disney Infinity are compatible with Toy Box 2.0. The new game introduces interactive Super Hero figures from across the Marvel universe with original Play Set storylines written with the help of Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis. Each new character brings a variety of super-powered and unique gameplay mechanics such as flying, web slinging, wall crawling, wall smashing and more. An improved Toy Box 2.0 mode makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and games with family and friends using their favorite Marvel and Disney characters, vehicles, settings and items. New and enhanced Toy Box tools and toys will make the groundbreaking game mode even more accessible for players of all ages. Toy Box Game Discs deliver new structured gameplay modes to the Toy Box where players can engage in classic Dungeon Crawler and Tower Defense gameplay using any character from across the Disney Infinity universe. Developed by Avalanche Software, the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack carries a suggested retail price of $74.99 and all versions are rated "E-10+" by the ESRB. The Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy Play Sets are available separately for a suggested retail price of $34.99. Individual character figures are available for a suggested retail price of $13.99 and blind Power Disc packs for $4.99.

Activision Publishing, Inc. and Marvel Entertainment Reveal The Amazing Spider-Man 2(TM) Video Game

Activision Publishing, Inc. and Marvel Entertainment, LLC revealed The Amazing Spider-Man 2(TM) video game is planned to launch next spring, alongside the Sony Pictures Entertainment feature film of the same name. Developed by Beenox, the same game studio behind 2012's original hit The Amazing Spider-Man(TM), this all-new third-person action-adventure video game builds on the story of the previous game with an alternative take on the events of the upcoming movie, while also giving players an enhanced, free-roaming web-slinging experience through a greatly expanded New York City. In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, players once again assume the role of the iconic Super Hero in a unique side-story inspired by the feature film but set in its own continuity. Throughout his journey, Spider-Man will encounter a number of new foes as well as some old friends, as he confronts a new threat to his beloved city. The narrative will give Peter Parker, Spider-Man's nerdy photojournalist persona, a greater role in the spotlight, as he investigates the complicated motivations and unique personalities behind the menagerie of Marvel menaces threatening Manhattan.
