Ever since Disney Infinity was announced, fans have been clamoring for their favorites to join the game as playable characters. It is great to see influences of various properties throughout the game, through weapons, themes, and vehicles, but it is something special to control your favorite character. For many, that character is Donald Duck, and Disney Interactive has now confirmed that he will be joining Disney Infinity 2.0! Get a closer look at his figurine, and see how he looks in-game by checking out the brand new trailer featuring him after the break.
It is not difficult to see that the developers at Avalanche are huge fans themselves of Disney and its wide variety of characters. One view of the trailer above and you will catch Donald in his Musketeer costume, first seen 10 years ago in the direct-to-DVD film, The Three Musketeers. His grumpy nature has always differentiated him from the more happy-go-lucky Mickey, and has also gathered quite a large fanbase.
Some had feared that Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, as the second game is called, would focus too heavily on Marvel and leave classic Disney characters off to the side. That has turned out to be far from the the truth, as just last week we saw Aladdin and Jasmine join the cast of playable characters. We already have more classic Disney characters than the first Disney Infinity had, and announcements keep rolling in.
Take a look above at the physical figure for Donald which will definitely be a collectible among fans. Below is the “All In One” Power Disc which will be usable in the Toy Box mode of the game. It allows Donald to change into his Three Musketeers costume:
In addition to images alongside the just-announced Aladdin and Jasmine, we get a look at how Donald will interact with other Disney characters in the Toy Box mode:
