Despite previously being relegated to appearing in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes as a “Team Up” character on a power disc, Disney Interactive (via Variety) has announced today that Guardians of the Galaxy character Yondu will be a playable character in the game with his own figurine. In addition, Captain America’s partner Sam Wilson, AKA The Falcon, will become available as a playable character sometime next year.
The outlet also reports that with just 12 days to go before the release of the game, the top three pre-selling characters are none other than Rocket Raccoon, Venom and Groot. Which character are you excited to play as in the upcoming game?
Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes features more than 20 new interactive figures from across the Marvel universe, original storylines penned by award-wining Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis, and an all-new Toy Box mode that makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and mini-games with family and friends. In addition, all characters and power discs from last year’s release of Disney Infinity will be compatible with the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Toy Box.
Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC and iOS tablets and smart phones on September 23.
