Add two more to the Disney Infinity 2.0 roster. The same game that's giving us a huge collection of Marvel superheroes and Playsets (story-based campaigns), along with a number of classic Disney favorites like Donald Duck, Tinkerbell, Stitch and Maleficent, has announced two more characters for the game.
This fall, Disney is releasing its next animated motion picture, called "Big Hero 6," which just happens to be based on an obscure Marvel comics property. More in the vein of "Wreck-It Ralph" than "Frozen," the film sees a team of six superheroes taking on a big baddie in the fictional city of San Fransokyo. The trailers for the film that have been released so far have highlighted two main characters: young tech prodigy Hiro Hamada, and his robotic best friend Baymax.
As you've probably guessed, Hiro and Baymax are the two just-announced characters coming to Disney Infinity 2.0. Hiro wears a power suit that seems to give him the ability to conjure spike things out of the ground (which may or may not be related to the "Microbots" that will be seen in the movie) to attack his enemies with. Baymax is a mighty robot with the power of flight, strength and who-knows-what-else.
According to the trailer, both characters will be available to purchase sometime this fall. It's unknown if their release will coincide with the game itself on September 23, or if Hiro and Baymax might arrive at a later date. "Big Hero 6" the movie will be in theaters starting November 7, 2014.
Sadly, the "Big Hero 6" duo are compatible only with the game's Toy Box mode. And that means Avalanche Software and Disney Interactive are not creating a "Big Hero 6" Playset. A hexagonal power disc will be available from the movie, though, empowering players with something called "Chem Capsules."
