At last week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Disney Interactive Studios showed off three new games releasing later this year. I was excited to drop by their E3 booth and try out some of the games myself – and I brought back a glimpse into each game for Disney Parks Blog readers!
First, I got to “test-fly” Kinect: Disneyland Adventures with Kudo Tsunoda, general manager and creative director for Microsoft Game Studios. Available this holiday season, the game uses Xbox Kinect technology to allow the player to explore Disneyland park, step into adventures based on park attractions and interact with characters like Mickey Mouse and Cinderella. Tsunoda explained that the focus of the game is to “really deliver an authentic Disneyland experience into people’s homes.”
Next I played Disney Universe with Disney Interactive Studios Producer Mark Orgel. Disney Universe mixes characters and stories from across many Disney and Disney•Pixar films. Players can “suit up” as different characters and team up to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. The game releases this Fall for all major consoles.
Finally, Disney Interactive Studios Assistant Producer Corey Valencia and I played the upcoming multi-platform game Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension. Inspired by the upcoming Disney Channel original movie, this game allows you to play as your favorite character from the series. We played it on the PlayStation Move, which allowed for a few extra abilities – although I really enjoyed the Carbonator, which fires orange soda at enemies. The game will be available later this Summer.
