There is a new playset coming coming which, while it is within the Marvel Superhero sphere of Disney Infinity, has been rumoured to be a bit different to previous playsets. A new set of power discs has been announced and that also has the wi-fi type symbol on the packaging but it also has the words, “internet required for content update.” There will be a playset pack available too but it has not got a picture of the packaging as yet so we don’t know who the second character in it will be. Captain America was announced a few months back (unmasked) and it is assumed that he will be one of the characters in this pack. From the characters named for release, it sounds to me like this will be based around the upcoming Captain America movie so I would expect the second character to be from the movie too. It has been suggested that it would be Scarlet Witch but I think that it might be another existing character in a new outfit – Falcon or even another Iron Man. I would prefer a new character though and not another “new suit” version of an existing character. My main reason for this is, and this is one of the new differences for this playset, is that they have said that all the previous Marvel characters will be playable in this playset! So why create a new character that is really an old character in a new suit? Just add a totally new character and use the old character as they already are. If you want to change a suit, use a power disc as you already have done, several times. Also, we’ve already seen the ability to use other characters in the Star Wars playsets through the character coins, and previous Marvel playsets with the crossover coins. So this isn’t a really new idea, but one that just makes total sense when you look at the fact that these characters are all found in the same universe, be it in the comics, cartoons or movies.
The other main difference I have heard, is that it will be four player capable as ‘local’. How can they do this? I’m guessing you need two bases plugged in. I’m looking forward to this and I hope they can somehow do an update to allow this to work with previous playsets too. The backwards compatibility of the playset to previous version characters is also a great idea. It might mean that a Frozen playset may still be added later, or new playsets for other characters like Phineas, Tron, Aladdin, Mulan, Hiro & Baymax, Merida etc. Or even, as a sequel movie is released, a new playset based on the new movie ie the Incredibles 2 is in production and isn’t there another Pirates movie coming?
A move like this would just give the game what it’s name implies, infinite possibilities.
