Earlier this week, Disney revealed that both Maleficent and Merida will be part of Disney Infinity 2.0 and today we have an official trailer featuring both characters in action along with some official press information that was sent to us including a look at both figures.
Disney Interactive officially announced today the latest playable characters to appear in the 2.0 Edition of Disney Infinity – Merida and Maleficent.
Merida and Maleficent are playable in the all-new Toy Box 2.0 mode of the game, along with all characters previously released for Disney Infinity. Players will be able to use both characters, plus hundreds of Disney-themed items, locations, props and vehicles, to create new adventures in customised worlds.
A new asset pack includes Merida and Maleficent character images and action screenshots showing the two characters in the Toy Box 2.0 mode.
Key highlights include:
•Merida: With her untamed fiery red locks, this headstrong Disney•Pixar Princess will definitely leave her mark in Disney Infinity. Between her sharp sword and bow combo attacks with ricocheting arrows, she can upgrade her aim with elemental freeze arrows, freezing enemies in front of her then following up with rapid shots showing off her impressive athletic skills as an archer and sword fighter.
•Maleficent: The wicked title character from the upcoming Walt Disney Studios film employs numerous magical powers and can attack using her magic in melee and ranged combat. To defeat enemies, Maleficent has the ability to utilise projectile and area of effect attacks that affect multiple targets within a specified area, brambles that she summons from the ground and ravens that she can call on to attack targets.
Both Merida and Maleficent will be available in retail stores this fall. Additional Play Sets and characters will be announced in the coming months.
