Over the past couple of months we have had a number of different retailers post information about another Disney Infinity 2.0 starter pack being released, themed around the Disney side, rather than focusing on the Marvel Super Heroes. We have seen leaks via both Wal-Mart and Argos, but both retailers took these starter packs down off their websites. We even reported that there was a Disney starter pack on the Toys R Us database. However until they are officially confirmed by Disney, we still have to put this news in the rumour pile.
However today, a listing on the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board) adds more fuel to these rumours with some details about a Disney Infinity 2.0 starter pack, called the Disney Infinity : Toy Box Bundle Pack.
What is interesting about this listing is the wording, so far this is the third name we have seen, we have seen Originals, Legends and now Toy Box Bundle. These could all be different starter packs, being named differently in different regions or simply Disney haven’t confirmed the title yet. So at the moment, we still have to take this information as rumour, until officially revealed by Disney.
Also another retailer, EB Games in Australia has listed the following information on a PS4 Collectors Edition listing, under the compatibility section it says “* The Video Game Software in the Disney Infinity 2.0: Collector’s Edition / Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack / Toy Box Combo Pack is identical.”
Another strong indicator that the Disney side of Infinity 2.0 is going to be more Toy Box centric, is how the word Toy Box has been positioned into the title, but until Disney make an official announcement, its all still a guess.
It is important to note that anything released for 2.0 will work for any starter pack or digital version, this Disney starter pack is just aimed at people who aren’t interested in Marvel, but the option of picking up the Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy play sets or figures is still available. Everything in the Disney Starter pack is expected to be made available separately so anyone who purchases the Marvel or Digital versions.
Here are some of the details from the ESRB website for this listing:
Content Descriptors: Cartoon Violence
Other: Includes online features that may expose players to unrated user-generated content (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Rating Summary: This is an action-adventure game in which players control Disney/Pixar/Marvel characters through toy environments to compete in several challenges (e.g., tower defense, rescue missions, player vs. player battles). Players use an assortment of “cartoony” weapons (e.g., plastic-cap pistols/blasters, vehicle-mounted turrets, oversized machine guns) to defeat enemies in battle. Combat is highlighted by explosions and laser/gun fire. Characters break into toy pieces and disappear when defeated.
