Loyal fans of Disney Infinity will remember the compatibility confusions that came with Disney Infinity 2.0. Well, fortunately Disney Interactive have tried to make things clearer, there are still limits but most of these come from restrictions with the actual console platforms, rather than the game software.

You can read all about compatibility in Disney Infinity right here.


All Star Wars characters will be cross-compatible, meaning you can play characters such as Anakin Skywalker who will be released with the Twilight of the Republic Play Set, will also be playable in the Rise against the Empire Play Set. In most cases you will be able to collect crossover coins in-game to unlock the ability to play various Star Wars characters in each different Play Set.

Forward compatibility

All Disney Infinity characters from the original game and from 2.0 will be playable in Disney Infinity 3.0 Toy Box. However, what is not playable are the Play Sets from 2.0 & 1.0 – to play these you will need to insert the game software which was initially intended for the Play Set. For example, Marvel The Avengers Play Set & Disney Infinity 2.0 game software or The Incredibles Play Set and Disney Infinity 1.0 game software.

All Disney Infinity power discs are compatible with 3.0 – this includes 1.0 & 2.0.

Back compatibility

As with Disney Infinity 2.0, there is no backwards compatibility with 3.0 – you will need the 3.0 game software to play 3.0 Play Sets, to play in the Toy Box 3.0 and to play with any of the 3.0 figures.
