As part of this month’s GameInformer exclusives, they discussed the new Toy Box games that will be coming in Disney Infinity 3.0 – Toy Box Speedway & Toy Box Takeover.
Interestingly, whilst both games have been developed with the same engine used for the Toy Box, an average Disney Infinity player would not be able to re-create these games. When compared to the Toy Box games in 2.0 Escape from the Kyln & Assault on Asgard which were built entirely using the in-game creation tools, the 3.0 games offer a refined user experience. They will be available as separate Toy Box game discs and only playable with the Disney Infinity 3.0 game software.
So, what makes Toy Box Speedway so different?
Since the early days of Disney Infinity 1.0 driving has been an essential part of the game, from the Cars Play Set to the various Toy Box games that were developed using ramps and racing tracks. However, what we have all noticed is the driving experience has lacked some what and the team at Avalanche wanted to make it better.
Toy Box Speedway is a racing based Toy Box game that infuses the gaming style of Mario Kart in to a Disney Infinity world, giving you complete realm over characters & vehicles from the enormous Disney Infinity roster.
To create this new driving experience, Avalanche brought on board Sumo Digital, who have a long list of history developing racing genre games, including Sonic & Sega All-Stars as well as Forza Horizon 2.
The aim was to make Disney Infinity’s new Toy Box game as entertaining as Mario Kart and from the gameplay videos it appears they may have indeed succeeded.
With Toy Box Speedway you will get the chance to race across various themes, including Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph & various Star Wars tracks.
