Star Wars Officially Announced as Part of Disney Infinity 3.0

By: Dominic Jones

We've been hearing about this for a while, but Game Informer has finally officially confirmed it, Disney Infinity 3.0 will feature Star Wars characters and playsets.  The game will feature characters from all across the saga including The Clone Wars.  According to Game Informer,

"Star Wars fandom is often divided between the two trilogies, and Disney Infinity 3.0 is catering to both audiences. Avalanche returns at the head of development while recruiting other studios to work on specific packs and systems. Ninja Theory’s (Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword) pack-in playset, Twilight of the Republic, follows Anakin and Ahsoka as they fight to uncover who’s behind a freshly minted droid army. The story is set after Star Wars: Episode II, and it features land and space battles with plenty of melee combat. Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Darth Maul can enter the fray, too, as separately sold figures. Studio Gobo’s (Disney Infinity's Pirates of the Caribbean playset) Rise Against the Empire is a highlight reel of sorts that follows the events of the classic trilogy. Luke and Leia tangle with Darth Vader and his forces through memorable sequences, including the battle of Yavin as well as time on Hoth and Tatooine. Chewbacca, Han Solo, and Darth Vader figures will be available individually. Star Wars characters can cross over between the Star Wars playsets, too, which could lead to some canonically unsound (but fun) scenarios."

Check out the preview of Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars below,

This looks very cool and like it will be a lot of fun for kids.  I'm also very pleased to see the game is covering all aspects of the saga, including the prequels, originals, and The Clone Wars, whereas certain other games are not.

UPDATE: StarWars.com has also confirmed that a new playste will be available this winter that will tie in to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens!
