Disney's Infinity 3.0 to feature 'Zootopia' characters
Disney Infinity 3.0, the figure-based game featuring characters from most Disney properties, released August 30. The big news for most followers of video games and other such hobbyist pursuits is the addition of multiple characters from the Star Wars franchise, which follows version 2.0's inclusion of Marvel comics characters. For normal nerd and geek types, the thought of Luke Skywalker joining the Avengers is the kind of crossover normally reserved for fan-fiction, so the fact that this is really happening would be exciting, but we're furries. Our biggest hope for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens is that an Amaran appears long enough onscreen to gain an action figure.
More exciting for fans of anthropomorphic animals is the pair of, well, anthropomorphic animals Nick and Judy from the upcoming movie Zootopia (you might have heard something about it) as playable characters/collectible figurines. As the movie doesn't come out until March next year, the figures were not available at launch; there isn't actually a release date for them yet. YouTube footage of Judy and Nick has surfaced; note that the channel these videos appear on do not seem to be official Disney channels, so they may not be available for long.
A Zootopia "power disc pack," which will unlock content in the game will also become available eventually; a preview of some of the content available was taken down when it became obvious that they gave too much of the movie's ending away.
Disney Infinity 3.0 will be compatible with all previous Disney Infinity figurines; despite a large number of possible furry characters, the number of anthropomorphic animal characters is actually disappointingly small. Only three character figurines actively embodied both the terms "anthropomorphic" and "animal" before 3.0; Donald Duck, Agent P of Phineas and Ferb and Rocket Raccoon. Surprisingly, Mickey and Minnie Mouse are also new additions as of 3.0, though Mickey was available as the Sorceror's Apprentice from Fantasia in the original game.
