My boys were (are) huge fans of Disney Infinity. When they started playing it when it first came out, they seriously thought it was the coolest game ever. My one son did say to me, “Wouldn’t it be cool if they made a Spider-Man for Disney Infinity?” Indeed, I thought it would be, but didn’t see the likelihood of that happening back when it was first released.
Apparently, he is not the only one to think that it would be cool to have Spider-Man included in the Disney Infinity universe, as tomorrow Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes comes to store shelves everywhere! You can only imagine how happy he was to hear of this news. In fact, I’ve been hearing about it for months. Every little update or news release that has come out, he has quickly turned around to share the news with me. It has been very much anticipated to see what it would be like and to get his hands on a copy of the game to play.
Well, he no longer needs to wait to find out what it is like because we received a copy to check out* before it was released! This was the package to end all packages. Opening up that box was like Christmas had arrived in September. Inside was everything he would need to try out the game exactly the way it was meant to be played.
We received a copy on XBox 360 and immediately got to playing! Everything you loved about the first Disney Infinity is here but so much more. Same type of game play that they really enjoy. We love Disney characters, but in a house full of boys, super heroes is where it’s at. So to have a platform to free play with everything Marvel is more than awesome! There is so much that can be done with Disney Infinity 2.0 and my boys are in heaven playing it. Brand new Marvel locations, Toy Box and games make this game so much fun. The original stories for the game were written with the help of award winning Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis. So my kids are thrilled with the authenticity of super hero play. Everything you need to play the game comes standard in the starter pack:
- 3 Marvel Super Heroes Figures (Iron Man, Thor and Black Widow)
- 1 Disney Infinity Base (2.0 edition)
- 2 Toy Box Game Discs
- 1 Marvel’s The Avenger’s Play Set piece.
While you don’t need anything extra to play the game, it’s fun to add to your collection. Power discs enhance the game with customization and personalization, which my kids love spending time doing. This is what makes the game so fun, the game changes with whatever you add to it. We are so excited to add to those as they become available, as there are 80 new discs coming out!
Starting tomorrow, there is a whole lot of characters being released that will make your game play virtually endless. Then a second wave in early November will add even more characters. There’s not a character we don’t love, as we are huge Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Spider-Man fans here. Although, Iron Man and Spider-Man are probably the ultimate favorites, the other characters are not far behind. Here is something that my boys and I both like, you can actually use Disney Infinity 1.0 characters and saves from your Disney Infinity 1.0 game and they can play on 2.0! I love when items you have purchased don’t become obsolete with the latest version of the product!
This is definitely at the top of the list of must-have holiday gifts this year, so it would be wise to pick up your copy and characters right away! It gets two big thumbs up from my kids and I know your kids (as well as teens and parents, too!) will love it.
You can find a copy of Disney Infinity 2.0 on XBox One, XBox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Wii platforms at major retailers everywhere. You can also learn more about this awesome game on their website.

My boys have been desperately waiting for this!! They keep asking if it has been released yet and super heroes we plan on getting first and if I think HULK will be included (I can now tell them yes)! I think I’m going to get them the starter set and then let santa handle the rest 🙂
I have not heard of this yet.. i am sure my son is going to want it though..
My kids would love to have this for our Wii. It looks like a great game.
Looks super fun…seems like a set I’m going to see on my Son’s Holiday Wish List =D
This sounds like a great game for those who love to play! I am glad to hear that #1 can be transferred–
The kids must have gone crazy with this!
My son would go crazy over these, too! Awesome package you got here. 🙂
Sounds like Disney Infinity games are fun and interesting. Science Direct, a leading scientific database republished a study that shows that gamers report a higher sense of well being than non-gamers as they grow. All these games would definitely be at the top of the list and it is going to be the best holiday gifts of this year.
How fun! My son would LOVE that! I’m going to have to look into it! Christmas is coming up! That would be the perfect gift!
My kids have been asking for Disney Infinity and I was thinking about getting it for them for Christmas this year. It sounds like something they’d love.
My son is so excited about all things Xfinity. Thanks for the review, we look forward to getting it.
Wow, you are super lucky to have gotten to try it! 😀
Looks so funnnnn!!!!
Wow this looks so fun! I’m sure the kids will love it
Those look fun! My kiddos will want for sure!
This looks like a really nice game. The figurines also is worth collecting.
I’ve been meaning to play Disney Infinity with my little guy! We just have to get around to actually purchasing it! Perhaps for Christmas for him! If so, I’m definitely going to be getting the Marvel super heroes pack! He’s absolutely obsessed with super heroes these days!
Wow! Lucky you and your boys! I wish we live closer… 🙂
I’ve heard so many good things about this game. I know my son would love!
Wow, it indeed looks Christmas there! I am really hoping for more characters, I don’t think my daughter has seen the Avengers. 😉 It’s always nice to see kids having a great time playing with toys they like! 🙂
Woo Hoo! My grandsons are going to go bonkers over this I’m sure. I have six grandsons and four granddaughters.
My nephew would so love this game. I will have to share this with my sister her son is so into Marvel stuff. Thanks for sharing.
my daughter would really love this, she loves superheros.
This looks so awesome. I bet my kiddos would love this!
My nephew would love this and I hadn’t even heard about it before. Thanks so much for posting!
I’ve been stoked for this for a wile but I heard that it isn’t as full featured as the first. Apparently there’s only one playset in the starter kit instead of three like last time. That said, i think the characters this time around are far more interesting!
I can totally imagine how excited your sons must have been when this package arrived in the mail. Glad your sons enjoyed it. 🙂
Looks fun, I hadn’t heard of it til now. We are big gamers in our house
My daughter just talked about infinity game last night and she wants it for christmas …
This looks like such a fun game for the kids. Your sons must have had a fit when you showed this to them!
So happy he got to try out this game. Looks like a lot of fun!
This is going to be great! My younger kids have mentioned this. Thank God it’s almost Christmas time and I can bribe them to behave better
My son’s not old enough yet to be into characters and games, but it sounds like yours had great fun.
I’ve never heard of this before. What exactly do the figures do?
My kids have been begging for Disney Infinity for a while now. Even more so that Marvel joined the mix. Hubs & I are seriously considering it all as Christmas gifts.
Great Christmas idea..and like michellemotm asked, what exactly do the figures do?
There is a base that comes with the game. Place the figures on the game and it unlocks characters and gameplay specific to those figures. The power discs can enhance backgrounds, powers, or accessories. So each new character you get unlocks an entire new facet to the game. Really cool!
Poor me, While I was reading this article, my nephew poked in and now he is throwing tantrums to get Disney Infinity
