For starters, Disney Infinity is a game where you can use any Disney Infinity figures to unlock that specific character and become playable in the game, and the figures are quite detailed that they can be also a collector’s item, a toy and game combination that became popular after the release of Activision’s Skylanders game franchise.

In a Q&A portion, we asked if there is a possibility for some classic Disney morning cartoon characters to be immortalized in Disney Infinity in the future, although there won’t be any release for 3.0, Disney might consider in the future, other questions from the media also include if there would be a collaboration project with Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts series, Jason mentioned that at the recent D23 Expo, an exclusive Power Disc was given away at the event which unlocks the King Mickey costume from the Kingdom Hearts series, and you can acquire the Keyblade as an Ultimate Unlock if you unlock all Disney Infinity characters in the game’s Hall of Heroes.
