Nintendo’s third-party partners are bringing an array of games to the Wii U home console, including new games and exclusive information from Disney and Ubisoft.
Disney Interactive is bringing Disney’s Planes, a flying adventure video game inspired by the upcoming Disney animated comedy adventure film, exclusively to Nintendo platforms.
The game will be available for the Wii U and Wii consoles as well as the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS hand-held systems on Aug. 6, just a few days prior to the film’s Aug. 9 opening in theaters.
Disney is also bringing Disney Infinity to Wii U, Wii and Nintendo 3DS on Aug. 18. Disney Infinity is Disney’s new gaming platform that combines Disney’s franchises with interactive figures that come to life in the game.
Players can place real-world toy versions of their favorite Disney characters onto a device called the Infinity Base and transport them into the virtual game worlds of Monsters University, The Incredibles, Cars and Pirates of the Caribbean, as well as into a giant Toy Box.
