Disney Interactive took advantage of E3 this week with the announcement that Spider-Man is officially coming to Disney Infinity 2.0 in a brand new Play Set. Spidey joins a cast of Marvel Super Heroes and beloved Disney characters, in a game that was one of the highlights of the show floor.
Of course, Spidey will also be fully playable in Toy Box 2.0, and he’s bringing some friends.
The Spider-Man Play Set for Disney Infinity tracks the story of the Green Goblin, on his quest to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. for good. He’s captured Venom, extracted elements and started to clone symbiotes from him. He’s hired Mysterio to be his second in command, and the three of them are wreaking havoc on the Marvel Universe.
Your task – of course – is to take to the sewers, labs and skies above Manhattan as you face off with the spreading symbiotes, and take on Mysterio and Green Goblin. Playable characters include Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Iron Fist, Nova and Venom, while White Tiger, Black Cat and Luke Cage also make an appearance.
The Play Set also adds new toys to the Toy Box, including the S.H.I.E.L.D. Hover Car, S.H.I.E.L.D. Sky Cycle, and Daily Bugle building.
Want to go hang out with Spidey? You won’t have to wait long – the Spider-Man Play Set for Disney Infinity hits retail stores in Spring (that is, somewhere around September). There will be more Play Sets and characters announced between now and then, but the game’s already off to a great start.
