Earlier this week, the Disney Interactive team teased us with an image of Merida, stating “Bring on the Brave.” We already knew the character would be in the upcoming Disney Infinity 2.0, as she was spotted for a moment in last month’s trailer for the game, along with Maleficent and Stitch.

On Wednesday evening, the developers held a sneak preview for D23 members in San Francisco of Merida and Maleficent joining the game



Below are images, character descriptions and the brand new trailer.


Merida: With her untamed fiery red locks, this headstrong Princess will definitely leave her mark in Disney Infinity. Between her sharp sword and bow combo attacks with ricocheting arrows, she can upgrade her aim with elemental freeze arrows, freezing enemies in front of her then following up with rapid shots showing off her impressive athletic skills as an archer and sword fighter.


Maleficent: The wicked title character from the upcoming Walt Disney Studios film employs numerous magical powers and can attack using her magic in melee and ranged combat. To defeat enemies, Maleficent has the ability to utilize projectile and area of effect attacks that affect multiple targets within a specified area, brambles that she summons from the ground and ravens that she can call on to attack targets.

Neil Gaiman Announces His First Video Game, Wayward Manor


Critically-acclaimed, best-selling author Neil Gaiman (“The Ocean at the End of the Lane,” “The Sandman” series of graphic novels, “American Gods,” “The Graveyard Book” and “Coraline”) today announced the launch of his first-ever video game, Wayward Manor. Set in a 1920s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, Wayward Manor players unravel the mystery of a ghost (player) seeking a peaceful after-life. After a remarkable cast of characters moves into Wayward Manor and wakes him from his post-mortem slumbers, the ghost must find ever-more inventive and brilliant ways to scare them away. As the ghost learns more about the living characters, he also learns more about his own death and after-life, and the danger they are all facing. Wayward Manor will be available just in time for the holidays on PC, Mac, and tablets.


“For quite a while there’s been a story that I’ve wanted to tell, something inspired by the kinds of films that I loved when I was a kid,” said Gaiman. “But I kept running into the same problem: it didn’t really feel like a novel. It felt like something that you would have to experience yourself. So today, I’m proud to announce my first-ever game, Wayward Manor.”

Wayward Manor is being developed by The Odd Gentleman (The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom), an award-winning independent video game studio, in conjunction with Moonshark, a game publisher co-founded by Creative Artists Agency (CAA). The release is supported by a unique, exclusive presale campaign, offering rewards for fans including limited-edition merchandise, the opportunity to name a game character, and even a private dinner with Gaiman, among others. Presale orders are now being accepted at www.WhoHauntsNeil.com.

Interactive Entertainment announces the Man of Steel game for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, as well as Android smartphones and tablets, will be available beginning June 14, 2013 on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android.

In Survival Mode, fans see how long they can last against a progressively more difficult swarm of Zod’s forces. Players can share their scores with friends to see who the ultimate Man of Steel is, as well as upgrade their skills and unlock new suits by winning battles and earning experience points along the way.

The Man of Steel App is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com. An HD version is available for $4.99 on iPad.
