Disney Universe reveals that it's a little big world after all, with a 4-player multiplayer customisable platformer.
Disney are once again mixing up some of their beloved characters in a new multiplayer platform collect-em-up. Mixing scenes and costumes from Disney and Pixar movies such as Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, Alice, Lilo and Stitch and Tron Legacy, Disney Universe is sure to appeal to a wide range of different movie fans.
While the big-headed character design, featuring the "character skins" worn as a suit in a manner very reminiscent of LittleBigPlanet, this game appears to be more in the vain of a traditional 3D platform brawler, with each world promising different play style and an exploration into of the plot of each film.
This isn't the first time classic Disney characters have crossed over into other worlds. The popular Square-Enix RPG series Kingdom Hearts has successfully demonstrated that rich new narratives can be woven by bringing characters from different games and films into the same story. The teaser for Disney Universe even alludes to this, as one character is handed a key only to begin flailing it around like a sword, in a nod to Kingdom Hearts' signature Keyblade weapon.
Disney Universe will be bounding onto XBox 360, PS3 and PC/Mac in the Autumn of 2011.
