Still no announcement on when Kingdom Hearts 3 is going to be released, but with the addition of Big Hero 6 to the game kinda makes up for it. I will have to get Disney Infinity 3.0 for Playstation 4, since Boba Fett is exclusive to that system. I love that they are incorporating Kingdom Hearts into Disney Infinity. Kingdom Hearts is one of my all-time favorite video game series. I may not have too much free time once Star Wars Battlefront comes out. The gameplay and graphics on it look amazing.
Disney Interactive Pavilion had a great setup on the show floor with demos of all the games discussed at the panel. Disney Infinity had a layout similar to their setup at E3 with game stations, interactive photo op area, Disney Infinity Artwork and archway displaying all the figures released so far.
It’s such a great time to be a fan of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars right now!
