Disney Interactive Announces ‘Toy Story Mania!’ for Wii
Disney Interactive Studios [has] announced Toy Story Mania!, inspired by the Disney/Pixar animated feature “Toy Story,” will be released exclusively for the Wii™ home video game console this fall. Toy Story Mania! showcases an array of entertaining games based on the new Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort attractions, while featuring the iconic characters and humor from the popular Disney/Pixar “Toy Story” franchise.
In Toy Story Mania!, players experience the fast-paced, zany fun of the Toy Story Mania! theme park attraction, which is an interactive experience requiring 3D glasses and involving rapid or quick-firing shooting galleries. In addition to galleries adapted from the attraction, the game includes new and original galleries and a series of mini games, all hosted by beloved characters from the movies. The thematically-connected levels are designed for up to four players of all ages with competitive and co-operative multiplayer options. Toy Story Mania! also includes bonus 3D features, transforming the game experience with eye-popping visuals.
The Fall 2009 release of the Wii-exclusive Toy Story Mania! is expected to tie in with the 3D theatrical re-release of the first Toy Story film, and Edge-Online.com says Disney Interactive will include a pair of 3D glasses with each copy of the game. Edge-Online adds: “…no solid plans for future 3D game technology have been announced. Disney Interactive Studio’s 3D glasses are of the classic anaglyph variety with green and red lenses. The publisher claims they can work on standard television sets, and are ‘required’ for play.”
