Mike Schneider Graces the Launch of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes 2.0 Edition


Wazzup Pilipinas!

No less than Mike Schneider, the Senior Producer of Disney Interactive, graced the launch of a hit video game that will surely become the rave of all fans of the gaming franchise. To familiarize us with the guy, he was the one who also worked on the first "Disney Infinity", as well as previous Disney titles like “Phineas & Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension”, the “Disney: Sing It” series and various others.

He was the special guest and speaker at the event held last September 24, 2014 at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. Several members of the media got to play for the first time the new Version 2.0, and had the opportunity to battle it out via a motorcycle race. The winner, a lady gamer who beat all the guys in the room, got to bring home fabulous prices from Disney Interactive.


Mike has been in the video games industry since 1994 so he's the expert that you can trust when it comes to the gaming business. He has held roles in production and quality assurance, working in both business and creative roles as Senior Producer and Quality Assurance Manager, managing titles, doing some design work and even contributing to the dialogue script creation on several titles.



The game can take in as much as four players so it was expected that he will be asked if there were any plans to create a bigger networking or online game like that of an MMORPG or the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.

There was also the question of why it was"cartoony" in design of which Mike replied it was because to make it consistent with the "Toy Box" world.

Everyone got to bring home a character. I got Groot but I chose to swap it with a different character since I prefer the more muscular and humungous bad boy Venom.


Disney Interactive and Marvel's Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is the follow up to last year’s #1 best-selling new hybrid toy/video game of 2013 (according to the NPD Group’s video games retail sales data). The game is available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Wii U system from Nintendo. 







More information from the official press release below:

The Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack features the 2.0 game software, the Disney Infinity 2.0 Base, Marvel’s The Avengers Play Set with three character figures (Iron Man, Black Widow and Thor), two Toy Box Game Discs, a web code card and countless hours of creative play in the all-new Toy Box 2.0. Marvel’s Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy Play Sets, along with additional figures from those worlds, will be sold separately. All characters and Power Discs from last year’s release of Disney Infinity are compatible with Toy Box 2.0.

“With the launch of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition), we’re delivering fresh storylines - for some of Marvel’s most iconic characters - to one of the biggest video game franchises on the market,” said Peter Phillips, EVP and General Manager, Interactive & Digital Distribution at Marvel Entertainment. “This is one of the most important game launches in Marvel history, and we believe that fans and collectors of all ages will be wowed by the experience.”

The new game introduces interactive Super Hero figures from across the Marvel universe with original Play Set storylines written with the help of award-winning Marvel comic writer Brian Michael Bendis. Each new character brings a variety of super-powered and unique gameplay mechanics such as flying, web slinging, wall crawling, wall smashing and more.

An improved Toy Box 2.0 mode makes it easier for players to create and share their one-of-a-kind levels and games with family and friends using their favorite Marvel and Disney characters, vehicles, settings and items. New and enhanced Toy Box tools and toys will make the groundbreaking game mode even more accessible for players of all ages. Toy Box Game Discs deliver new structured gameplay modes to the Toy Box where players can engage in classic Dungeon Crawler and Tower Defense gameplay using any character from across the Disney Infinity universe.

“For the 2.0 version of Disney Infinity, we’ve re-tooled nearly every aspect of the game to ensure it matched the epic expectations of Marvel Super Hero fans around the world,” said John Blackburn, SVP and General Manager of Avalanche Software. “Whether they’re playing with the entirely new character skills and combat systems, exploring Play Sets four times larger than the original version, or building worlds in the new Toy Box, we hope fans will be blown away by the evolution of Disney Infinity.”

Community continues to play an important role in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, with the availability of new Toy Boxes created by the recently hired Avalanche Software Community Team. These super-fans turned level designers will be designing immersive, themed Toy Boxes and episodic content for Disney Infinity players to download for free at launch and beyond. Also available at launch will be select Toy Boxes designed by Toy Box Artists from around the world at the inaugural Disney Infinity Toy Box Summit this past August.

Developed by Avalanche Software, the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack carries a suggested retail price of PHP 3,799.00 and all versions are rated "E-10+" by the ESRB. The Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy Play Sets are available separately for a suggested retail price of PHP 1,849.00. Individual character figures are available for a suggested retail price of PHP 679.00 and blind Power Disc packs for PHP 289.00.
