Avid Disney fans and collectors alike have had quite a few announcements to salivate over in recent weeks courtesy of Disney Infinity 2.0 and its many new interactive figures. The latest pair of toys confirmed for use in the game’s Toy Box mode were Aladdin and Jasmine, and now they’ll be joined by the likes of one of Disney’s most iconic characters.
None other than Donald Duck is set to make his debut in Disney Infinity 2.0 as a collectible figurine and resulting playable character, which should make old school aficionados of the treasured company brandish their wallets with near-lethal intent.
While the foul-mouthed fowl has been on the receiving end of multiple beatings throughout his fabled career, he looks ready to right those wrongs within the confines of the upcoming game’s disc. Donald will be packing a mallet that should be able to completely dismantle many of the foes that can be summoned within the Toy Box, and that’s saying something considering that some of the baddies have gone up against the likes of Marvel super heroes.
If mallet mashing isn’t that appealing to Donald users, then it appears that the fury-fueled sack of feathers can also throw random objects at those that oppose him. Whether its a vase, a lamp, a shoe or what appears to be a watermelon, Mr. Duck is not even remotely afraid of whipping these items at friends and foes alike.
Of course, those looking for some additional nods to the duck’s illustrious past can also collect a special ‘All For One’ Power Disc that allows him to strut his stuff and his Musketeers garb. That also includes his razor sharp sword weapon, so anyone looking to mix it up from the aforementioned mallet will be able to do just that — provided they can obtain the disc, that is.
With everyone from Maleficent to the Guardians of the Galaxy set to appear in Disney Infinity 2.0, gamers should have a decent amount of options when it comes to which characters they want to collect and play as in the forthcoming title. Whether or not Disney has anything else planned, however, remains to be seen.
Disney Infinity 2.0 will be arriving on PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 23, 2014.
