Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition may have focused primarily on the Marvel Super Heroes at first, and there are reasons for that. Those characters' inclusion is ground-breaking, they're brand-new to the series, and they're coming out first - the Marvel Super Heroes starter pack hits stores on September 3, 2014.
But for the more Disney-centric fans, there will be a starter pack for you, too, coming November 4, 2014. The Disney Originals Toy Box Starter pack was just officially announced in a new Toy Box trailer for the game, after being teased over the weekend at the Disney Infinity Toy Box Summit.
As seen in the trailer and the image above, the pack will include Merida and Stitch, along with two Toy Box games - a dungeon crawler featuring Merida's realm and a tower defense game centered around Stitch. The Marvel edition comes with a dungeon crawler that's Guardians of the Galaxy-centric and a tower defense in Asgard. One thing fans should note: The Disney Interactive-created Toy Box games that ship with the starter packs will only work with their associated character families.
That means that the Merida and Stitch-centric Toy Box Games can use any Disney Originals characters (that includes all 1.0 characters, plus newcomers like Merida, Stitch, Donald, Maleficent, Aladdin, Jasmine, and Hiro & Baymax from Big Hero 6 - despite them being based on Marvel characters). The Guardians and Asgard Toy Box Games can use any Marvel characters.
The Disney Originals Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition Toy Box Starter pack will run $59.99. Marvel fans who buy the Marvel starter pack can pick up the Disney Originals Toy Box Games in November, too - for just 5 bucks. (Pre-order either of them here)
Of course, by then, the talented community of Toy Box makers will have made a thousand Toy Box games - and any user-created ones can use any characters from either family.
