Disney Interactive Studios has revealed an upcoming project that is based on their newest CGI film release, Disney’s Planes. It’ll hit the big and small screens later this 2013. August 6th is the drop date in North America for the game, which will be available for the DS, 3DS, Wii, and Wii U just three days before the film release on August 9th.
The Planes film looks set to fill the gap left by the Cars franchise, and if the success of Cars was any indication, the kiddos should take to this new vehicle-inspired film and game like a jock to his Mustang.
Here’s a bit more info revealed by the press release for the game:
“From above the world of “Cars,” “Disney’s Planes” video game takes players on a high-flying, action-packed, fun-filled adventure with Dusty, a big-hearted, speed-loving crop duster who is voiced by actor and comedian Dane Cook. Players will take to the skies with Dusty and other characters, including Ishani, voiced by actress Priyanka Chopra; Echo, voiced by actor Anthony Edwards; and Bravo, voiced by actor Val Kilmer, as they embark on global missions, air races and grand adventures around the world.
In “Disney’s Planes” video game, players travel through breathtaking environments and play as one of 10 cast of characters on console and one of 6 cast of characters on handheld in either single-player, on all platforms or race against one another in two-player drop-in and drop-out gameplay on console. Players will roll, turn and loop their way through mission-based objectives in exciting modes of play including a narrative based Story mode and a score-based mini-game that challenges the player’s precision flying skills called Balloon Pop. The exploratory Free Flight mode and racing based Air Rallies mode are exclusive to the consoles and the objective achieving Challenge mode is only offered via the handheld platforms.”
