'Guardians of the Galaxy' Added to 'Disney Infinity' Videogame (Video)
Disney Interactive officially confirmed long-standing rumors Wednesday that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be joining the already-announced Spider-Man and the Avengers in this fall’s Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes expansion.
The Guardians playset will include Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Groot and Rocket Raccoon, with two characters from other playsets (Iron Man from the Avengers set and Nova from the Spider-Man set) also playable. All five Guardians characters will also be playable in the Toy Box 2.0, as well as a special Marvel-exclusive Toy Box game titled Attack on Asgard.
The actual team won’t be the only characters from the upcoming movie to appear in the game; Cosmo, the Collector and Yondu will also feature as mission givers, and Ronan the Accuser will show up as the villain of the Guardians playset.
Watch the video below for an introduction to the Infinity version of the characters, as irreverent as the movie version, if considerably cuter—in particular, enjoy Groot’s leaf-filled moves—and more family friendly. The Disney Infinity Guardians of the Galaxy playset will be available this fall.
