Star Wars Vehicle Found in Disney Infinity Video Game
by Robin Vial
Disney's Infinity 2.0 has been out for some time now. But interesting new things are still being discovered in the game that pique the interest of Star Wars fans in particular. Last year at around this time, fans discovered the first known Star Wars item in the game's Hall of Heroes, Yoda's lightsaber. Almost a full year later, persistent gamers have unlocked Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder from Episode IV as a playable vehicle in the game.
In order to get the iconic vehicle, players must have all 30 characters, and have them fully leveled up. That can cost of lot of game currency and take plenty of time. One can also get the Landspeeder by a user-generated Toy Box via download. The Landspeeder has a hood that pops open when damaged upon impact, and leaves trails of Tatooine-like dust as it rockets along. Also, John Williams beloved score of Star Wars film music plays whenever the Landspeeder is being driven
There is no official word yet about Disney 3.0. But anticipation is building for the new Disney Infinity game to feature Star Wars content, or even be based on the Star Wars Universe. With the new Sequel Trilogy of feature films beginning in 2015 with Episode 7: The Force Awakens, the first new Star Wars film since Disney acquired the Lucasfilm universe, fans are assuming that it would be a natural for the new new Infinities game to go Star Wars. If it did, that would mean there could be new Infinites game figures to collect, which would set off a frenzy of its own with both Star Wars and Disney collectors alike.
Shortly after its discovery, the lightsaber within the game was demonstrated at Disney's private event at Toy Fair International in New York City, which is an industry-only event. With this year's Toy Fair coming up in three weeks, the timing seems right for a new peek from Disney about what to expect in 2015 from the next Disney Infinity game.
