Disney Interactive just announced the release date for the next edition of the hugely popular gaming platform, Disney Infinity 3.0. Releasing on Sunday, August 30, 2015, the game will launch with a series of play sets and characters from the Star Wars, Pixar, and Disney franchises — additional playsets and figures will be available through the fall.
The following items will be available at launch:
- Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out Play Set (Joy and Anger figures included) and additional standalone figures (Sadness, Disgust and Fear).
- Disney figures (Mickey, Minnie, Mulan, Olaf, Sam Flynn and Quorra).
- Tomorrowland Power Disc Pack.
- Star Wars™ Twilight of the Republic Play Set (Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano figures included), with additional standalone figures (Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Power Disc Pack.
- Star Wars Rebels™ figures (Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Zeb Orrelios)
- Star Wars™ Saga Starter Pack.
In addition to the release date announcement, those that pre-order a Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack at participating retail stores will also receive an early copy of the Toy Box Expansion Game, Toy Box Takeover, an action-adventure valued at $19.99, featuring multiplayer gameplay allowing players to use all of their favorite Disney Infinity characters across Star Wars™, Marvel, Disney and Disney•Pixar franchises.
Toy Box Takeover is one of two new Toy Box Expansion Games available to play in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. The second will be Toy Box Speedway, a kart-racing game, also set for release this fall. Toy Box Expansion Games unlock additional hours of gameplay inside Toy Box 3.0. Players place a Toy Box Expansion Game Piece on the Disney Infinity Base to unlock pre-built games that instantly take them into the action, mixing and matching characters from across The Walt Disney Company, all while using unlocked toys and gadgets to complete missions.
Toy Box TakeoverWhen Syndrome gets his hands on Merlin’s magic wand, it’s up to the player to stop him. Using their favorite characters in Disney Infinity, they must battle across multiple worlds, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Marvel’s Upper Manhattan, The Old West, or The Incredibles Volcano Lair to defeat the bad guys before they ruin the Toy Box forever. Players can complete missions with family and friends via two-player local co-op or four-player online.
Toy Box SpeedwayPlayers can join their favorite Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel’s, and Star Wars characters and vehicles in an action-packed kart-racer. With nine franchise-themed tracks to choose from – Sugar Rush, Frozen, Tatooine, a classic Star Wars location, San Fransokyo, Agrabah, Monsters Inc., Halloween Town, Gravity Falls, or Marvel’s Knowhere – they can choose from three different game modes including Time Trial mode, Race mode, and Combat mode. Players put their driving skills to the test as they attack opponents with gadgets and weapons and earn trophies across three challenge cups.

For those looking to pre-order the Inside Out playset — Amazon is listed as the exclusive provider of the standalone character of Fear. They even have an Inside Out bundle, so we’d recommend pre-ordering the Inside Out playset from Amazon. Of course, you’ll also need the Disney Infinity 3.0 starter pack as well.
