Disney’s Planes Announced
Disney Interactive today announced that Disney’s Planes, a flying adventure video game inspired by the upcoming Disney animated comedy adventure film, will be available exclusively for Nintendo platforms including the Wii and Wii U as well as the Nintendo 3DS and DS on August 6th, just a few days prior to the film’s August 9th opening in theaters nationwide. The game will expand beyond the storyline of Disney’s Planes, offering players the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of flight as one of the characters from the film.
From above the world of Cars, Disney’s Planes video game takes players on an 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 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 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.
