Toy Story Mania! Brings Amusement Park Attraction to the Living Room Available Now for Wii
Based on the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort’s Must-Ride Attraction and starring the charming cast of the DisneyPixar Toy Story franchise, Toy Story Mania! features bonus unlockable 3-D gameplay
Toy Story Mania!, a bi-coastal star attraction at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, is now available for the Wii™ system. The newest title from Disney Interactive Studios brings classic DisneyPixar Toy Story characters together as they stage their own fun-filled carnival, featuring familiar and one-of-a-kind midway-inspired games, alongside bonus unlockable levels in 3-D.
“Toy Story Mania! is the first video game to be directly inspired by a Disney attraction,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “Developing this game was truly a collaborative effort between Disney Interactive Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Imagineers and the Disney Parks team. As a result, the end product fully captures the essence of the attraction and delivers a new fun-filled experience appropriate for all members of the family.”
Toy Story Mania! features multiplayer competitive and cooperative modes supporting up to four players to provide hours of fun. Ten fast-paced shooting galleries are featured, including some adapted from the theme park attraction and others that are original. For example, the attraction’s popular Pie Toss game is represented in the game’s training level, and five additional levels based on the theme park experience are available as unlockables in story mode. Players can also team up to unlock Easter eggs and collectibles.
Toy Story Mania! also shares another feature with the theme park attraction—and now the movies that inspired it—with bonus unlockable 3-D gameplay, lets players experience parts of the game in eye-popping 3-D! “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2” are heading back to the big screen—this time in Disney Digital 3D™; the exclusive double feature hits theaters this October.
