Disney has always been fond of tie-in games for movies, which is exactly what Planes happens to be. The CGI film will be released later this year and will see release on Wii U, Wii, 3DS and DS. The game will be available August 6th, shortly before the film is made available in theaters. From above the world of “Cars,” “Disney’s Planes” video game takes players on a high-flying, action-packed, fun-filled 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 breathtaking 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 exciting 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.

Mario Kart 8 Switch vs Wii U comparison Miyamoto shot down this stamina regen idea for BoTW Nintendo Network maintenance this week Aleksandar Antonijevic I actually think this is fun haha ChiwawaBoi *facepalm* oh no. not another movie game. just dont turn out like the croods. Christopher Hanson As long as it has online battles , also it would be sweet if they had missions where you fly over rural islands and drop bombs on African…………….lions. Kyle Berger that’s mean but I cant help laughing Cubester_64 Would Disney ever do that? Levi Johansen Yeah! Bomb those black…………….panthers! Ducked To hardcore for me. ReturnoftheTruth2 Now is I would have written that, they would have taken it as trolling. Kyle Berger because you are a troll. he is funny. Silent No Duh Wayne Beck Do not knock this game. If this movie is even half as good as Cars, this game will sell hundreds of thousands if not millions of units. If this movie is AS good as cars, it will be a System Seller. Edit: Just to put it in perspective, “Cars”, just the first game, Sold over 5 million units across all platforms. uPadWatcher To infinity… and I’ll pass. Zuxs13 Oh my nephew will love this, maybe Ill buy him a Wii U and his for xmas. CTRAINGAMER Dude…the main character is voiced by Dane Cook…Thats awesome! Mochlum WOOHOO FOR SHOVELWARE! Jimmy D. Fugate Gotta love dat shovelware! Guhtere Who cares? This game will be crap. Just like every other recent Disney licensed game (excluding Epic Mickey 1 and the KH games of course) Levi Johansen I hope Disney Infinite is better, because if isn’t based on a movie and has its own game-exclusive story… but It’s probably just a childhood dream to see ONE good disney game… 🙁 Silent Im going to wait 2 more years for ”Boats” Bill Bong 3 years for me for “Trains”. Then the will release a 3 game box set called “Trains, Planes and Automobiles”. Levi Johansen air-balloons anyone? I want that!! Jeenaud X I like trains! Mochlum Good one… (goes to Disney and begs that they finally stop with the hellhole of the Cars franchise) CuriousManiac Im waiting for trains… Because I like trains O_O JBeauregard I would like to see fluff articles stay out of release news. This doesn’t do anything for Wii U’s rep. I don’t think Nintendo cares, though. Nothing like releasing garbage games and posting news about it all over lol RoadyMike I can’t wait for “Boats”! Bob Singh Its Pixar who actually makes it… Levi Johansen No, it’s Dinsey Toon-studios – Wiki said soo… Bob Singh sorry my bad. Still, John Lasseter is still one of the producers. Cerus98 Disney movie. Pixar wouldn’t be caught doing something like this. Miming every side character in existence is Disney’s style all the way. Nobody LOTS AND LOTS OF JETS AND PLANES!!!! ReturnoftheTruth2 The Wii U has flopped. Pay special attention to the second paragraph… http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/04/09/can-microsoft-save-the-video-game-industry.aspx Levi Johansen Someone said something… it must be true then! With ZERO advertising, it is selling better than PS3 and Xbox 360 did in their first months with MASSIVE advertising. After E3, there will be lots of games and lots of advertising – it’ll sell as good as the Wii! Nintendo messed up, they choose a wrong marketing strategy, expecting alot more 3rd-party support. But since the other two aren’t out yet, they haven’t really lost anything. 3rd-party support is on it’s way though! ReturnoftheTruth2 Should I trust investors or you? Levi Johansen both you and the investors will have a hard time making up excuses for WHY the Wii U became such a success… can’t wait for it 😛 ReturnoftheTruth2 While you wait, they have been informed that it flopped and it will be hard for it to come back. Levi Johansen I will buy it on Wii U for myself and on Wii for my cousins! Looks like a fun game! 😀 Lars Jansen I’d like to see a pilot wings remake on wii u! Einar It really wasn’t an april fool’s joke. Oh my god….. Zeldatrek Look! Up in the sky! Its a bird, Its Superman, No Its Shovelware! Jon well… not something I would buy but I guess there are younger kids that play videos games…….
