planes-disney

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.

  • I actually think this is fun haha

  • ChiwawaBoi

    *facepalm* oh no. not another movie game.

    just dont turn out like the croods.

  • 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.

    • 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!!!!

  • The Wii U has flopped. Pay special attention to the second paragraph…

    • 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!

      • 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 😛

          • 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…….
