Disney and Sony have assembled to bring superpowered “Disney Infinity 2.0” products for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 platforms. A console bundle and a special Collector's Edition were announced today by Sony on the PlayStation blog for the upcoming Disney game featuring Marvel heroes.

 

The Collector’s Edition will include the game’s starter pack, plus all six Avengers Play Set figures. The figures include Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America and Hulk. Hulk is a timed exclusive on Sony platforms, giving him a 30-day head start to smash before becoming available on Xbox, PC and Nintendo platforms.

 

Also included in the Collector’s Edition is a light-up diorama of the Frost Beast boss from The Avenger’s Play Set. The Frost Beast pulls double duty, acting as a display stand for the six included Avengers figurines. The diorama holds seven figurines. The remaining character will be announced at a later date.

No word yet on a hard release date for the game. It’s also surprising to not see a similar bundle with the PS4, Sony’s latest console. A bundle with one of the fall’s biggest games could give the young console a good boost.
