Developer Ninja Theory is assisting with the development of the combat in Disney Infinity 2.0. Announced at the Giant Bomb PAX panel, and later confirmed on Twitter, Disney Infinity executive producer John Vignocchi said that the developer is the latest team to join the platform.
Talking about Ninja Theory on Twitter, Vignocchi said, "They have been working with us since February and are like family to our team at Avalanche and Disney." And at the panel he said that Ninja Theory has primarily focused on battle systems for villains like Loki, Green Goblin, and Ronan.
Ninja Theory has worked on other franchises before (like their work with Nintendo on the reboot of DmC: Devil May Cry), but they're perhaps better known as the creators of Heavenly Sword and Enslaved. At Gamescom earlier this year, Ninja Theory also revealed that they're working on a new original game titled Hellblade.
Disney Infinity likely has some more news coming in the near future as well, having recently teased the addition of Star Wars characters to the game.
