Disney Infinity 3.0 will introduce the Star Wars universe to the toys-to-life title when it is released this fall, publisher Disney has announced.

Revealed by Game Informer as its next cover title, the latest entry will feature "Luke, Leia, Anakin, and more" joining the growing stable of Disney Infinity properties.

Avalanche Software, a subsidiary of Disney Interactive, is once again leading development, with DmC: Devil May Cry and Heavenly Sword studio Ninja Theory returning to create the Twilight of the Republic playset, which follows Anakin and Ahsoka as they fight to uncover who is behind the creation of a new droid army. The studio will also tweak the combat gameplay. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing developer Sumo Digital, meanwhile, will handle the development of the driving gameplay.

Disney Infinity 3.0’s Star Wars story is set after the events of Star Wars: Episode II. The game will feature land and space battles, along with a focus on melee combat.

Darth Maul, Obi-Wan, Chewbacca, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Yoda will be available as additional characters and figures. Star Wars characters will be able to merge playsets, allowing for canon-breaking in-game scenarios.

Disney Infinity 3.0’s Rise Against the Empire playset has been crafted by Studio Gobo, which previously worked on the Pirates of the Caribbean set. It follows Luke and Leia through memorable sequences in which they come to blows with Darth Vader and his forces. The battle of Yavin, Hoth, and Tatooine have been mentioned as events and locations that will be included.

A second Star Wars playset, based on The Force Awakens, has also been announced for this winter, along with sets based on Pixar’s Inside Out.

Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games is working on new Marvel characters, including the Hulkbuster Iron Man, Ultron, and more.

Finally, it has also been confirmed that additional Disney Infinity 3.0 figures include Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Tron: Legacy’s Sam Flynn and Quorra, Mulan, Olaf, “and more” will be available.

Disney Infinity 3.0 will ship on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android. Images of the new Disney Infinity 3.0 figures as well as its packaging were previously leaked by a German retailer.

Nintendo recently announced a new wave of its own toys-to-life Amiibo figures for Splatoon and Yoshi's Wooly World. The Japanese company has also said that Skylanders and Disney Infinity contributed to the success of its own Amiibo figures.
