Disney Infinity owners on Wii get free Wii U upgrade
Players can grab the newer console version at no cost
Disney Interactive is giving the original Disney Infinity owners on Wii the chance to upgrade their play experience to Wii U free of charge, exclusively through the Nintendo eShop.
Starting today, fans who own the Disney Infinity Starter Pack on Wii can download the Wii U version of the game from the Nintendo eShop, complete with multiplayer. Of course, the Disney Infinity base and figures are required to play on Wii U once downloaded.
“Disney Infinity launched one year ago, and in that time the number of Wii U players has significantly expanded. Given our commitment to compatibility for our players, we wanted existing Wii owners to be able to experience the Wii U version of the first game for free,” said John Blackburn, Vice President and General Manager of Avalanche Software.
The sequel, Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition: Marvel Super Heroes will launch this October for Wii U, as well as other consoles and PC.
