Disney-Infinity-McQueen-3Well, this certainly alters our original post on Disney Infinity, at least just a bit. As of this past Friday, the Cars franchise officially joined The Incredibles, Monsters University and Pirates of the Caribbean as an official Disney Infinity Play Set. So now, not only does this mean that you will be able to purchase Cars characters to add to your Toy Box, you’ll also be able to actually use those characters in Cars-centric stories in Radiator Springs, where you’ll prepare the town for a major international racing event. The Cars Play Set lets you take on the roles of Lightning McQueen, Mater, Holley Shiftwell and Francesco Bernoulli, and gives you the power to customize the town of Radiator Springs (even allowing you to turn it into an all-out stunt park).

As with the previously announced Play Sets, the Cars Set opens up the playable characters for use in Toy Box mode. And this Set specifically adds in driving/racing game mechanics, and track pieces to the Toy Box, for use in your customized world. Who knows… Since Cars characters were shown in the original announcement, maybe we’ll see a Phineas and Ferb Play Set announced before the game’s summer launch.
