Disney today announced their latest venture into the video game world, Disney Universe, which puts problem solving and team play at the forefront with its multiplayer orientated action-adventure stylings.

For the first time ever, Disney and Pixar will combine to create a rich action-adventure title where players can suit up in iconic costumes, defeat enemies, explore Disney and Pixar inspired worlds – both from animated and live-action films – and face “legendary challenges” – so getting Sulley from Monster’s Inc into a tutu then?

With Alice (Alice in Wonderland), Mike (Monster’s Inc), TRON (TRON) and Stitch (Lilo & Stitch) costumes already confirmed, Disney Universe is set to be a Disney fan’s wildest dream. Team up with four friends to solve puzzles, defeat enemies and compete for high-scores in a land where mischief, madness and mayhem reign free.

Players will select a character-based costume, with each costume offering a specific tool that changes and grows in power as players adventure through the game, according to the press release. Each of the game’s six worlds will have objectives and missions that follow the Disney and Pixar movie storylines too.

Disney are already promising post launch support as well, including additional worlds, costumes and more. Could this be the current generation Kingdom of Hearts we’re all after? We’ll find out this fall.

Disney Universe is slated for a release in fall 2011. In the meantime, check out the debut screens and announcement trailer below.

Disney should just stay out of games and keep their (mostly archaic) characters to theme parks and cartoons.

Probs because Disney had some costumes and Pirates of the Caribbean with Little Big Planet that they realized there was something to it.

I'm not sure this is a rip off of lbp like people seem to be saying,if anything this seems like Disney's take on Costume Quest. You, in costumes, doing things. LBP is about creating levels. And I have to admit, that made me giggle. I'm now excited about this. Favorite part is the one in teh stitch costume gets the key and starts using it to beat on chest. *giggles and falls out of the chair*

How can this be a rip-off of little big planet???? You don't create anything just change costumes to solve puzzles, collect things and "fight" bad guys, how did anyone get anything from LBP from that.... Jeez, people need to learn to read or watch the videos more carefully.

#12 hit the nail on the head by saying it looks more like costume quest, now it can be said it's a rip-off of something....

@20 i think they were talking about the look of it, in which case its undeniable the similarities. but then again, how else to you give a cute feel to a videogame without making tiny bodies with over sized heads and ridiculous costumes?

@21, there's been quite a few games that done big heads and such. Costume quest was like that. I think just most people are focusing on the "we wear costumes!" instead of the "costume actually do something other than give us something to wear". People need to read more and post less, just mho

@24 yeah thats what i was saying, so many games have that same look so really its not a copy of LBP but moreso just an already established technique to make games look adorable.

It's not LittleBigPlanet ripoff, You cannot play online, cannot create levels, cannot share levels… It's just Di$ney ! And they cancelled Split/Second 2 for that ???

The news only mention four confirmed costumes, yet there are clearly others like Pumba and Nemo in the screenshots xD

Also, "Kingdom of Hearts". Of :P?

Lol, what a bunch of unoriginal failures. Disney has never once made a good video game, and now they have to ripoff of Little Big Planet? Lol!

If the game is as comical as that trailer, then I'm definitely getting it. If this is what they canceled split/second 2 for, I say good, this game looks mint.

@34 have you played the disney games on the older consoles? Master system, mega drive, super nintendo?

They were pretty good platforming games. Its only the next generation disney has failed at. Probably because the price point of a ps3 is a bit rich for a little kid. Games like these fair better on the wii.

But seriously play those old games, they are pretty sweet.

Boo yah!

@20 Yeah I just think it looks like LBP. Obviously its not a rip off because it isn't side scroll. However the similarities are undeniable. I didn't say it was wrong or anything, just thought it was funny.

@32: Read the news & watch the video, then compare to the screenshots. You'll notice more than 4 :)
@38: You're silly if you think you're the only one who has noticed similiarities xD
