Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Mobile developer Kabam, along with Disney, have announced Disney Mirrorverse. Disney Mirrorrverse is an action-packed world of Disney and Pixar characters, releasing on mobile devices later this year.

In Disney Mirrroverse, players unlock, assemble (and most likely, purchase) souped-up Disney and Pixar characters called Guardians. Teams of Guardians must defeat waves of enemies in real-time combat by unleashing each character’s special abilities.

“Disney Mirrorverse represents a brave reimagining of iconic Disney and Pixar characters and stories, and we’re delighted to be working with Kabam to bring this original universe to life for players,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Games and Interactive Experiences at Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. “This stunning new adventure will appeal to Disney fans and die-hard RPG fans alike, and we can’t wait to show players what’s on the other side of the Stellar Mirror.”

“We are beyond excited to bring so many amazing Disney and Pixar characters together, and to present each of them in a heroic light that fans have never seen before,” said Tim Fields, CEO, Kabam. “Over the coming months, we’ll be working closely with our friends at Disney to tune and polish this immersive and engaging adventure.”

Disney Mirrorverse is currently in beta testing in select regions. You can sign up for updates at the official website.
