PerBlue Entertainment has a new Disney title in the Google Play Store called Disney Heroes: Battle Mode, which pits Disney characters against bad guys in RPG combat. Players are tasked with assembling a team of heroes in order to take down a virus that is "corrupting every pixel" of their digital city. No fewer than fifteen heroes from Disney and Pixar films will be available at launch and, as with every great RPG, there will be various pieces of equipment to gather and levels to gain. The roster includes characters from The Incredibles, Wreck-It Ralph, and Zootopia, as of this writing. Combat is turn-based and various characters will have their own special abilities, as well as friendships to be unlocked which will unveil new combo abilities.
PerBlue also says that Disney Heroes: Battle Mode will be completely free to play with ads to support the developers. Although in-app purchases will be available to pay for in-game currency, that shouldn't be needed since plenty of in-game currency will be available through standard gameplay, as per the studio. The app's description also hints at special missions and campaigns. That could mean there will be different modes available following the launch or that new content is slated to be added over time.
The upcoming Android title is actually one of a few new takes on Disney-branded mobile gaming experiences that are expected to be released in the near future. That's following the company's new partnership announcements which were made back in January. At least three other titles are still in the works from two other developer-publishers which will bear the Disney name and characters. There's still no timeframe for those releases which are meant to come from Ludia, Glu, and Gameloft, respectively. There's also no telling what kinds of games those will be. If Disney Heroes: Battle Mode is anything to go by, however, 2018 could be a very interesting year for Disney games.
