Disney Introduces New Mobile Games, Revamps Lineup
2012 was a big year for Disney in the mobile department. A couple of days ago, the media giant conducted a press conference in San Francisco to let the press know just how successful they’ve been with their mobile games. Imagine that — Disney is doing well. Who would have guessed?
According to Disney, the number of people with Disney Mobile games on their phones and mobile devices has exploded in 2012. Naturally, the company wants to keep that momentum going into 2013. So they’ve got a number of changes and revamps planned for their lineup of popular titles.
Here’s a quick summary of the three new titles that were announced:
Monster’s Inc. Run - Get Set Games, the devs behind Mega Jump and Mega Run, have joined forces with the big D to create Monster’s Inc. Run. As you might guess from the title, it takes the blueprints of Mega Run and puts them inside the Monster’s Inc. universe. This worked well for the Temple Run Brave experiment, so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing by now. Plus, Monster’s Inc. is just awesome! It’s definitely one of our favorite Pixar movies.
Where’s My Holiday? - This holiday-themed title will be a combination of the Where’s My Water? and Where’s My Perry? games. And as you might expect, both Swampy and Perry will be in on the action. Score! If this mash-up is anywhere near as good as the previous two games, then we’re all in for a holiday treat with this one. Right now, it’s set to launch next week, which, given the theme of the game, is pretty much a guarantee.
Nemo’s Reef - Another great Pixar title here is going to get the iOS treatment. Nemo’s Reef will follow in the recent inroads made by other famous franchises in the freemium city-building genre, giving you the chance to create your own underwater wonderland! According to Disney, the game will be a, “visually stunning underwater reef builder featuring Nemo and the cast from the movie.” If Disney gets this one right, it just might be as addictive as games like The Simpsons: Tapped Out.
