Pick up Rapunzel, Rapunzel, and the pot. Then join Beauty and the Beast ’s Belle and Maleficent to fight the bad guys in interdimensional design.
Sounds a little different from the way you remember the story, doesn't it?
In Disney Mirror Warriors' digital domain, the golden-haired heroine of anime fairy tale fame isn't the only beloved character that appears in a distinctly different way. Disney, Kabam, and Netmarble's new team-based role-playing games (RPGs) bring the favorite stars of these original movies to a whole new reality.
The mobile platform project for Apple and Android has been in development for about four years at Kabam's Vancouver Studios. The game will start on June 23rd and players can register atdisneymirrorverse.com
. Think of this as a journey through the glass to the backside where an ominous threat called Fractchard was designed. Shatter both worlds.
Players can choose and customize the Mirror Bath Guardian to take part in high stakes quests in a 3D environment full of new stories and real-time action combat. Of course, Mirror Bath has enough challenges and Guardians will need some upgrades. From Monsters, Inc.'s armored sari to the frying pan-wielding Rapunzel mentioned above, your character will evolve as you embark on your adventure to meet future demands.
"It's very exciting to work with Disney to create a whole new world for players to explore and engage in this kind of rare opportunity," Kabam said. Executive said. Producer Mark Laham. "Making sure that these characters and the environment are true to the original, while at the same time transforming them into something that fits Kabam's reputation for action and RPG character games is something that has never been done before. Launched with 40 unique and brand new characters you know and love from Disney and Pixar movies that have evolved to the far more extreme real-life moments of Bath. "
Not surprisingly, there are limits to how extreme the divergent reality of the mirror berth can be. After all, there are tough fairy tales and Grimms' Fairy Tales. Even Disney hasn't spent all its time adapting the dark and horrifying original story to the film.
"We wanted to keep very loyal to who the characters really are. We work closely with Disney and fit them naturally. In that way, I developed a divergent self in response to action, "said senior art director Nicholas Tay. "That meant going back and watching every movie and digging deeper into who the characters were and what motivated them, and gamers would still have it as their favorite character. I could say there is, but it's their super cool new version. "
All scenarios and animations are each character traveling through stories such as the era of isolation, fractures, etc. I tried to take into account how I react with my unique task and compete in the mirror berth. New chapters in the main story quest and side story will be updated every few months as the alliance between players forms and the mirror berth expands. A variety of special content contests, missions, and contests will bring new Disney and Pixar characters to keep things interesting.
"When jumping, the first thing players notice is that this is an action game with immediate pickup and play, pushbuttons, swing sword-like controls. It has been around for years, "Raham said. "It feels great right out of the case and is a mobile game. Then, from the start of story mode, it's a higher level of how to evolve, bring your team together, and tackle the challenges that come later. There is a transition. ”
Finally, there are additional components where the source material for the game is deeply intertwined with so many people around the world. Wanting to play as your favorite Pixar character says something about how you want to identify it to millions of gamers.
"The idea of self-expression is very important in mobile games, and people want to be able to reflect something about themselves in their character choices," says Tay. .. "Suddenly Snow White can't turn into a ninja or something." It cannot be confused with the entire multiverse. Kabam also developed the Marvel Contest of Champions Games and Transformers: Forged Steel Warriors. Both Tay and Lahamu say that the unique introductory story of the Mirror Bath game establishes it as its own very separate divergent reality.
"Marvel has certainly set precedents for the multi-dimensional universe and many Spider-Man, but it's just right because it's the first time Disney and Pixar have entered the realm of storytelling devices and the world. I had to, "Raham said. "Many of the market research we did was amazing in terms of how strong the enthusiastic fans were about what worked and what didn't in terms of characters and actions. Listened. "
