Since Disney Infinity’s initial announcement, it has been clear that the 3DS project was a separate experience. Although details about the handheld version haven’t been shared, a listing on the ESRB does provide a few bits of information.
The 3DS will be getting “Disney Infinity: Toy Box Challenge”. According to the ESRB listing, Toy Box Challenge is a multiplayer party game that sounds quite a bit like Mario Party. You’ll be moving Disney and Pixar characters around different game boards and experiencing different mini-game challenges along the way.
Players can expect mini-games involving puzzle solving, racing, fighting, and item collecting. There’s one mini-game mentioned by the ESRB that “depicts a one-on-one battle with swords on a pirate ship.”
Here’s the rating summary in full:
This is a multiplayer “party game” in which players move Disney/Pixar characters around various game boards to compete in mini-game challenges. Mini-games include solving puzzles, racing, fighting, and collecting various items. Several mini-games depict characters shooting “cartoony” pistols, blasters, or cannonballs at ships or enemies/boss characters (e.g., droids, giant squid, pirates). A handful of mini-games require players to shoot other characters with projectiles, resulting in cries of pain and/or “dizzy-star” effects. One mini-game depicts a one-on-one battle with swords on a pirate ship.
