The end of Disney Infinity continues, with it being announced today that “All Disney Infinity online services and community features for all versions will be discontinued” on March 3, 2017. Toy Boxes can be downloaded until that date. However, the Disney Infinity Community team will no longer accept new Toy Boxes as of September 30.

Even after March 3 approaches, Disney Infinity players will still have “full access to figures and play sets only with the exception of community content features and online multiplayer”.

Here’s the full timeline for the discontinuation of Disney Infinity’s online services:

Since announcing that we will discontinue the production of Disney Infinity, we’ve been exploring timelines for the closure of the game’s online versions and community features. Our goal has been to offer extended access to these services, while also providing clear communication about what you can expect. It’s important to note that:


Yesterday, Forbes published an interview with Niantic CEO John Hanke. It covered Hanke’s early days with gaming, working at Keyhold, and eventually starting Niantic.

The middle part of the interview is where the discussion becomes interesting for Pokemon GO plans. Hanke talked about the game’s success thus far, cheating (some of “those things may not work in the future”), server issues, and other topics.

We’ve rounded up some of Hanke’s comments below. You can read Forbes’ full interview here.


We previously mentioned that Quest of Dungeons has a September 1 release date in Europe on Wii U. The 3DS version is still coming, but it’s in lot check at the moment – meaning no date yet. As for North America, both versions are pending (though still planned of course).

Quest of Dungeons will cost €8.99. Even better, when both versions are available, cross-buy will be supported. Buying the game on Wii U will net you the 3DS version for free, and vise versa.

Quest of Dungeons will support off-TV play and the Pro Controller on Wii U. The 3DS version officially has StreetPass functionality, in which you encounter the ghost of another player’s failed attempts and try to kill/loot.

Below are links to each:

Bandai Namco has shared a new Dragon Ball: Fusions video showing off the battle system. Check it out below.

Thanks to Siliconera, we also have the following details:

– Fusion system lets you fuse pretty much any character
– Different enemies appear in Fusion World
– The characters attack in the order of a “Timeline”
– Characters closest to the right being the next in line to attack
– 3 main commands
– Basic attacks are split between Fight and Energy Ball options
– Fight is a close-ranged melee attack with high power while Energy Ball uses Ki and will allow you to pull off multiple attacks depending on its type
– Special Attack: most powerful one for dealing damage
– Other options such as “Charge Ki” and “Check Power”
– Character triangle with each character fitting under a category of Power, Technique, and Speed
– Power beats Technique
– Technique bests Speed
– Speed takes out Power.
– “Ring Out”: used to blow enemies away and send them further to the left in the Timeline order
– If used properly, you can keep certain enemies from attacking by keeping them pushed back
– This will also come in handy when you want to pull off Support Attacks
– Activate Support Attacks with multiple characters just by having their turn orders next to each other in the Timeline
– Deal more damage with more characters for Support Attacks
– Different Support Attack categories
– Fight-type: deals more damage than the basic version and blows enemies away
– Energy Ball-type: aren’t as strong as the Fight-type counterparts, but they can hit multiple enemies at once
– Support-type: various effects such as healing abilities and buffs
– Maxi Gauge: choose between the two of “All-Out Attack” and “Maxi-Fusion”
– All-Out Attacks start an action battle mode where you can perform attacks in action battle style by pressing A and X for physical and energy attacks, Y and B for guarding and evading
– Can recruit enemies hit with All-Out Attacks
– Maxi-Fusion is an ultimate attack that allows you to fuse together with your entire party to deal devastating damage on the enemies

While many of this year’s Pokemon celebrations have made sense, this one is a little more…bizarre. Japan’s official Pokemon YouTube page has posted an animated music video, featuring a catchy tune and everyone’s favorite useless fish, Magikarp. Watch it below:
