Update: This can be fixed! You’ll need to do a hard reboot of the system, and then Cars 3 should be fine. It’s definitely not an isolated incident though, and we’ve seen a few reports about this happening. Hopefully Warner Bros. and Avalanche will put out a patch to prevent these issues.


Original: You may want to hold off on purchasing Cars 3: Driven to Win on Switch. We’re hearing that the game doesn’t go beyond the title screen, meaning it can’t be played at all.

Here’s a look:

A new game based on the Cars 3 game was announced last month. It’s being developed by Avalanche Software – the same team behind Disney Infinity.

Platforms for the upcoming title weren’t announced at the time. But thanks to a new classification in Brazil, it’s now known that Cars 3 is planned for both Switch and Wii U.

Warner Bros. will publish Cars 3 later this year.

Warner Bros. announced today that a console game based on Cars 3 is in development. Platforms were not announced, but you can bet that it will appear on Nintendo platforms.

What’s particularly interesting here is that the title is being made by Avalanche Software. For those who are unaware, it’s the same team behind the Disney Infinity games. After the plug was pulled on Disney Infinity, we heard that Avalanche had closed. Apparently though, the studio is back in action. Avalanche’s Octane engine technology will also be used to develop the Cars 3 game set for release later this year.

Before the plug was pulled on Disney Infinity, a whole bunch of figures were planned. We’ve previously seen designs for Peter Pan, Spider-Gwen, and plenty others.

An artist who worked on Disney Infinity has since revealed the existence of a Rogue One series. In an image posted on ArtStation, he writes that he sculpted a Baze Malbus model, but it was sadly cancelled.

Disney Infinity 3.0 came to a premature end in May. With the game meeting such a sudden halt, much content was scrapped despite being well in development. We’ve already heard about the Dr. Strange figure that never made it to market, but that wasn’t the only new toy in the pipeline.

Infiniteer Adventures recently spotted concept art for various figures that never made it to market, some of which were further along than others. Among these include:

– Peter Pan
– Spider-Gwen
– Goofy
– Jafar
– Hera
– Avatar
– Lightning McQueen Premium Figure
– Buzz Lightyear Premium Figure
– Elsa Premium Figure
– Darth Vader Premium Figure
– Hulkbuster Premium Figure
– Jack Skellington Premium Figure
– Hulk Premium Figure

You can see what these figures could have looked like in the gallery below.
