Cars 3 game planned for Switch, Wii U
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.
Cars 3 game coming from Warner Bros. and resurrected Avalanche Software

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.

Miyamoto on the Mario homage in Disney’s 2013 Mickey Mouse short
Posted on 4 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 5 Comments
A few years ago, Disney came out with a new Mickey Mouse short that has the famous character making his way through Tokyo. For a brief couple of moments, there’s a scene that pays homage to Mario with classic sound effects and all.
Game Informer decided to ask Shigeru Miyamoto about the short at E3 last month. He hadn’t seen it, nor did he know about its existence at all. After looking at the video, he did say, “Is copyright an issue for them to use our sounds? [Laughs] It’s very flattering. We finally got a cameo together.”
Ask Game Informer said that this meant Mickey Mouse could be used in one of his games, Miyamoto shook his head and responded, “They are very strict. [Laughs].”
We’ve posted the full Mickey Mouse short below for those that are interested. The Mario homage comes in at the 2:25 mark.
Disney Art Academy has released in Japan, and Nintendaan has an extensive look at it, which you can watch below.

Hyrule Warriors dev interested in working with Disney, Star Wars, Mario
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 18 Comments
Tecmo Koei is using the Zelda series for Nintendo’s upcoming Dynasty Warriors-styled Wii U game, Hyrule Warriors. But Zelda isn’t the only prominent IP the company has interest in utilizing.
“Disney, Star Wars and Mario are just a few of the various franchises we’d like to work with,” Tecmo Koei vice president Hibashi Kinuma told ONM this month.
Before Tecmo Koei can even begin considering other partnerships and crossovers, work on Hyrule Warriors will need to be completed first. That game is scheduled to arrive later this year.
