Are you ready for your favorite Disney characters to get a bit edgy? Have you been eagerly awaiting an RPG featuring Belle, Oogie Boogie, and Hercules that isn’t part of the Kingdom Hearts series? Then maybe Mirrorverse is for you. Mirrorverse is an action RPG that takes several classic Disney characters, old and new, into battle.
The game has yet to receive an official release, but McFarlane Toys is already gearing up to bank on it being a big hit. We spotted several toys based on the game over at Superhero Hype. Sully, Goofy, Belle, Buzz, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Mickey made the cut for this first wave.
OK, I’ll admit that these look pretty cool. Personally, Belle is the best-looking one. Though, that may be due to her being my favorite Disney character of all time. But what is this all about? Well, I guess these characters will be duking it out on iPhone and Android.
This is Disney Mirrorverse, a visually stunning new action RPG game for mobile, set in an all-new divergent Disney universe where players assemble teams of amplified, action-ready, 3D Disney and Pixar characters to battle against a dark force.
Long ago, two stars collided to create an altered universe full of light and dark forces. In the Mirrorverse, Stellar Magic has evolved familiar worlds, now threatened by hordes of unrelenting Fractured enemies. Players unite teams of powerful Guardians to battle together through an ever-evolving narrative of epic quests to defeat the Fractured forces seeking to shatter the Mirrorverse. Choose from the vengeful draconic mage Maleficient, an armored-up Sulley, the ultimate personal-battle companion Baymax, and many more Mirrorverse Guardians. Each Guardian possesses powerful, special attacks that are unique and authentic to existing Disney and Pixar characters. They are designed to complement each other through different team roles to maximize battle potential and chemistry, enabling players to advance through multiple levels and progress to the highest rank.
Discover an ever-evolving story as you play through Story Quest mode with loot-filled chapters, limited-time Event Quests, and Dangerous Dungeons to explore. Experience the thrill and excitement of real-time action combat as you control the Mirrorverse Guardians’ individual actions, combat arsenal, team strategy, and special attacks. Build alliances with friends and compete to gain powerful rewards. Customize and strengthen your Guardian’s abilities through a deep character progression system, finding the best team combinations and strategies for the ultimate win.
At first, this game sounds like something that would make for a better PC or console game than a mobile title. That may be my jaded opinion after seeing countless “freemium” games which were more predatory than playable. However, now that I’ve seen gameplay, I can see why it is on mobile.
Mirrorverse hasn’t been a huge secret as players of the beta have been posting in-game videos for a while now. The gameplay does not appear to be too taxing or all that deep. Check out this playthrough, and let us know your opinions in the comments.
