We have also learned that Merida and Maleficent will be Toy Box figures only and will not be a part of a Play Set. Keep in mind that the Toy Box mode for Disney Infinity 2.0 is completely revamped and will contain mini-missions and in-game abilities than ever before - so the experience should be completely enhanced from the previous version. That being said, we were still hoping for an entire Brave Play Set but we're still happy Merida will be included in the 2.0 release of the game.
ADDITIONAL FIGURE DETAILS
Players will be able to use both characters, plus hundreds of Disney-themed items, locations, props and vehicles, to create new adventures in customized worlds.
Merida: With her untamed fiery red locks, this headstrong Princess will definitely leave her mark in Disney Infinity. Between her sharp sword and bow combo attacks with ricocheting arrows, she can upgrade her aim with elemental freeze arrows, freezing enemies in front of her then following up with rapid shots showing off her impressive athletic skills as an archer and sword fighter.
Maleficent: The wicked title character from the upcoming Walt Disney Studios film employs numerous magical powers and can attack using her magic in melee and ranged combat. To defeat enemies, Maleficent has the ability to utilize projectile and area of effect attacks that affect multiple targets within a specified area, brambles that she summons from the ground and ravens that she can call on to attack targets.
IN-GAME TRAILERThe official Disney Infinity YouTube channel has also uploaded this new in-game trailer which really showcases Merida's wild abilities - plus, it's really neat to see her utilizing the Angus power disc from Disney Infinity 1.0 (which is still compatible with the 2.0 release).
