It seems like all of the most popular movie characters all have their very own free to play mobile game, and now Disney and its subsidiary Pixar are making sure that their characters can get in on the fun too. Disney Heroes: Battle Mode is a forthcoming free to play action RPG starring characters from both Disney and Pixar movies like The Incredibles, Wreck-It Ralph, and Pirates of the Caribbean. If you’ve played any number of similar free to play ARPGs over the years, you probably already know what to expect. More than 30 playable characters to unlock and transform by way of upgrading, as well as all the necessary gear and abilities (also upgradeable, natch) to equip them for success. We all kind of know the drill here, but if you enjoy these games and you’re a big fan of Disney and Pixar movies, then Disney Heroes does look quite promising.
You may recall that Disney partnered up with four established mobile development studios back in January of this year, and as Disney Heroes is developed by one of those partners in PerBlue, this will be the first fruit of that new initiative. If you’re interested in everything you’re seeing so far, you can actually head over to the official website for Disney Heroes and sign up for a pre-registration mailing list for either iOS or Android, which will net you one free hero when the game officially launches. Furthermore, the Android version is up for pre-registration right on the Google Play Store so you can opt to go that route if you wish. No specific release date has been announced but you can expect Disney Heroes: Battle Mode to launch on iOS and Android later this year.
