Well, here’s all the info about that big meeting during D23.
We didn’t really know what form the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase would take. At the end: twenty minutes where we barely had time to breathe! The entertainment giant chose a short format, reminiscent of Nintendo Direct, to present its ads. And we got off to a fast start with the reveal of Tron’s identity, Mysterious combo game | visual novel In a world of worship where computers and “live” software are mixed. Developed by studio Bithell Games (John Wick Hex) we will follow the story of the “detective program” to lift the veil on an “unprecedented” crime. Release date: 2023. In the process, another very nice surprise, with illusion island, a 2D platform game that combines Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Donald. Everything is planned for next year exclusively on the Nintendo Switch and it seems to rely heavily on collaboration between its characters. You’ll understand, it’s a good introduction.
Release date, new projects: Marvel in the spotlight
As we expected, a large part of the show is dedicated to Marvel. Starting with Midnight Suns, a tactical role-playing game developed by Firaxis Games (XCOM), which has taken the opportunity to reveal its release date. Until see you December 2, 2022 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series (PS4, Xbox One, and Switch versions not mentioned.) Another long-awaited project gone to say hello: Skydance New Media’s Marvel game, led by talented Amy Hennig. So there is no name, access window or gameplay images, but confirmations! Yes, the adventure will begin Captain America and the Black Panther In what looks like World War II, with two other mysterious heroes at their side. In the trailer, we can also notice the logo of HYDRA, a sinister organization led by Red Skull. Rather curiosity.
But you know superheroes. They are so strong that they are on all fronts. During the evening, Disney introduced a new mobile action game in the now available Marvel universe, Strike force. There’s not much to report except that the famous Hulk appears to be in the spotlight. Right after that, he named a man Snap Marvel To remind us that Hearthstone isn’t the only one who knows how to make collectible card games. Release: October 28.

Everything will be available next year and will undoubtedly benefit from augmented reality and cooperative adventure.
Mario Kart, Toy Star, Avatar: Disney and Surprises
Another great piece of the show is, of course, the Disney licenses! Beyond Toy Story content coming to Disney’s Dreamlight Valley this fall and launching a new action RPG for mobile Mirrorverse Which highlights the big bad guys (available now, more content in October), is particularly reminiscent of the new Speedstorm trailer. yes ! We are talking about Mario Kart Like Disney, Coming Soon on computers and consoles. The game looks promising and we were able to fully discover the circles taken from Monsters & Cie as well as all its heroes.
So yeah, we expected to see the face of the Disney Pixar heroes, but another head, blue this time, was invited to the party. We are, of course, talking about the license for Navis and Avatar – the second movie that will soon be in cinemas. After a no-news hello, just for the Ubisoft Avatar Frontiers of Pandora’s Triple A (still planned for 2023-2024 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series) we specially spotted the new images of Avatar Reckoning, MMORPG in the world of James Cameron. In the program: gameplay with the creation of heroes, combat and adventure. In the single mode it will be about lifting the veil on a mysterious story and in the multiplayer you can either cooperate or put yourself in a confrontation. It is planned “soon”.

Star Wars, Alien, Monkey Island, and a few absentees
As with Frontiers of Pandora, Disney sent us more reminders with two or three new photos. This was the case for Aliens Dark Descent, a striped isometric shooter for PC | Next year or even cult consoles will return to Monkey Island (September 19, 2022). The same for Star Wars Skywalker Saga, which will soon receive more heroes and release a full “galaxy” at the end of 2022. Moreover, as long as we are talking about the famous world of George Lucas, we must regret theFew of the big names During this show, especially Jedi Survivor, the sequel to Jedi Fallen Order. Same with Marvel. Tonight, neither Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or Marvel’s Wolverine. For those, you have to be more patient.
