The Cars spin-off gets a new game from Disney Interactive exclusively for Nintendo platforms.
Disney Interactive is bringing Disney’s Planes, a flying adventure video game inspired by the upcoming Disney animated comedy adventure film, to Nintendo Wii, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS on August 6th, just a few days prior to the film’s August 9th opening in theaters nationwide. The game will expand beyond the storyline of Disney’s Planes, offering players the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of flight as one of the popular characters from the film.
From above the world of Cars, Disney’s Planes video game takes players on a high-flying, action-packed, fun-filled adventure with Dusty, a big-hearted, speed-loving crop duster who is voiced by actor and comedian Dane Cook. Players will take to the skies with Dusty and other characters, including Ishani, voiced by actress Priyanka Chopra; Echo, voiced by actor Anthony Edwards; and Bravo, voiced by actor Val Kilmer, as they embark on global missions, air races and grand adventures around the world.
In Disney’s Planes video game, players travel through breathtaking environments and play as one of 10 cast of characters on console and one of 6 cast of characters on handheld in either single-player, on all platforms or race against one another in two-player drop-in and drop-out gameplay on console. Players will roll, turn and loop their way through mission-based objectives in exciting modes of play including a narrative based Story mode and a score-based mini-game that challenges the player’s precision flying skills called Balloon Pop. The exploratory Free Flight mode and racing based Air Rallies mode are exclusive to the consoles and the objective achieving Challenge mode is only offered via the handheld platforms.
The movie, which was originally developed as a straight-to-video release, is a non-Pixar spin-off of the Cars franchise. Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) is a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
