🎬🎮 Disney play By Eren

Hello everyone and welcome to this new section on Disney multimedia news!

Have you already got stars in your eyes from what my comrades have told you just now? Well, we’re going to add another layer right here, because this time I’ve been delighted to hear some great announcements.

Speedstorm open to all !

Yes, we’ve told you about this Disney-inspired Kart game several times now. The classic Mario Kart gives way to our favourite heroes in an even more explosive game. This great game for Switch has made the date official: it will be open to everyone on 28 September!

Gone are the days of paying founding packs! From now on, all you have to do is turn on your switch to play.

With new characters and a recently-released season 2, we’re hoping that the game’s free-to-play status will give it the popularity it deserves. In any case, the game’s creators seem delighted with its launch:“Since the launch of Early Access, we’ve received invaluable feedback and support from players, which have been instrumental in shaping Disney Speedstorm into the incredible racing experience it is today.” says Aska Suzuki, Game Manager. “Our incredible community’s enthusiasm, dedication, and love for the game have been our inspiration from day one, and we can’t wait to continue this journey together as we enter this exciting new phase.”

“We are immensely proud of what Disney Speedstorm has become,” says Alexandru Adam, VP & Studio Manager, Gameloft Barcelona. “With the additions and improvements made during Early Access, we are excited to move to free-to-play which allows for a true and robust competitive and co-op player experience.”  

Lorcana arrives in force!

The Disney trading card game seems to be on a roll! Many shops are announcing a pause in their pre-sales, and a French association has even been set up! We can’t help but be delighted by these initiatives taken by fans. In any case, the new cards are arriving all the time, we’re discovering the future characters and their powers, and we can’t wait to play.

If you want a taste, the website has been updated with the rules already explained. Click here to find out more about Lorcana.

Our flight to Worlds of Disney is now over and you’re back home. We hope you enjoyed your trip with us! Now it’s our turn to head off on holiday, but we’ll be back in September without fail!

Pss! If you missed the previous issue, it’s over here!

Passionate about writing and the world of fairy tales to the point of making it the subject of my thesis, the magic of Disney touched my cradle and never left me. From the enchantment of the princesses to the most incredible adventures, it is this pinch of dreams that has imbued my pen. Today, surrounded by a team of experienced Disneyans, I am happy and honored to extend the magic to everyday life.
