Two characters from one of Disney's more popular cartoon franchises Phineas and Ferb — sleuthing platypus Agent P and the titular Phineas — are joining the ruckus in Disney Infinity's Toy Box on April 1. These two characters will be accompanied by two new power disks that give Toy Box a makeover to look like Phineas and Ferb's city of Danville: one is for an all-over terrain remake and the other paints over Disney Infinity's Skydome to look like the TV show's cloud-pockmarked sky. The Danville power discs even recreate the show's antagonistic Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated building and a small waterslide park invented in one of the cartoon's episodes. Phineas carries his trademark Baseball Shooter, a gun that fires baseballs, while Agent P uses his signature fedora to thwack...

A new trailer for Disney Infinity touts the best part of being able to create things in its Toy Box mode: getting to knock them down and start over again. In the trailer, characters like Wreck-It Ralph's Vanellope and Toy Story's Woody the cowboy and Emperor Zurg take turns wrecking things with cars, slingshots, magic powers and their own bodies. In Polygon's official review, we found that while Disney Infinity was a bit repetitious, it recreated the feeling of playing with toys like few games ever do. Disney Infinity is available on PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS with a PC release expected before the end of the year.
