New, 13 comments

Ninja Theory, the studio behind Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and 2013's reboot DmC: Devil May Cry, is aboard the development team for Disney Infinity 2.0, the game's executive producer told a panel at PAX 2014.

John Vignocchi said Ninja Theory has been on the project since February and was asked on because of its experience in combat systems, which it will bring to Disney Infinity. Vignocchi said the studio has so far worked on the villains Loki, the Green Goblin and Ronan the Accuser (from Guardians of the Galaxy.)

They've also developed Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, who in the game has the means of summoning a sand tornado, Vignocchi said.

"The full name of the video game is 'Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, open parentheses, 2.0 Edition, close parentheses,'" Vignocchi joked.

Disney Infinity isn't the only iron Ninja Theory has in the fire. At Gamescom 2014 two weeks ago, it announced it was working on a game called Hellblade, to be published independently. For more on Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition), see Polygon's preview from Comic-Con 2014.
