Video: Disney's Planes Trailer Flies Into View

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Exclusive to Nintendo systems

Earlier this year it was confirmed that Disney's Planes will be coming exclusively to Nintendo systems, covering Wii U, Wii, 3DS and DS. It'll arrive in North America on 6th August, just before the film arrives on 9th August; as most of you probably already know — or will have guessed — this is a follow up to the hugely popular Cars franchise.

Disney has released a new trailer for the title, confirming that the game will go beyond the storyline of the movie; so maybe catch the film before picking up this tie-in. The official spiel also assures us that a number of the film's stars will make an appearance.

From above the world of “Cars,” the “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.

You can check out the trailer below, so let us know what you think.

A Nintendo exclusive? Interesting. I hope this brings in the younger demographics to the Wii U platform.

This is a game that could easily be terrible for obvious reasons but I'm hoping they actually put pride and joy and quality assurance into making it a sweet game. I'd love to be compelled to buy it then.

There's rarely any flight simulators nowadays (can this be considered one), I might pick this up.

Who cares about Fifa, Madden. COD, Battlefield if we have DISNEY PLANES?




It may not be good for Nintendo and the Wii U if the game's released on the Wii. On the other hand, it probably wouldn't be good for Disney if there was no Wii version.

If anything like Crimson Skies on the original Xbox it should be good. Not holding my breath though...

Bring out the shovels! Although it might not be that bad. Maybe younger players will enjoy it.



Pod said:

As I recall, both Brave and Tangled were exclusive to Nintendo systems as well.

Not that these are the most stellar exclusives, but that's still quite a deal Nintendo has landed themselves there. Or maybe it isn't a deal at all, but Disney just don't feel they can sell much on the competing machines.

Cars on the GCN was great, though that was a result of being developed by the studio behind the MX series.

This looks decidedly average, in a sub-'current HD console level' kind of way. It looks to be in between Wii and Wii U graphics-wise, so I actually hope that this trailer is the Wii version, otherwise it's rather bland.

@SetupDisk In my humble opinion they were okayish and fun enough, so if you can pick them up for a nice price they're nice entry level racers for a dad and his kids to play together or, if you don't have any your little brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces. For us over thirties it's way too easy (especially the first one) and you will finish them in no time, even the second game, which offers more variety in gameplay, but is still easy, especially compared to other 'Toon' or arcade racers on the Wii.

OH WoW another game aimed at little children on Wii U!!!!!! Come on Nintendo you said this would be a gamers machine again....... the average gamer is more like 25-35, not 5-10.



Pichuka97 said:

Its nice to see people still supporting Wii and DS. Hopefully they still ahve a few years left in them.



Bender said:

@GamerJunkie Wow, one bloody game announced for younger audiences out of an AWESOME lineup of upcoming titles, and you are complaining. It isn't even as if Nintendo is the one who came up with the idea to make it to begin with, Disney did, and offered Nintendo money to put it on their console. Nintendo being the awesome friendly company they are, they couldn't refuse. So get your head out of the XBONE gutter and look forward to the awesome titles headed our way.

This game looks rather plane to me, at least conceptually. I wouldn't be surprised if the game play ends up taking a nose dive in quality. Consumers might want to barrel roll away from this one. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong and it'll take flight on the charts.

I'll checked out the reviews but looks like a bargain bin idle Sunday kind of a game

I think this has some serious potential. Graphics aren't amazing, but if it plays like mario kart, it could kick some booty.



shinobi88 said:

I'm glad it's so easy to get information about the 3DS versions of these games (detect sarcasm, por favor). Hopefully the 3DS version mirrors the version from that trailer (and it should considerin the graphics aren't all that). And hopefully the DS version is a side-scroller or vertical-shooter for a lil variety of choice

Let's hope the Wii version isn't the same as the Wii U one. Hopefully this game has some decent 4/5 player.
