Disney Infinity 2.0 Comes To Vita Tomorrow With Symbiote Suit Spider-Man

Last December at PlayStation Experience, Disney announced it was bringing its toys-to-life game, Infinity, to the handheld scene. Tomorrow, that becomes a reality, as the starter kit arrives at retail.

Included in the starter is a rechargeable bluetooth base, the Spider-Man playset, the same toy box game discs that come with the console starters, and Spider-Man in his symbiote suit. You can use the black-clad Spidey in the console versions, and given the language that he’s “debuting” in the starter, he may be available for purchase later.

The base appears to have only two spots for items (compared to the console base, which two character spots and a playset/other slot). One of these is for a character (and circular discs). The other is for a playset or the hexagonal discs that add terrain, skies, and toys to the toy box. The bundle is priced at $ 59.99. 

For those looking for even more Disney Infinity information, check out our coverage hub. Disney Infinity 3.0 (introducing the Star Wars universe to the series) adorns the June 2015 cover.

Our Take
If this works smoothly, it would be a great way for kids to continue their toy box building on the go. That feature gets the most play in my house, and with my son’s adoration of Spider-Man in his symbiote suit, I need to make sure he doesn’t see this on the store shelves.

PSA: Tomorrow Is The Last Day To Earn Club Nintendo Coins

If you've got unregistered games or incomplete quizzes, tomorrow is the last day to earn some Club Nintendo coins for them. It will not, however, be the last day to redeem the coins for Nintendo goodies.

Other upcoming Club Nintendo closure milestones include May 1 being the last members can earn Elite status, which entitles them to special exclusive gifts. Finally, the last day to redeem your coins is June 30. After than day, your bank of coins will be deleted and Club Nintendo will be bulldozed to begin construction on whatever Nintendo has planned next.

If you're unsure what to use all your Club Nintendo coins for, Brian Shea put together a handy list of all the games available through the service in its twilight hours, which you can see here.

You can head here to take your final quizzes and redeem your final codes.

Our Take
Club Nintendo was great while it lasted. I got Virtual Console games like Super Mario RPG, Super Metroid, and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for free all because I had bought other Nintendo games. I am disappointed to see it go, but Nintendo has done a good job of offering some worthwhile titles right at the end. I'm curious to see what Nintendo has planned for the Club's follow-up.

New Grind Time Episode Dedicated To Xenoblade Airs Tomorrow

We couldn't end March without a true Grind Time episode. This time, we're looking at Xenoblade Chronicles.

Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the best RPGs of the last generation. Next week, Nintendo is giving gamers another chance to experience it on the New 3DS. We felt this would be the perfect time to dive in and discuss what made Xenoblade Chronicles so special and our anticipation for Xenoblade Chronicles X.

We'll be livestreaming the Wii version of Xenoblade Chronicles tomorrow 3/31 from 4-6 PM CST. (2-4 PST, 5-7, EST)

Join us on our Twitch channel then for your chance to ask questions and learn more about the game.

In the meantime, check out our recent review on Xenoblade Chronicles 3D.

Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament Arrives On Wii U Virtual Console Tomorrow

The 2005 Game Boy Advance title will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console tomorrow.

We gave the game an 8.25 when it released writing, "There’s a lot of great platforming to be had here, and the infrequent annoyances of those nasty levels and the questionable localization are a small price to pay for the opportunity to revisit the 2D nirvana that so few modern games give us a chance to experience."

The game will be available tomorrow on Wii U for $ 6.99.

Our Take
Klonoa is a game that has always received high praise, but it's one I have never gotten around to playing – despite having a lot of love for platformers. Glad I will have a chance to check the game out soon.
