Disney has announced that they will be launching a new iPad app and toy combo at the beginning of next month. This new toy will come under the name Disney Appmates, it is an interesting way for kids to play with toys and interact with the app on iPad too, and it is an interesting idea and new direction for Disney.
These are the features and specs for the Disney Cars 2 Appmates;
Exploration – Drive around the world of Radiator Springs to discover landscapes and hidden secrets by simply placing the Cars toy character on the screen and turning it in any direction. Drive through mud and up ramps, visit friends at Flo’s V8 Cafe or check out your Car’s reflection, showing off your latest gear and gadgets.
Directed Game Play – Perform missions unique to each character. Completed missions — like helping bring a tow hook back to Mater — gain hubcaps, the virtual currency. Collect enough hubcaps to personalize each car with special features like a unique horn sound, customized tire tracks, and cool gear like a rocket launcher or spy vision goggles.
Racing – Rev up the action by racing against World Grand Prix opponents and your Radiator Springs friends. Five racetracks are available at launch. Race around Willy’s Butte, jump off Carburetor Mesa and roar through downtown Radiator Springs earning hubcaps in day or night races.
The product and apps will launch on the 1st October and will be available from the Retail Disney Stores and online at DisneyStore.com
