The game will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive title to be released in 2018.
The Battle Mode is the main mode of the game. In this one, up to four players duke it out with all characters and arenas available to play with. There are many options that the players can pick in order to enhance their gaming experience.
There will be a total of 120 playable characters. __ will be ready from the start, while __ more will have to be unlocked in order to use them in battle. At the moment only characters have been confirmed. According to Sactown Studios, much research was put into various Disney properties such as Disney Animation, Marvel Comics, the Muppets, Star Wars, various live-action propertires, and Indiana Jones in order to make the roster. Many obscure and forgotten characters are to appear on the roster alongside iconic, and recent Disney characters.
There will be a total of __ arenas in the Disney Altercation. These arenas are all ready from the start, and are based off of famous Disney locations, complete with various Disney spectators watching the fight in the background!
An arena that takes place in the middle of the House of Mouse. Various Disney characters are seen in the background as spectators to the battle at hand, while Huey, Dewey, and Louie appear as the performers, the Quackstreet Boys. Audience members will often throw out items to help the player during battle.
Travel back to the 1920's in this classic arena. Fight on board the famous Steamboat Willie as Captain Mickey drives along the river! Peg-Leg Pete will often appear to distract the fighters, but can easily be defeated.
Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg, or at least because there's a battle going on here! Travel around locations in Duckburg during the battle, including stopping for a dip in Scrooge McDuck's famous money bin!
San Fransisco and Tokyo are ONE city? Sounds cool enough. Battle through a futuristic city where anything can happen! Just don't fall off, that's quite a long fall, and oh, there's robots. What could go wrong with robots?
An arena set in the area of the same name from the X-Men franchise. The settings of the room are changed throughout the battle by Professor Charles Xavier who sits in the background controlling the room during the battle.
Light the lights, and put on make-up! It's a battle inside of the Muppet Theater! The Electric Mayhem is playing music, Rowlf the dog is on the piano, and Statler and Waldorf are heckling you in the background! What could go wrong here?
Fight in the middle of the cutest little town in Cabarator County, also known as Radiator Springs. Fighters do battle in the middle of the town where the citizens and tourists appear as spectators. The Deliquent Road Hazards occasionally appear and drive through the arena, often followed by Sheriff. Every once in a while, Tractors will run amok through the battle, followed by an angry Frank who charges through the arena.
Normally, ballrooms are for dancing, but here in the Disney Altercation, its a battlefield! Considering that there are other characters dancing in the background, I suppose that fighting is a new style of dancing?
Many characters that didn't make the roster appear as cameos throughout the arenas. Due to the game's plot revolving around merged Disney worlds, many background characters appear as spectators in areas where they would normally not be found.
