Tron Characters Announced, Exclusive To Digital Platforms

dscdu64xjmid8b37wwknDisney Infinity gave Kotaku the exclusive this morning, Sam & Flynn from Tron are officially available in Disney Infinity on the iOS platform. They will be added to the PC in march.

These two tron characters ares will be exclusive on these two digital platforms.

“The iOS version of Disney Infinity has always attracted our largest audience, so we wanted to do something special to celebrate its launch. I can’t think of a more appropriate digital exclusive than Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron,” said John Vignocchi.

There is a debut video as well, but with a little bit of a story behind it. From Kotaku:

Vignocchi is a massive fan of Tron, which is part of the reason you’re hearing about these two new characters here first. A couple years back during an interview regarding the original Disney Infinity, I bemoaned the lack of Tron characters using my best impression of the Master Control Program from the original movie.

Which leads us to this. I am so sorry.

And this back story from John Vignocchi

Backstory of the announce is fun, [Mike from Kotaku] did an impression of the MCP for me when I met him at Comic-Con two years ago. PR was trying to come up with a clever way to announce the characters, so I suggested [Mike] do it in his MCP voice. Everyone thought I was nuts, buy let me pitch the idea to [Mike] last week (who asked PR “how do you even deal with this guy?).

So with all that back story out of the way… here is the announcement video…

 

Next question I know you are asking. Will these stay digital platform exclusives forever? As with all thing Disney Infinity, it’s hard to say. As of now, yes that’s the plan. J.V. did his typical tease on twitter. But your guess is as good as mine.

Finally that ties into the next question. Will these be physical figures in 2.0? Unfortunately not.

So this goes against what we were told on multiple occasions, so unfortunately something did change in the decision making process.

Well the long crazy ‘tron figures’ storyline has finally come to a close.

So now Disney Infinity fans, we have only one question left. How are those two Marvel power discs coming out?!

  • JimmyHACK

    Yeah, that’s dumb.

  • vongruetz .

    As a huge, huge fan of Tron, I am extremely disappointed that these characters aren’t coming to the PS4. I don’t even care if they’re only available as DLC and don’t have a physical release, but I want to play them.

  • Caitlin

    Its actually Sam and Quorra…..Sam’s surname is Flynn

  • Cellsai

    I am legitimately disappointed. Quorra is pretty much the only character in DI I’ve actually looked forward to getting.

  • DISnerdINFINITY

    Pay careful attention to the wording of all of Johnny’s tweets. You paraphrased, making it seem as though we definitely will *never* receive physical figures.

    However, what John Vignocchi actually tweeted was
    “if you haven’t heard the news, Sam Flynn and Quorra are finally announced and coming exclusively to digital platforms for 2.0.”

    And he said “No” in a response to the question from LucidInferno “Mr. Vignocci, point blank question. Will physical Tron characters be available for DI 2.0”

    So, I think it’s clear that we won’t be getting any **2.0** figures for Sam and Quorra…

    • LucidInferno

      I agree (Cool name, btw. I think that sums up most of us who frequent this site). I knew if I asked John if we’ll EVER see the physical figures, he’d reply with, “The possibilities are endless,” much like he has in the past with people asking if “X” character is coming to Disney Infinity.

      I really think they’re coming as physical figures, and they would probably have been here for 2.0 if something wouldn’t have become mucked up. JV said on Aug 19th on twitter that his favorite DI female is Jasmine, but he *really* likes the unannounced character. I can’t see Infinity NOT making one of JV’s favorites.

      • InfiniteRage99

        God damn you Lucid inferno! lol u should have asked a question pertaining to ANY version of the game! Then he would have said “Anything can be PROGRAMMED into Infinity!” lol his usual cryptic response. oops didn’t even read 1st paragraph! well if he gave a special hint then ok but i agree

        • LucidInferno

          Lol.

          • InfiniteRage99

            throwback to this thread! haha anyway sam and quorra are coming to 3.0 at launch (august 23rd)

  • Pops Racer

    VERY disappointed. Was interested in these characters since they came up at all.

  • Niktendo

    If he’s such a big fan of Tron as he claims, why would he not make sure there were figures?

    I also highly doubt the iOS version is the most popular.

  • Darrin

    Booo!!!! The artifacts are there for 2.0 in all platforms for the figures and power discs – release TRON to all!!! Trailers have alluded to these being available in the 2.0 Toy Box with various characters taking the power disc rides out for a spin. DI 2.0 has been a big disappointment in terms of communication from the DI team to its fans/consumers.

  • Stitch236

    Has there been any info on the Mulan, Flubber, and Beauty and the Beast power discs yet?
