The first-ever Disney & Marvel Games Showcase was held at D23 2022, and it gave us a glimpse into the Disney and Marvel video games that are currently being developed by companies across the globe. There was something for everyone, from Tron: Identity to a new 2D Mickey and Friends platformer to Amy Hennig’s brand-new Marvel game including Black Panther and Captain America.
The presence of Amy Hennig’s ensemble Marvel game, Disney Dreamlight Valley, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and Marvel’s Midnight Suns had been previously hinted at by Disney, but the show still had a few pleasant surprises, such as a platformer starring Mickey Mouse and his pals and a new Tron game. There were enough surprises to go around because 20th Century Games and Lucasfilm Games, two Disney-owned companies, also made announcements. The following is a list of everything that was revealed at the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase.
Marvel’s Midnight Sun
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will now be available for PC and next-generation consoles on December 2, 2022, following a protracted delay. Sadly, no date has been established for the Switch version’s release.
Disney Illusion Island
The second surprise of the show was Disney Illusion Island, a gorgeous-looking cooperative platformer with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Donald. Dlala Studios, the company behind Battletoads, will release it exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in 2023. (2020).
The makers of Thomas Was Alone, Bithell Games, have revealed Tron: Identity, a brand-new visual novel adventure that centres on Query, a “detective software tasked with solving the mystery of an unmatched crime.” We do know that it will be released in 2023 on PC and consoles, despite the fact that not much else was mentioned.
