Apple on Monday announced a new game called “Disney Melee Mania”, featuring iconic Disney and Pixar characters, which will be added exclusively to Apple Arcade this December.
Created by Mighty Bear Games, Disney Melee Mania showcases several Disney and Pixar characters battling together in a virtual arena. Characters from “Frozen”, “The Incredibles”, “Toy Story”, “Wreck-It Ralph” and more battle against each other in 3v3 (three versus three) matches as they compete to become the ultimate Disney champions, the first Disney game of its kind.
Initially, there will be 12 champions to choose from. More characters will be added regularly, each with their own set of iconic moves and unlockable cosmetics. Throughout five-minute matches, players must score the most points possible or defeat their opponents as many times as they can in order to win.
Mighty Bear Games CEO Simon Davis said, “We’re thrilled to work with Disney to bring these beloved characters to the first-ever Disney and Pixar battle arena game, available exclusively on Apple Arcade. Fans will compete with arcade-style Disney and Pixar champions in a fun and frenzied all-out brawl to survive the chaotic melee and stay in the spotlight.”
