Disney to release Toy Story Mania home video game for Wii
I suppose that this was inevitable: a video-game-inspired theme park dark ride becoming... an actual video game.
Disney announced today that it will release a "Toy Story Mania!" video game that includes the games from the Toy Story Midway Mania attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's California Adventure. The game will be released for the Wii console this fall.
The Wii version will include the games from the rides, as well as additional galleries, according to Disney's press release.
I find it interesting that the press release continues the on-going internal battle about the name of these attractions, which Walt Disney Imagineering and the signs in the parks call Toy Story Midway Mania, but that Disney's PR departments insist on calling just Toy Story Mania. What the heck, people?
I think the PR folks are smart. The word "midway" is a loaded term, and emotes something other than the ride.
Been a while since the kids got a new Wii game, I am sure this will show up on their wanted list at some point.
It was inevitable...now what I would love is if they put into the ride some of these new galleries they will have in the Wii game!
Power to the people man.
I dunno. When it comes to Imagineers versus suits, I prefer to side with the Imagineers.
I call it "Midway Mania"
We prefer to call it "the ride that has the longest wait next to Peter Pan's Flight and suspiciously runs out of fast passes two minutes after the park opens." I know it wouldn't make a great game title, but this is how we recognize it :-)
Let's just hope it's better than Universal Studios Theme Park Adventure. Nothing like a video game that simulates standing in line for Back to the Future.
Toy Story Mania doesn't have FastPass, so that may be why you can't find FP for it. ;-)
It has fast pass. We just didn't want to come back at 8 at night when we had dinner reservations at MK.
