In addition, more toys have been added to the Toy Box to allow for more detailed games with beginnings, endings, winners, and losers. A news feed will also be featured on the main menu, giving players access to more storage, and allowing them to like and store user-generated toy boxes.
Donald will deliver his signature catch-phrases, fiery temper, and special abilities like tossing objects, sweeping up enemies with a broom, and becoming a feathered fury to the new Toy Box mode, where families will be able to use hundreds of Disney- and Marvel-themed items, locations, props, vehicles and characters.
A new Donald Duck themed Power Disc will also be available for players to use in the Toy Box mode, which allows players to change the characters’ outfits, among other features.
