smileBASIC was recently removed from the 3DS eShop. The game was being used to run an exploit, which would in turn give access to running unsigned code on the platform. It seems this issue has now been fixed, as the title is heading back to the eShop on July 27th.
Disney Infinity is dead, but LEGO Dimensions is rolling on with a bunch of new content. Now that Disney brands aren't popping up in Infinity anymore, could we see some of that head to LEGO Dimensions? Warner Bros. talks about the idea below.
Coming from a Polygon interview with Doug Heder, producer at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment...
"We are excited about the opportunity. Their leaving the toys-to-life space seems like a good thing in terms of creating more space for us. We are partners with Disney through our many stand-alone games, like Lego Marvel. With any opportunity for Lego Dimensions, the first and foremost thing we explore is, can the brand play and mash up with all of these other brands?
What we hang our hat on, the pillar that still stands out as unique within this category, is that we have a very story-rich game. We don't just pay homage to these brands; we tell new stories and old stories. The original [Lego Dimensions] campaign was a really big chunk of content that in and of itself mashed up all of its brands together. It's more than putting an item on the pad and having it come to life in game, and then having it around physically. You take apart, rebuild, upgrade our toys, and that changes the experience."
