GoNintendo Talking Points - Why is The Disney Afternoon Collection skipping Nintendo platforms?

Today's Talking Points looks at the recently-revealed Disney Afternoon Collection. It's not coming to Switch or 3DS, and I think this is a missed opportunity in some major ways.

Digital Eclipse says "there's always a chance" The Disney Afternoon Collection could come to Switch


Not going to lie...I was pretty sad to see The Disney Afternoon Collection wasn't coming to Switch. Capcom has said there are no plans at this time, but the developer behind the title seems open to the idea. Now we just have to spread the word!

Warner Bros. & Disney announce Cars 3 by Avalanche

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that it will develop and publish the Cars 3 videogame, scheduled for 2017, based on the upcoming Disney•Pixar film. The game will be developed by Avalanche Software, which has re-opened under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and will be led by John Blackburn. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has also obtained rights to the Octane engine technology, previously developed by Avalanche Software, which will be used to develop the Cars 3 title.

“It is a tremendous pleasure to welcome Avalanche Software into our development stable, and we look forward to working with our new team, Pixar Animation Studios, and DCPI to create Cars 3 based on the upcoming film and hugely popular franchise,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The Avalanche talent and technology are a great addition to our group of outstanding developers, and we are excited for this Cars 3 game as well as all of the future games the team will create under John’s leadership.”

“Disney•Pixar’s Cars is one of the world’s most beloved and recognized franchises, and we’re thrilled to be taking the story further and faster than ever before through a new console experience based on the upcoming, action-packed Cars 3,” said Kyle Laughlin, Senior Vice President, Games, Apps & Labs, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “We are excited to once again be working with the Avalanche team, who have a deep understanding of the Disney•Pixar DNA, and a history of translating our stories into great gaming experiences.”

The Disney•Pixar Cars franchise has generated more than $1 billion at the global box office, and has a strong track record with family gamers, selling millions of units across multiple Cars titles. This includes Cars 2: The Video Game, which was also developed by Avalanche Software and sold several million copies in 2011. Cars 3 is the latest kids and family gaming collaboration between the companies, which have previously produced Lego titles for many of the top franchises from The Walt Disney Company.

Disney Infinity was going to get Rogue One figures

The cancellation of Disney Infinity was swift and harsh. We continue to see characters and playsets that were in the works, and now we've learned that Rogue One was set to get some figurines. You'd have to imagine that playsets were in the works as well. Oh, the content we could have gotten.
