Disney Crossy Road lets you dodge traffic as Simba, Buzz Lightyear

The creators of Crossy Road have just dropped the sequel you didn’t know you needed.

Disney has partnered with game studio Hipster Whale to launch a Disney-themed version of the legendary mobile game Crossy Road.

It’s called Disney Crossy Road (obviously?), and sees players lane-hopping like before, but this time as classic Disney characters.

There are nine worlds and 100 characters in the game, all of which are based on Disney and Pixar properties. The worlds include Toy Story, The Lion King, Wreck-it-Ralph, and Inside Out.

“Disney prides itself on being fun for all ages,” said Travis Marshall, Disney associate producer, speaking to Polygon. “We like to touch all demographics, and Crossy Road is something everyone can have fun with, no matter the age.”

Marshall continued: “We were able to touch from all of our franchises, some of our ones that maybe only adult audiences are more familiar with and we’ll get younger audiences to buy into, and so it’s really going to help get everyone exposed to our great IP that we’ve done over the years.”

“Not a lot of games actually use our attractions, so that’s one thing that we plan to incorporate more into future updates,” the Disney producer added.
