Disney Universe coming from… Disney

2011 has been a harsh year for Disney Interactive Studios thus far, but the company is hoping to turn that all around with their newly announced title, Disney Universe.

Universe has players dressing up as iconic characters from the house of mouse and taking on levels with friends. The first trailer shows Sackboys a set of little blue dudes dressed up as Alice from Wonderland, Stitch from Lilo & Stich, Mike from Monsters Inc. and a Tron outfit from, well, Tron, all trying to open a chest. It doesn’t reveal much about the gameplay but it just screams LittleBigPlanet.

For an in-game look, check out the first 2 in-game screens here.

Puzzles and combat will be involved as you level up your character. Different costumes will give you different tools to advance through levels, with costumes spanning Disney’s animated, Pixar, and live action library. We’d assume, given the trailer, that co-op will be a big part of the experience.

Universe will release this fall for 360, PS3 and PC.
