Crossy Road paves its way to the ‘splattiest’ place on Earth
On the heels of this week’s Disney Magic Kingdoms launch date announcement, Disney Interactive maintained their mobile momentum today by revealing a collaboration with game developer Hipster Whale that will soon see over 100 characters join the game shop’s endless, road crossing splatterfest in Disney Crossy Road.
“Move over Chicken, there are new road crossers in town!
Staying true to the original Crossy Road’s 8-bit flavour, the game will send players hopping their way across 9 different levels, all with Disney and Pixar themes.
The announcement at GDC 2016 in San Francisco, was accompanied by a teaser trailer and some hints at what to expect.
“Move over Chicken, there are new road crossers in town! From Hipster Whale and Disney comes Disney Crossy Road – an all-new take on the 8-bit endless adventure to cross the road without splatting,” reads the video’s YouTube description.
Hipster Whale first published Crossy Road in 2014 and it was an immediate hit with over 50 million downloads in its first 90 days, earning the Australian game shop $10 million. To date, the game has found its’ way to over 120 million devices.
