There Are Still Licensed Kids Games On Consoles In 2017

Compare the release schedule of 2017 to that of 2007 and one of the biggest differences you’d see is the almost complete disappearance of licensed games for kids. Where once movies and TV shows would see average (at best) cash-ins released on PlayStation and Xbox, today they land on mobile, and are even worse. But there are exceptions.


With Cars 3 inexplicably out in cinemas soon, there’s a Cars 3 game coming to every home console, from the Wii U through to the PlayStation 4.

Does it look like something you, Kotaku reader, would pick up? Probably not. But of interest is that it’s being made by Avalanche Studios, the team behind Disney Infinity, who since that title’s sad demise have been bought by Warner Bros. and re-opened to churn this out.

Infinity featured a not-terrible car racing mode (albeit one that was greatly enhanced by assistance from OutRun’s Sumo Digital, so hopefully those improvements have stuck). So for a kid’s game, it could have worse pedigree.


Cars 3: Driven to Win is out next month, and is a full-price release.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
