Disney Speedstorm seems to be following in the footsteps of Mario Kart, a genre of video games that has been quite popular on Nintendo platforms over the past several years.
In these games, where entertainment rather than realism comes to the fore, enjoyable gameplay is presented with entertaining visuals. Disney Speedstorm is one of the games that makes this mix the best. Disney also evokes fun with its brand perception. For this reason, it was unthinkable for Disney Speedstorm to be otherwise.
Due to the game’s free-to-play component, it is possible that Speedstorm will eventually compete with Rocket League for player loyalty.
Here is all the information you need to know about Disney Speedstorm, such as the game’s characters, its racing features, the platforms it will be available on, and more.
Disney Speedstorm was announced at the first Nintendo Direct event of 2022, and the following was also noted on the new game’s official Twitter account: “The hero-based battle racing game, set on high-speed circuits inspired by Disney & Pixar worlds, is releasing this year on PC & consoles!”

Disney Speedstorm release date
Disney Speedstorm is scheduled to be released later this year, as announced in the first Nintendo Direct of the new year. It will probably not be until the end of the year and we think it will be released by the end of October.
Disney Speedstorm characters
For the new game, the following characters have been confirmed:
- Mickey Mouse
- Donald Duck
- Jack Sparrow
- The Beast
The game’s protagonists will each have unique ultimate abilities that will alter how players approach each race.
These abilities will be “great at turning the tables at the last second,” just as powerups and blue shells in Mario Kart, it was revealed during the Nintendo Direct stream.
Over the upcoming months, it’s probable that even more characters will be made available to players as paid content. There are many characters from Disney’s past that they may choose from, so there will be a ton of choices for characters in the game.
Disney Speedstorm gameplay style
Disney Speedstorm will be a racing game similar to Mario Kart, Crash Team Racing, and Chocobo GP, as was previously mentioned.
It’s fascinating that the game will be free to play, as Disney is probably going to offer paid content in the future for gamers who want to buy skins and other in-game prizes.
On which platforms will Disney Speedstorm be played?
Disney Speedstorm’s crossplay was revealed at the first Nintendo Direct of 2022. Disney hasn’t yet officially said which additional platforms the game will be accessible on, which is unfortunate.
At this point, our predictions are that Speedstorm will come to PC as well as Nintendo Switch. We don’t think we’ll see Speedstorm for Xbox or PlayStation. There is also an Android and iOS version of the game.
Of course, it was Mario Kart games that guided us in these predictions. Nintendo has always kept a distance to bring these games to PlayStation and Xbox platforms. We think that Speedstorm will be released with a similar strategy. With the announcement that the game will support crossplatform, it has started to be talked about that it will come to PC as well as Switch. Of course, the crossplatform feature can also be between Switch, Android and iOS. However, PC users should not despair because the game is already listed on Steam. If the PC and all other platforms are connected, it can be a very enjoyable game. Still, we have to wait for the official announcement.
