Beloved Disney and Pixar characters will put aside the caring and sharing and try to beat the stuffing out of each other in Disney Melee Mania, a game that’ll launch soon on Apple Arcade.

Mickey in particular looks like he’s taken that “mania” part to the max and is ready to devour someone’s liver.

Those used to sweet and gentle Disney stories might be in for a surprise from Disney Melee Mania. “Fans will compete with arcade-style Disney and Pixar champions in a fun and frenzied all-out brawl to survive the chaotic melee and stay in the spotlight,” said Simon Davis, the CEO of the upcoming title’s developer, Mighty Bear Games, in a press release Monday.

Players will be able to take Wreck-It Ralph, Elsa, Mickey Mouse, Frozone, Moana, Buzz Lightyear and others into battle-arena action. The developer plans to add additional characters over time.

Each round of the game will begin with the player choosing from among 12 characters to battle in 3v3 matches. During each five-minute face-off, players will need to score the most points possible — or defeat the opposing team as many times as they can — for a chance at victory. Disney Melee Mania will offer fast-paced multiplayer battles that put each character’s unique abilities to the test in close combat.

Coming soon to Apple Arcade

Disney Melee Mania from Mighty Bear Games is scheduled to launch on the Apple Arcade subscription gaming service in December 2021.

“Apple Arcade delivers a worry-free uninterrupted gaming service, allowing families to simply enjoy fun and exciting gameplay experiences, all with no ads or in-app purchases,” said Alex Rofman, Apple Arcade’s senior director.

It costs $4.99 a month. And one subscription works for up to six family members. Subscribers can play more than 200 titles in the catalog, like the recently released — and similar — Lego Star Wars Battles.
