Disney Infinity is being seen in families’ living rooms across the globe more and more frequently as the video game/toy hybrid continues to grow in success. It seems as if the title will only continue to sell and perform well as one of the most popular classic Disney princesses, Jasmine from Aladdin, is about to join the Disney Infinity family as a playable character.

Jasmine will be the first classically hand-drawn Disney princess to be made available as a playable avatar in the game. Disney Infinity has released a handful of other princesses, but they all come from some of the newer projects, those that feature computer-generated animation. Rapunzel from Tangled, Merida from Brave and Anna and Queen Elsa from Frozen are the royal ladies that have already been released as their own controllable figure.

Each character that users play as in Disney Infinity has their very own physical vinyl action figure which is used to transport the designated character into the game. The newer 2.0 figures run roughly around $13-$15 while some of the original figures from Disney Infinity’s initial launch can be found for an even cheaper price. There are reportedly over 60 different characters to collect and play as in the game, so hardcore gamers who long to acquire every figure will be spending quite the pretty penny on the figures alone.

There are also hexagonal chips called power discs that are available for purchase as well. These power discs have many different functions. Some will be able to upgrade characters with new powers or a new look while others will access new weapons or vehicles to use in the game. There are also power discs that allow players to completely change the look and design of the world they are in. Certain power discs are themed around famous Disney films and TV shows like Aladdin, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Phineas and Ferb, which will allow them to change the world’s sky or terrain to reflect the film or TV show that is featured on the power disc.

Princess Jasmine will be released as a single figure, but will also be available in a dual-pack alongside the Aladdin figure as well. Aladdin was released as a single figure in November, but the dual pack will be a great opportunity for those who have not yet acquired the famous street rat to pick him up. The dual pack will also feature two Aladdin-themed power discs, allowing players to transform their worlds in the Disney Infinity toy box into the vast desert realms of the city of Agrabah. A highly coveted power disc that allows users to fly on their very own magic carpet is available as well, although it is apparently a very rare find, as the power discs are sold in mystery packs, so buyers will be surprised with each power disc pack they purchase.

Disney Infinity will officially welcome Princess Jasmine as a playable character on Feb. 3, 2015. A preview of all that Jasmine has to offer can be viewed below.
