Last May Disney decided to cease development on its toys-to-life series Disney Infinity and it closed down developer Avalanche Software in the process. But now the studio is back and it's making a different Disney game.
The most viewed video game video on YouTube is not a scream-filled Let's Play by PewDiePie or a trailer for League of Legends.
Dance yourself slim game Zumba Fitness has won an eighth consecutive week at number one.
Its sales rose this week, up by 16 per cent, and it outsold the rest of the top five games combined.
It's now been top 11 weeks in total, which makes it the joint third (with FIFA: Road to the World Cup '98 and FIFA Soccer '96) best streak of all time.
An uninspiring week of game releases sees Zumba Fitness unchallenged. It landed top of the UK all-format charts once again.

Pixar's Cars is a godsend to the weary games developer, tired of crowbarring kids movies into wheezing platform-game shapes, picking out the key action scenes and working out how best to stretch them into something that will work on a console.
The adventures of Lightning McQueen cut through all of that. When all your characters have wheels, and your hero is a racing car, the game genre sorts itself out naturally. No matter what you need them to do, it's got to be a driving game. And now, with Cars 2, Lightning and Mater have become international secret agents, with missiles and guns and a cackling bad guy. Driving. Shooting. Cackling. It's almost as if Pixar is writing the game design document for us!

Cars 2: The Videogame will launch on DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 this summer.
It's developed by Avalanche Software, the team responsible for Toy Story 3: The Videogame, which was surprisingly great.
