Disney Dreamlight Valley: 2023 Roadmap

Disney Dreamlight Valley had an interesting launch. Characters that appeared on the splash screen did not appear in the game. Nintendo Switch users had to deal with massive amounts of crashing, and some players found the content lacking. 

The Disney Dreamlight Valley 2023 roadmap is giving us a look at what is coming in the new year. 2022 closed with the release of Stitch, and in 2023 it looks like we are going to see a plethora of new characters.


Olaf and Marabel will be joining the valley. Olaf is from Frozen and Marebel is from Encanto. We will also be discovering the secrets of the Frosted Heights biome! Along with all the new content updates we will be celebrating Disney’s 100th anniversary. 


In April we can see that Simba will be joining the valley. It is currently assumed that the new realm is going to be the Lion King realm. The roadmap says that new character(s) will be arriving in the valley, so it makes sense that Simba is not the only character coming in April. 

We will also be celebrating the Disney Parks for the April starpath. Currently, it is assumed that means we will be getting decorations from the parks. 

Early Summer 

In Early Summer we will be unveiling the secret to The Forgetting. A princess will also be racing into the valley. The community thinks Vanellope von Schweetz will be joining the valley during the summer update. You can also see a character in the window of the pumpkin house: It is currently assumed that the Fairy Godmother lives inside the pumpkin house. 

More to Come! 

Players will be getting multiplayer this year! Multiplayer is a welcomed addition to Disney Dreamlight Valley but there is no news on how multiplayer is going to work. 

It is assumed we will be seeing more new characters. Belle is featured on the roadmap and we know the devs will put characters they haven’t discussed yet into the updates. Surprise characters are a given but there is no clue yet who could be joining the valley as a surprise.

Playstation State of Play 2022

We got to get a look at some of the upcoming games of this year, and possibly next year during the 2022 State of Play. The games covered here are not just Playstation exclusive. If you want to see a quick recap check out the IGN video below!

Although many games were shown I am only excited about a handful.


Oh boy am I excited for this one! It looks like dinosaurs rain from the sky or something. Honestly, I am only expecting a fun shooter experience with what looks to be class-based elements. We are going to have to wait and see with this one!


Forspoken is one of my most anticipated games of 2022. I view it as the last chance SQUARE ENIX has to “wow” me. The premise is a young girl transported to an unknown land. Count me in. 

Forspoken was pushed back a couple of times, but I have faith that most of the game elements are going to come together.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection

I am beyond excited to play this collection! The Ninja Turtles is a guilty pleasure of mine, and I believe they could benefit from more video games.

The collection will feature 13 games from the ‘80 and ‘90 Konami collections. Never in a million years did I think this would ever happen because of licensing but here we are. I hope this collection is as successful as I believe it will be, so we get more Ninja Turtles games in general.

That’s a Wrap 

Sony showed off many games, and each of them looked fun in its own way, but 2022 is jam-packed with releases I can’t wait to get my hands on. For that reason, I had to select three games I really wanted to try.

I look forward to what the rest of the year has in store for gaming.
