Just announced for Toy Fair 2012, Activision is adding Skylanders Giants to their toy line up in the Fall. This is a video game with new tech that my son reviewed last year here.
And now for the update!
“Skylanders Giants builds upon the breakthrough fundamentals of the Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure™—merging the physical and virtual realms with an innovative line of cross-platform toy figures that have “brains,” which players everywhere can magically bring to life in the world of Skylands.
Using the mystical Portal of Power®, players once again lead a team of heroic skylanders in an all new adventure to save their world. Portal Masters will journey through new areas of Skylands, encountering new enemies, solving fun puzzles, overcoming different hazards and obstacles, and finding a variety of collectable rewards and treasure.
Skylanders Giants introduces twenty new characters, among them the super-sized Giants with powers to match as well as a set of figures with new lighting technology that builds on the magic of the toys. Additionally, the game features new Hero Challenges, more Battle Mode gameplay, and advanced integration across console, handheld, mobile and the Skylanders online universe.”
This is one of our favorite video games. The added tech takes gaming to a whole new dimension. We can’t wait to try out the new characters in the Fall, stay tuned!
In the meantime, go out and buy this game, I did get a sneak peak at ToysRUs’s flyer for next week, trust me, that is the time to buy!
