In the course January to April. Skylanders is now the biggest selling console and portable game there is. In addition to having record making sales when the game was released last year, Activision has cashed in on this bring your toys to life game.
The game, which has taken off in a direction not many other publishers and developers could have predicted has done amazingly well. With these record sales, of which I had helped contribute around 200 dollars to. This game has become one of the most popular new franchises this generation, and its not slowing any time soon. For a title that takes inanimate toys and brings them to life through the portal of power and gives them breath on your home or portable gaming system, they have captured a new audience that I’m sure most parents are grateful for.
Later this year we will be treated to the sequel of this “gotta buy them all” series. Skylanders Giants, which is planned for release in October of this year will feature even more fun little toys that will send your parents out to various retailers at all hours of the night. Expect to see more details and trailers to be shown at E3 next week. Who knows, maybe they will give out free money since they have so much of it now.
