In Skylanders, Turn Your Toys into Video Game Characters (TRAILER)
The game works with toys you can purchase in stores and place on a piece of hardware called the “power portal,” which brings the characters into the Skylanders game. Everything you do with your character is saved to the statue you bought in the store, and you can take those toys to friends’ houses and play there, or transfer to a game on a different system and play there. And the more toys you buy, the more characters you can play in the game.
Sounds like a bit of a racket, but at least it’s a cool idea. Check out the trailer below to see the game in action.
