Skylanders Giants Gets Release Date
The Skylanders franchise is huge. Like really huge. Hell, Activision claims that Skylanders merch actually outsold Star Wars in 2011. So yeah, damn. Of course, you probably don’t know this, being as you are old enough to leave the house and play grown up games, but a scientific sampling of my 9 year old nephew confirms that these kids today with their loud music and strange ideas love the hell out of Skylanders.
So be ready, because they’re going to be clamoring for you to spend money come October 21. That’s the day Skylanders Giants drops in the US. It launches on the 19th in the UK. FYI, Skylanders Giants involves a new lineup of toys to interact with your Skylanders game, and will remain compatible with your original Skylanders toys. If you care about that.
