Activision have finally revealed their plans for Spyro, and those plans are in the form of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. USA Today have the details of this new direction for the franchise.

[User Posted Image]

This is apparently the "innovative new universe" that "will bring the world of toys, video games and the Internet together in an unprecedented way" that Activision recently mentioned in their Financial Results. Which means the game is likely unrelated to any previous Spyro games and you'll be using various real world action figures from a set of more than 30 characters to interact with the game in some manner.

No platforms are mentioned specifically other than "multiple systems as well as computers, handhelds and phones" but earlier rumours suggested Wii and DS as candidates. They also give a release date of "this fall".

Thanks go to Aura24 for finding the article.

Spyro's Kingdom IS Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. Spyro's Kingdom was the test title.

Classic Spyro fans wanted an original spyro fan, and they got it. Now some of them already claiming about the things they don't like in the game, like Spyro's design.



Hmm...


Ha ha ha. smilie


I hadn't realized earlier this was based on classic Spyro though. 3: Interesting idea since it hasn't been visited in a good long while, but I like the LoS universe some moar. Maybe since this is a spinoff, it seems, there'll be another game.

The character design looks like something that they came up in Spore, a bit mean and "monstery". If it turns out to be a MMPOG, I don't really think it would work out since all of the previous spyro games have all been platformers. I say they should have brung back the Spyro Movie.

I called it. So far, all I've seen are people complaining about the design. I freakin called it.

Sometimes I wonder if anybody plays games for entertainment anymore. It seems to be all about complaining. Granted, I plan to make a career out of that, but that doesn't mean I hate everything. Yeah, the design is different, but I'm syked for the game.

*sigh* It's ANB all over again.

The starter pack comes with 3 figures. Odds are the adventure pack will come with more. I'm guessing 6.

Is Spyro required? Is Cynder in it? 'Cause I'd much rather be her than a mutant model..

Well, big sad face from me. I really hoped they'd continue the TLoS-games, but on the other hand, they might just have screwed them over with a new installment.

But as opposed to the rest of the world, it seems, I ADORE the new Spyro-model! He actually looks like a dragon this time (or my view of how a dragon should be)! And his eyes are so pretty.

Well, I'm giving this a try.

More info:

Quote: Activision

  • Each Character Has its Own Unique Powers – In addition to the highly collectible design and personalities of the toys themselves, each character has different powers and abilities, opening different experiences inside the game. Players can drop in and out of each level with as many different characters as they like, making each players experience unique.
  • Toys With Brains – Each toy/character remembers the player's shared experiences. Achievements and leveled up capabilities earned in the game are embedded inside the toy and travel with the toy. Wherever the toy goes, its experiences go with it.
  • Portal of Power – The Portal of Power serves as the gateway between our world and the amazing world of the characters in Skylanders Spyro's Adventure.
  • Play With Friends – By placing two characters on the Portal of Power at once, players can team up together for cooperative play, or face off in player versus player battle arenas utilizing their leveled up characters.
  • Diverse Experiences on Diverse Devices – While the toys can be used with gaming consoles to play the disc based game, completely different gaming experiences await them on the mobile app and inside the Web World, each of which were designed specifically for those platforms. The result is a remarkable number of different gaming experiences in one game.

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure lets kids take on the role of a powerful Portal Master, who can control over 30 different characters, including the beloved purple dragon Spyro. Each of these heroes is a protector of an amazing, mysterious world, but they have been ejected from their world by the sinister Portal Master known as Kaos and now they are frozen in our world as toys. Only the players of Skylanders Spyro's Adventure can get them back into their world, by embarking on a fantastical journey where they will explore mythical lands, battle menacing, outlandish creatures, collect treasures, and solve challenging puzzles as a part of the quest to save their world.

It gets worse. So you must by toys for each character AND get the game for diffrent platforms to get the full experience?

Clearly Activision is run by vampires. And they must be shot. With Anti-matter torpedos.

Depending on how the 'toys' are done, it may be that there will be additional releases (if they contain all data related to the character).

No. You don't NEED to get all the ports. That's just like with how the PS3 version of Arkham Asylum has the Joker, but you want the 360 version badly. You don't need both.

It just means that certain ports have exclusive items. I see that happen all the time.

Once again, that doesn't make it neccessary to get other versions.

Look, you guys wanted a game that was based off of the classics, and you now have it. And instead of thinking positively, you guys only find more to complain about.

I must wonder if gaming is even about enjoying yourself anymore. I complain all the time too, but when something good comes up, or I find a good game, I don't run my mouth about it and complain about petty crap.

It would if you what the complete experience. They are chopping it up and you cannot even get the full game on your platform of choice.
