Hopefully you'll all have been following the discussion in the Skylanders: Giants forum but if not then never fear, here is a roundup of some of the new videos and information for the upcoming game.

First up is the game's latest trailer, this features four brand new Skylanders (Jet-Vac, Pop Fizz, Tree Rex, Bouncer) and showcases a whole selection of others in a brief glimpse at the end.



Then we have loads of interviews with folk from Toys for Bob. G4TV has one, Coin-op TV did one, then there's one from ClevverGames, another by Machinima and one more on ScrewAttack.

For gameplay GameSpot have a vignette for the new Tech Giant Bouncer and XGNEntertainment have one for the Life Giant Tree Rex. Coin-op TV demonstrate a few of Tree Rex's moves and FanBoltGaming have posted almost ten minutes of a level playing as several different characters throughout. Wired too get their hands on the giants to play with for a short while. And the official Skylanders Facebook account has some exclusive gameplay footage too.

One of Swords brings a bit more info too, one thing is that the developer for the 3DS version appears to have switched from Vicarious Visions to n-Space. He also posted the prices for the Starter Pack ($74.99), the Portal Owner Pack ($59.99), a Giant ($14.99), a LightCore Skylander ($11.99), and a standard Skylander ($9.99).

The main four new Skylanders featured at E3 were:

Tree Rex, Bouncer

Jet-Vac, Pop Fizz


You can see some screenshots of them in the gallery. A few other Skylanders have also made an appearance at E3 including an Earth Giant named Crusher and a Life Skylander called Shroomboom.

Your original toys from Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure will be able to level up to the new cap of 15 in Giants but only the new reposed "Series 2" versions with an orange base will be able to make use of their new "Wow Pow" powers.

The game is due out this October on the Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and 3DS.

Oh and it's also the eighth anniversary of darkSpyro today, so yay for that.

What other games has n-Space done? I thought Vicarious Visions did a great job with the first one, so I am a little worried about how this is going to go.

Cynder is actually Libra from Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time.

Also, Pop Fizz is DEFINITELY Soda Popinski of Punch-Out fame in disguise. Oh, Activision... e.e
