When Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure came out, Activision was likely hoping to cash in on the name recognition of Spyro to get their product off the ground. Now, not even a full year since the game came out, this E3 trailer shows that they know that Spyro is no driving force behind their game and that the Skylanders franchise has taken on a life of its own with the last game’s title character not even appearing in this new story trailer for Skylanders Giants.
In this trailer, both new and old characters are given distinct voices and personalities as they discuss the myths about the Giants that will become the focus of Skylanders Giants this fall. What is most interesting is that the trailer specifically says, “Over 40 new characters”. This is a much higher number than originally announced which had stated only eight new Skylanders and eight Giants would be coming to the new title. This may have been prompted by Activision’s announcement that Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure and the figures were such a huge seller since its release.
Take a peek after the jump at the latest story trailer for Skylanders Giants and let us know your thoughts.
