With Skylanders Giants fast approaching in time for the holiday season, it is time for the team at Vicarious Visions to start letting us get a peek at some new Skylanders. After the E3 trailer though, things have been a little on the quiet side. Now, with just a few months before the expected October release date, we get the first character trailer of the new lightcore powered giant Skylander, Swarm.
Bring the Sting!
Character Type: Giant
Bio: Swarm was once a prince from a proud race of mysterious insect warriors that had built their entire civilization inside a giant honeycombed pyramid. Growing up as one of the 9,000 members of the royal family, he was never permitted to leave the hive. But unlike his brethren, there was a magical quality to Swarm that caused him to grow much larger than the rest of his kind. No longer able to fit amongst the rest of his colony, the young prince broke the long standing tradition and stepped out into the open world – where his size and strength would be put to good use in the legendary battle between the Giants and the Arkeyans.
Check out Swarm’s character trailer and gallery below. Skylanders Giants is expected to release this October for all major gaming platforms. Stick to The Flickcast for more Skylanders Giants, Activision and all your video game news.
