The Skylanders wiki last edited by Nadafinga on 09/24/13 11:17AM View full history

Overview

Skylanders is a series of kid-oriented action games published by Activision and developed by Toys For Bob. The game interfaces with a "Portal of Power" peripheral, on which players place figurines that then show up in-game as their playable character.

Activision has stated that the game eclipsed 1.5 billion dollars in sales revenue by August 2013, (less than two years on the market) with the third game in the series (Swap Force) due out in October 2013.

Characters

New characters/figurines are released alongside each new game that comes out. While many characters are available immediately at the launch of the game, the rest are released in a staggered fashion over the following months.Through the first three games, there have been 80 different characters/figurines developed for the games, not counting "legendaries," palette swaps, and re-issues (which are mostly aimed at collectors and completionists).

Although new characters are not backward compatible with older games, all the older characters are forward compatible with new sequels, and even their stats and abilities are carried forward since that data is stored physically in the figure itself.
