Robots, sharks & ghosts in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure

Activision has released five new videos for Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, detailing a selection of characters that your kids (or the kids you’re pretending to buy them for) can purchase as toys and scan into a console as videogame characters. 

My personal favorite is the shark dude above, although the guy known as Ghost Roaster deserves a mention because he is called Ghost Roaster. I mean, that’s a badass name right there. 

As I’ve said before, my love of the nineties has drawn me to this concept, which smacks of gimmicky nonsense we had back in the golden age of plastic garbage. The game itself looks like a solid little hack n’ slash title as well. Hopefully I can get my hands on it soon, because I’m definitely going to review it.
