Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Announced By Activision -- First Screenshots Showing Off Our Favorite Purple Dragon

Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, the next game in the Spyro series, has been announced by Activision and developer Toys for Bob. The story for the game is being written by writers from the original Toy Story movie, Alek Sokolow and Joel Cohen. "It's got a whole universe of characters and an incredible backstory and a number of different ways to interact with it." There will be over 30 toys people can buy in real life to be transferred into the game via a "portal." An action-figure starter pack is expected to retail for $70. Keep reading for more details and more screenshots.

The game promises to be a "breakthrough for the toy and video game industry." Players will be able to transfer their "real-world toys" through the game's "Portal of Power." Obviously Activision is excited about the cross-promotion between games and toys "opening up new possibilities and revenue streams for both industries." Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure is expected to launch this fall for the consoles, handhelds and PC. 

From the sounds of it, this Spyro game is targeting an even younger audience than its PlayStation predecessors. The press release gave very few details about the game and instead focused on how much I'm going to enjoy buying accessories to play the game with. Do you think this will be the dawn of a new way to play games with "inter-action figures" or another attempt to make money at the expense of an established franchise?
