Activision announce new Spyro game

Activision has just announced a new Spyro title that will supposedly be “a wholesale change in the interaction between toys and video games”. Skylanders Spyro Adventure will allow players to transport real world toys into the game world. The technology behind this can work on multiple platforms and mobile devices with the toys being capable of remembering level ups, upgrades and such.

Alek Sokolow and Joel Cohen, the writers of the original Toy story movie, will be penning the game’s script.

On the technology Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, has said that “These are more than action figures. They are inter-action figures. By pairing world class character design, world class video game design and world class story telling into one entertainment experience, we’ve given players a whole new genre that bridges the gap between the real and virtual worlds.”

“From the first time a kid picked up a stick and pretended it was a sword, toys have unlocked kids’ imaginations. And how often have you wanted to bring those toys to life, to see them become animated and take them on an adventure? Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure does just that.”

Sounds interesting enough, provided you can stomach the natural scepticism regarding the technology.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    i dont like the new look of Spyro, he looks so awkward.
    I miss the good old Spyro games, made by Insomniac…

    I’m not gonna lie, I had no idea that Activision had anything to do with Spyro. I was a fan when I was like 10, but I am not sure I would play another Spyro.

    yes so hyped

    That’s great news there! I’m one of Spyro fans and would actually appreciate another spyro game under developement!

  • In this picture, Spyro is ugly but time will tell if Toys for Bob can make a likable Spyro game. I liked Spyro when I was 10 or 11 years of age but I don’t think it’ll work on me this time!
