Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure adds another fresh and imaginative dimension to the popular kids’ social game with the recent launch of Skylanders Spyro’s Universe. The new title is essentially a vast virtual landscape for younger gamers to engage in with the adorable Skylanders characters and their fellow young gamers. Activision Publishing—a fully owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.—revealed the new title earlier this month as a dramatic and gigantic expansion of the popular franchise, increasing both the value and variety on this innovative and safe platform for younger gamers to explore.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, says that the company has conceived Skylanders Spyro’s Universe as “a unique, multi-platform from the beginning, simultaneously grand in scope yet increadibly easy for kids to embrace.” Hirshberg adds that younger gamers can “play with friends in the real world r on consoles, Nintendo 3DS, Mac, or PC, and now on the web in Skylanders Spyro’s Universe. If there’s a screen where kids play, we want the Skylanders to come to life there. This also further enhances the play options of every Skylander character.”
Skylanders Spyro’s Universe is found online at universe.skylanders.com, and it is a fantastical and breathtaking realm of ethereal floating islands specifically designed to encourage younger gamers to boldly engage in building worlds, exploration, and engaging in healthy and friendly competition. Younger gamers can build and customize their own Skylands and play mini-games such as Sheep Shot, Castle Assault, and Sky Defense. They can also meet up with their real-life and online friends to further explore and investigate what Skylands has to offer. They can also learn how to manage their toy collection and earn achievements, clearly setting Skylanders Spyro’s Universe apart from its other competitors in the market.
Gamers who already have their own copy of the game or Skylanders figures can enter the code supplied with each of the interaction figure released. They can also use the Portal of Power to jump right into the Skylanders Spyro’s Universe. If you do not have any of these, there is no need to worry—you can still join in on the Skylanders Spyro’s Universe fun by simply signing up for a free online account.
