The next iteration in the Skylanders franchise, Skylanders Giants, is coming to mobile platforms in addition to the Nintendo 3DS, Xbox 360, and Wii, publisher Activision has confirmed at E3, according to a Pocket Gamer post.
Giants is a pure follow-up to its groundbreaking predecessor, offering similar play with one ... big twist. Eight of its twenty new figures will be larger than the others, which explains whole "giant" part of the game's name. New modes and challenges are also being promised, in addition to light-up figures.
Of course, all of those details are for the traditional versions of Skylanders Giants. As of right now, it's unknown if the mobile versions will be straight-up ports with some sort of cool technology that'll allow people to scan in their toys or if they'll be cheesy spin-offs like Skylanders Sky Patrol on the App Store.
We'll be keeping our eyes on this, but the wait shouldn't be too long. Giants is due out this year, and presumably pretty soon.
