Toys “R” Us has released its annual Holiday Hot Toy List for 2011, and out of the 36 items that will the most popular this season and have parents getting in fist fights over, the only video game to make the list was Activision’s Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure.
The game even made the Fabulous 15 list.
Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure allows the user to place their Spyro action figure on a “Portal of Power,” which transports said toy into the video game world.
Players can then complete adventures, collect surprises and more that will be retained when their character leaves the game world.
When the player goes back to the game, each character will retain in-game experiences, and better still, it allows the player to transfer weapons, skills and more across all platforms its available for.
The starter set, which includes the aforementioned “Portal of Power” also includes toys for Spyro, Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy along with the game.
Skylanders will be made available for Mac, PC, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 starting October 16.
