Toys For Bob’s Alex Ness has told ONM Skylanders Giants will release on 3DS and development is being handled by Vicarious Visions. According to Ness, the title will be “completely different game than the Wii version,” and it will contain 20 news characters, as well as eight Giants. Characters from the previous entry in the series will work with the game, but only the new characters will be able to hit the new level cap. It’s out in the fall on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well. Thanks, NWP.
