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.

The vocal minority’s opinions only mean so much, but when it’s calling you “the evil empire,” it might be time to set the record straight. Such was the aim of a recent PAX East panel, during which Activision-owned studios Vicarious Visions, Raven Software, and High Moon stormed the stage with some sunshine and butterflies to balance out the publisher’s heaping helping of doom and gloom.

Past the break is the launch trailer for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, which hits shelves September 15.
We had a look at the game during GDC, and it’s definitely chock-full of superheroes.
Which side to choose though, is another matter as well as which format: DS, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, or Xbox 360.

Stan Lee stars in the latest video for Vicarious Visions’ Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.
In it, his coolness talks about how superheroes don’t need to be registered with the government-unless they turn bad. But then, they are no longer superheroes at that point.
Basically, it’s a video with Stan Lee in it – which is good. Watch it below the break.
Game’s out September 15.

If you watched the new trailer for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 we posted on Friday you may have noticed at the end of it that the word “Fusion” was no longer in the title — and for good reason: it’s been removed.
A spokesperson for Activison confirmed the name change when contacted by Evil Avatar saying:
“The title previously announced was a working title, and they decided to go with simply ‘Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2′ for the name.”
So there ya go.

Superheroes everywhere. Acitvision’s got into the Comic Con spirit by releasing a Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2: Fusion trailer, and very super it looks too. After the break.
The action RPG will be high on the list for super-fans, what with its warring superheroes, super effects and ability to combine powers.
No firm details on this, but PS3 and 360′s a given. No date.
