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.
