Gamers of all ages have made Toys for Bob’s Skylanders a hit, and for those who’ve been waiting for a new adventure, the wait is almost over. Activision has announced that the savior of many a parent’s sanity will return this Sunday with Skylanders Giants. The sequel will once again pit portal masters against the nefarious and stubbornly resilient Portal Master Kaos. Joining the original crew, who carry over all stats and customizations, are 16 new characters, including eight double-sized Giant Skylanders. The new Wow Pow system adds a new upgrade path for new and old Skylander alike—looks like it’s time to break out Trigger Happy.
Skylanders Giants will be available for 3DS, 360, PS3, and Wii. A Wii U version is also scheduled to hit store shelves alongside the system on November 18.
