Skylanders Giants adds 20 new characters, including giants named Tree Rex and Alchemist.

Skylanders Giants, a sequel to the popular Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, is coming out this fall, Activision announced at Toy Fair today.

The biggest addition to the game are the giant characters, which are approximately double the size of regular characters and also light up when near or on the Portal of Power. As of now, there will be eight of these new characters added, along with eight new regular-sized Skylanders. Curiously, the revealed information also says there will be 20 new characters in total.

Every character from the original Skylanders is 100% forward compatible, and players will be able to experience brand new gameplay ranging from new Hero Challenges to new multiplayer modes.

Unfortunately, the status of the 3DS version of this game is unconfirmed. It is definitely coming to Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, but Activision has neither confirmed nor denied the status of a possible Vicarious Visions-developed 3DS version.

Skylanders Giants is coming out this fall. The only price mentioned so far is $69.99 for a starter pack.

I like how Flameslinger has another blindfold under his blindfold.  Sort of disappointed Drobot, Whirlwind, and Drill Sargeant weren't in the video (House favorites.)  They do like Trigger Happy.

I'm excited.  My wife was a little worried a couple of weeks back that they wouldn't be doing any more.  Now to just go and get the 4 figures I need to complete my collection...

Of all the available ones yeah 4. Unless they released a new wave last weak.

I need Slam Bam, Sonic Boom, Double Trouble, and Cynder.

Ah.  I only need one of the already-released ones...  I was just wondering if you had gotten some special favors from Activision or something. ;)

I can't believe I missed Sonic Boom when Skylanders were easy to get.  There was a ton of her and I was sure I picked one up.

They definitely have to release this to the 3ds! :@  I guarantee you millions of skylanders fans will be pissed off if they don't release it to the 3ds :-\
