Skylanders: Giants, the sequel to the rather successful original, is confirmed for 3DS, Wii and Wii U. That means whatever your console of choice, the opportunity to collect a lot of figures won't pass you by, which is a good thing unless you're a paying parent.

In order to keep the sequel at the forefront of our minds Activision has released a short video for a new character, Swarm. He's an over-sized bee that fires stings as projectiles, slashes anything within reach and generally looks brutishly strong: a polygon-based embodiment of sheer terror for those with a certain phobia. In any case, check out the video below to see him in action.
