Rumour: Skylanders 3 On The Cards in New York?
Posted by Andy Robertson
Big announcement incoming?
After a rather impressive outing with Skylanders Giants on the Wii U, not to mention pretty solid version on the 3DS, Nintendo owners would do well to turn their eyes towards the next iteration of Activision’s profitable family game.
You see, Activision has used the New York Toy Fair to announce each Skylanders game, and it is almost upon us again.
Recently, Fusible.com discovered some Skylanders URLs registered by MarkMonitor, who are the company who already manage Skylanders.com. On January 30, 2013, four names were registered: SkylandersKaosAlliance.com, SkylandersNanoForce.com, SkylandersSuperForce.com and SkylandersSwapForce.com.
As they surmise, this may indeed point to an upcoming announcement. Not only that but it gives us a hint of what the next Skylanders game may be called.
Family Gamer recently had the opportunity to ask Toys for Bob Studio Head, Paul Reiche, about the likelihood of a New York Toy Fair announcement of Skylanders 3 and he confirmed that it would be the logical location and time – without coming right out and officially confirming it, of course.
It may be that the announcement is tied with an upcoming event tomorrow (5th February) at Time Square where gamers can get their hands on a rare Ninjini figure for free, not to mention discounts on the game itself.
Can you see another Skylanders game on the horizon? Or do you think it's too soon following the release of Giants? Drop a comment to let us know.
