In Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, users acquire real-world interactive figurines and teleport them directly into the game utilizing a mysterious Portal of Power.
Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure interaction figures have nearly 30 characters. Each interacting figure has a distinctive personality, powers, and abilities that provide advantages and skill sets for different stages, obstacles, and foes.
Action figures become interaction figures as each toy contains a “brain” that remembers the player’s shared experiences and leveled-up abilities established in the game directly within each toy. This lets players customize and power up their characters and take their interaction figures on the go for co-op gaming and PvP arena battles.
Interaction figures are classified by element kinds (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Life, Undead, Magic, and Tech) and each has its own heroic tasks. Players can gather and strategically select their favorite characters from the six-element kinds to face adversaries, obstacles, and puzzles in the game’s levels.
Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure brings “Cross-platform Playability” Players can acquire toys and bring them to life through the Portal of Power across consoles, handhelds, and the Web World.
The Portal of Power is a portal between our reality and the gaming world that teleports real-world toys into the game for players to manipulate.
Exploration — As the story unfolds, players will meet a range of colorful locations, each offering distinct challenges, riddles, secret regions, rewards, and mini-games.
Co-op play allows players to drop in and out of levels with as many interaction figures as they wish. Players can choose their favorite characters to tag-team against obstacles, hazards, and adversaries in different game levels.
Player vs. Player — A classic fight style with numerous game settings and arena maps. Each map has obstacles, hazards, and power-ups. Players should level up their varied characters to battle their pals on equal ground.
Note: Co-op, PVP, and mini-games are not available on 3DS because it’s a fresh journey in the same universe.
