Activision and Toys "R" Us Team up for Skylanders Launch

Activision has sent word that they have teamed up with toy store Toys "R" Us to launch the impressive co-op game, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure.  We went hands on with the game at E3 and were incredibly impressed by the title, not only for it's unique technology, but for it being a fun family friendly game too.

The concept involves over 30 characters that are placed on a base station.  Once placed they'll magically appear in the game, and any action you do with your character are saved to the physical toy.  Launching a product like this at Toys "R" Us seems like a good idea.  

The store is planning a roll-out of full game demos and interactive game kiosks in over 1200 retail locations across the globe.  Should be a great way to see the impressive technology in action.

Skylander: Spyro's Adventures is launching on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo 3DS on Sunday, October 16th.  The kiosks for the game should be available starting October 8th.  The game features two player local co-op.
