Activision have announced the beta launch of Skylanders: Spyro's Universe following the surprise success of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventures. It's an MMO, it's got mini-games and players will be able to incorporate those little toys and collectibles. We kid you not.
"We conceived Skylanders as a unique, multi-platform experience from the beginning, simultaneously grand in scope yet incredibly easy for kids to embrace," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.
"You can play with friends in the real world or on consoles, Nintendo 3DS, Mac or PC, and now on the web in Skylanders Spyro's Universe. If there's a screen where kids play, we want the Skylanders to come to life there. This also further enhances the play options of every Skylander character."
The following trailer gives all the explanation anyone needs. Portal Masters can claim a floating island of their own, build up a lair and explore the realm of Skyland, battling and ridding the world of evildoers. Interested Portal Masters can sign up over at the beta page.
