Skylanders 4 Early Reveal (22nd April in UK) Is It Skylanders Switch?

2,678 views 1 day ago
Having seen the different invitations popping up online for the upcoming Skylanders events we were excited to receive our own. Not only does Chaos talk about our "so called Great Britain" rather than "so called Big Apple" but it also has an earlier date than other territories of 22nd April.

I showed the invitation to my kids and they combined it with the Skylanders Key that surprisingly turned the video on and off when placed over Eon's face. They are convinced that this is a hidden clue about the upcoming game. Their guesses based on this is either Skylanders Switch or Skylanders Keys, where you can use some kind of key to unlock different moves in the toys.

Although this is speculation there is some logic at work here as the interchangeable weapons spotted at the Mega Blocks stand at Toy Fair would need to work in this way. Switching a weapon or armour on the toy could then be refelected in the game. This also matches with Paul Reiche's comments to One of Swords about the game drawing on their adventuring and role play roots.

It will be interesting to see what is unveiled on the 22nd. Why not drop a comment here and see if our combine Skylanders knowledge may hit it lucky by guessing what the next innovation will be.

This week sees the first outing for the new Family Gamer TV weekly news show. The program, hosted by Jordan Erica Webber (video game critic for the Observer amongst others), aims to pick out applicable gaming news for families while also taking a look at video-game sales chart broken down by the PEGI age groups.

Andy Robertson of Family Gamer TV said of the new enterprise, "while families will often dip in to more avid gaming sites to find out what's happening with the likes of Skylanders, Minecraft, Disney Infinity and LEGO games there hasn't been video that keeps them up to date with news on a weekly basis. We are simply filling that gap."

Focusing on game sales by age group offers a different take on what is hot in video-games. Titles otherwise submerged beneath big sales in the PEGI 16 and PEGI 18 category can now get more of the limelight. It also reveals how few big selling games are found in the PEGI 12 category, something the industry would do well to rectify.

From here the show dips into the latest news, rumours and updates on the big family games, while also keeping an eye out for indie titles and lesser known experiences that might be a good fit for families.
Finally the show rounds things off with a look at the upcoming releases, again grouped by PEGI rating. This offers a chance for families to plan how they may spend their gaming allocated funds a little more wisely.
