Three More Skylanders Characters Heading To Stores
Yes, they're releasing three new characters for the immensely popular Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure...and you might actually be able to find these.
The game that uses little plastic figurines to allow players to select new in-game characters has expanded; the only downside is you can't buy all three together. What I mean is, they're not packaged together.
According to Joystiq, the three new characters are Lightning Rod (see video below), Zook, and Sunburn. Now, Lightning Rod and Zook will be sold separately for the standard price of $7.99 each, but Sunburn will only be featured in the Dragon's Peak Adventure Pack, which will retail for $19.99. Lightning Rod is like a kiddie version of Zeus, apparently, Zook wields a bamboo bazooka (seriously), and Sunburn is part dragon and part phoenix...and he can teleport.
Also, don't forget that Activision will announce a new Skylanders title that is slated to arrive this fall. We're hoping that all current characters will be compatible with the new game because if they aren't, chaos could ensue.
