“We began something very special with Skylanders, and the magic of bringing toys
to life through a video game,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing.
“But it’s not just about the game. We know the toys have to be just as creative
and imaginative as the kids that play with them, and that’s why we’re so excited
to bring even more innovations to this genre when Skylanders SWAP Force(TM) comes
out in October.”
