Skylanders Giants, this fall’s sequel to Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, has a confirmed October 21, 2012 release date in North America.
The confirmation comes not from Activision or a retailer listing, but from an official Nintendo press release that went out this morning. In the release, Nintendo spelled out the rest of their 2012 3DS schedule and included a 3DS version of Skylanders Giants with the October 21 release date printed next to it.
There’s no additional information about the 3DS version of Skylanders Giants in the press release, unfortunately. All we know is that the game is being developed separately from the console version and, like Spyro’s Adventure, will be different than the console version.
Skylanders Giants will arrive on October 21 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, 3DS and the PC. A Wii U version is also in the works and is expected to arrive in stores during the console’s launch window. I would expect Skylanders Giants for Wii U to be available before Christmas.
