Activision has unveiled the Swarm character from Skylanders Giants, the sequel to Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure that will be coming to Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, 3DS and Wii U later this year.
Swarm is one of the eight new Giant characters that will be priced at $14.99 each. He comes from the air elemental class and basically resembles a giant bee. His official bio reads: “Swarm was once a prince from a proud race of mysterious insect warriors that had built their entire civilization inside a giant honeycombed pyramid. Growing up as one of the 9,000 members of the royal family, he was never permitted to leave the hive. But unlike his brethren, there was a magical quality to Swarm that caused him to grow much larger than the rest of his kind. No longer able to fit amongst the rest of his colony, the young prince broke the long standing tradition and stepped out into the open world – where his size and strength would be put to good use in the legendary battle between the Giants and the Arkeyans.”
When you put Swarm on the Portal of Power, he’ll speak his catchphrase, “Bring the Sting!”
