There has been one new Skylanders game each year since 2011. So naturally, a new entry in the franchise is due out sometime in 2015.

Activision announced during its latest financial results conference call yesterday that an “innovative” new Skylanders game is in development. It will launch later this year.

Skylanders has continued to perform well since the original game – Spyro’s Adventure – launched in 2011. Activision confirmed in its financial results today that more than 240 million toys have been sold.

It’s worth mentioning that sales have dipped slightly over the past few years. Activision sold only 20 million toys in 2011, but moved 80 million units in 2012. That number then decreased to 75 million in 2013, and 65 million in 2014.

Update: We now have clarification that the North American launch is set for February 3. The European release is planned for March.


SpongeBob HeroPants is coming to the 3DS, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita, Activision has announced. The game is due out in March.

Here’s the official overview of SpongeBob HeroPants:

All is not well in Bikini Bottom following the events of Paramount Pictures’ The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the new animated/live-action feature film hitting UK cinema screens on 27th March. SpongeBob’s dreams are coming to life and altering space and time beneath the waves. SpongeBob must join forces with his friends to unlock their hidden abilities and put back the pieces of his shattered cartoon psyche. Along the way they’ll visit alternate forms of Bikini Bottom as it is warped by SpongeBob’s mind into prehistoric, war zone and candy-coated versions of the town.

SpongeBob HeroPants is an action-platformer featuring exploration, light puzzle, and combat elements. You’ll be able to play as SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs and Plankton. Each character can morph into a unique super-powered champion to solve challenges, unlock new areas, and defeat SpongeBob’s crazy imagination. The game also includes boss battles, upgradeable skills, and hidden items.

Activision and developer Heavy Iron Studios were once working on Family Guy: Back To The Multiverse for both Wii and 3DS. These two versions would have been very different, as they would have featured an isometric perspective.

Unseen 64 shares the following information:

A listing for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Wii U has been spotted in Target’s database. Don’t take this as a confirmation that Activision is bringing the shooter to Nintendo’s console though, as it could certainly be an error. It’s definitely peculiar that the listing has popped up after Advanced Warfare’s launch!
