Peter Hepworth, UK Managing Director of Activision Blizzard, said "we are absolutely delighted to have won best video game at the British Academy Children's Awards. This is a proud moment". Could this be a good start and an even greater future for Skylanders?
If you're not familiar with the game Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure sees the iconic and familiar character Spyro the Dragon take on a new story with a fully cooperative mode. To get new characters in game you buy special figurine packs which contains a chip, holding a whole host of data such as gold, level and upgrades. Because of this chip you can transfer them between consoles! As you can see it's aimed at a younger gaming audience, so winning this award is a great step for them.
