Portal of Power accessory for Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure hits the FCC
Fans of the Spyro the Dragon series will be happy to know that the bizarre Portal of Power accessory for the Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure game just hit the FCC. The device, pictured above, will be released for the PS3 and XBox 360 with the Skylanders game. The Portal of Power is RFID-enabled and responds when action figures, pictured below, are placed on its top. Action figures unlock characters in the game, and can also be used to save player data such as points. Each action figure is tied to the player’s account, and can be used on other Portal of Power units. The game comes with 3 action figures, and an additional 29 will be available.
It’s a weird/kinda cool accessory that seems rather gimicky, but Spyro’s sub 10 year old demographic may feel differently. Who knows?
Skylanders is an Activision title that is scheduled to launch in Fall of 2011.
