Skylanders: Giants Presents… Swarm

Meet Swarm. He’s a giant bee.

Yes, that’s right, it’s time for us to start getting to know the new Skylanders, in preparation for Skylanders: Giants, which has been confirmed for 3DS, Wii and of course Wii U. So regardless of what system you play on, you’ll still be able to buy more figures.

Aww, yeah. (I think my bank account just went into hiding.)

Of course, Activision wants to make sure we’re still thinking about Skylanders come game release time, so they’ve provided us with a mini trailer for a new character from the upcoming sequel. He’s a super-sized bee that uses stingers as projectile weapons, slashes enemies with blade-like limbs, and appears to be a rather effective melee force.

Here’s his bio (yes, that’s right, his bio):

“Swarm was once a prince from a proud race of mysterious insect warriors that had built their entire civilisation 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.”

Here’s the video to see him in action!

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
