Activision today announced that the sequel to their smash-hit IP, Skylanders, will release October 21st. This massive sequel, aptly named Skylanders: Giants, will no doubt have children driving their parents up the wall with its batch of new characters, all of which only available by buying a tiny figurine. Activision, already known for having more money than God, had more revenue off of Skylanders between January and April of this year than any other IP.

The new update will come with the release of 16 new figures, and the sequel will include areas, enemies to fight, and puzzles. The first of the 16 exhibited is named Swarm, a giant bee, can be viewed in the trailer below.
